I only became aware last week that this album was being released.Despite possessing "Rock of Ages",thought "what the hell,give it a go".
Glad I did so.This is a stunning mix by Bob Clearmountain,whoever he is.Never heard of him,but what a job he has done.
New life has been breathed into these songs.Voices and instruments are crystal clear.Levon Helms' drumming,in particular, is crisper,and the "high end" is high ! That was first thing that struck me,but the sheer musicality of these recordings has had a light shone upon it.
Like a fog has lifted.
Buy it,bin "Rock of Ages" and enjoy.
Time for a beer and another listen !
