I am a big fan of Repertoire and their approach to music. As far as sound is concerned they can take music to parts that some labels fail to reach. The mastering on the Wishbone Ash 4cd compilation Distilation for eg' which came out in 97 is superb and highlights just how bad Universals 2002 remaster of Argus really is.
Anyway, if you haven't heard this album before, on first listening to this cd it might sound fairly impressive, but it simply does not sound like the original vinyl which i have been listening too for the best part of thirty five years. It is not much different to Snappers early 2000 release which was released in conjunction with Rocka Rolla and both together as a double cd entitled Genocide. This is mastered a bit louder. It might sound brighter but thats because it seems to have been mastered without any noise limitation on the tape. It basically feels like playing a cassette without the dolby on, thereby losing the warmth of the original recording and making it feel like a cold icy blast.Repertoire also released Sad Wings and Rocka Rola back in the ninties but i have not heard those editions.
The best cd of this album and Rocka Rolla that i have heard[which with this edition has a slight editing error with the title Deep Freeze coming in before the track Winter has finished] is the 1991 castle compilation 'The Collection' which if you turn your amp up to match the loudness of this edition you will find has no loud audible tape hiss and a sound that matches the warmth of the original vinyl,making it feel like you are in front of a log fire with a nice glass of red wine,which is how it should sound.
The Collection is available for less than two quid but omits Caviar And Meths from Rocka Rolla, but even though its over twenty years old it is still the only one i have heard that comes close to the original vinyl.

One of the most important gothic heavy metal releases of all time. Mastery of contrast between light and dark, melodic and cacaphonic, subtle and bludgeoning. Rocks harder than just about any other record released in 1976. Blew minds when it first came out, and revered by the likes of Metallica/etc. etc. Nuff said, been said before. I'm here to talk about the Repertoire Records re-issue of this classic album. It sounds like it is supposed to!!!

Up until recently, the only compact disc version of this album was on the Koch Records label. If you've ever owned the original vinyl (on the Gull label), then later got a Koch copy on cd, then you know that the Koch cd muffles the mastery of this record, and makes it sound like you are listening to it with marshmallows in your ears. Unconscionable! And Gull, while giving Koch license to release this album on cd, has thus far refused to relinquish the rights to the band, which is apparently why Judas Priest has, in recent years, somewhat disassociated itself from Sad Wings Of Destiny. That is like a father shutting the door against his number one son and telling him he's no more than some red-headed stepchild. Highly remiss!

Repertoire is a label dedicated to the preservation and transfer of classic 1960's and 1970's records to modern format. Without knowing about them, I recently bought a Pat Travers anthology ("Rock Solid: The Essential Collection") on cd and was impressed by the packaging, and hella impressed by the sound. And Repertoire has restored Sad Wings Of Destiny to it's deserved glory with a most desperately needed re-mastering.
