Die deutschen Hits der 50er      (2 of 2 found this review helpful)
  May 27, 2007

Hours of Mumien Schieben for the German in-laws! This disc is filled with pure nostalgia, songs that fill the ear and never leave you (if you're German or have been immersed in German culture for several decades). Sound quality is pretty darn good overall, considering that these songs are 50+ years ... more
Kraftwerk: Minimum-Maximum (GSA Version)        (7 of 9 found this review helpful)
  May 2, 2006

I've listened to this disc several times now, in both stereo and multichannel. I've had the LP box set since it came out last year, and did a comparison to that as well. I also have the GAS version of the CD, and did a quick comparison to that. The LP to SACD comparison is a bit unfair. I have an ... more
Edgar Winter Group: They Only Come Out At Night        (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
  November 7, 2005

I just got the disc a few days ago, and have listened to it enough to gain an impression, but this isn't a "serious" review. I have to admit that when this disc was announced I got very excited, for reasons of nostalgia. One of my best friends in high school had a Plymouth Barracuda with an 8-track ... more
After Forever: Remagine        (2 of 3 found this review helpful)
  October 1, 2005

What a waste of money this turned out to be! I'm a closet metal fan, so I had to get this disc. After Forever has been hyped quite a bit in Europe, and they count several bands I like as influence. Unfortunately, the influence didn't have as much of an effect as could be hoped. In a nutshell, the ... more

Some fun stuff! If anyone was hoping that a DSD transfer would clean up old, distorted, awful recordings, they'll be sorely disappointed. What does come out is the intensity, the rawness, and the emotion. Like most "Best of" releases it's pretty uneven, but that's rather the point, isn't it? I'm ... more

I had decided I was finished with this silly back-and-forth, but since you decided to pile on.... So, Dusty Chalk - you admit you have no experience in this area, have never been in a recording studio, but you feel comfortable in telling me I'm wrong. Seems to me there are two discrete groups of people who know everything about everything without ... more

Again you take something completely out of context. Oh well. I see that you can't help it. Where did I learn this? In the studio, by doing it. It is a natural result of mixing down an ANALOG multi-track, which happens to be how many, if not most pop/rock recordings done prior to the mid 1980s were recorded. I'm well aware that mixing digitally ... more

You make me laugh! You really, should have done as I suggested in my previous post, instead of plowing ahead and further embarrassing yourself. Just FYI, I did not call any poster in this thread pathetically sad, despite your protestations. Your reading comprehension truly sucks. You certainly don't need to try to justify yourself to me - ... more

Yes, you took a cheap shot at Tony Cousins, and attempted to bolster it with claims of being an industry professional. You still haven't offered anything in the way of credibility to back up your position. Tony Cousins is a well-respected professional, with an impressive resume and a long list of well-known recordings by major artists under his ... more

A recording engineer? Gee, that's so nice for you. I see that you're quite humble about it. FYI, you aren't the only one here (if you really are anything more that some guy with a hard disk recording setup in his basement). You do seem to be the only one who knows everything about everything, though. You've taken an impressive amount of cheap ... more
