A good "remastering" can make such a difference to an original analogue recording. I was not always impressed with some of the earlier attempts to remove the snap, crackle, and pop from some albums, and in removing the analogue "hiss" they removed the soul of the music, and left it digitized and sterile.
Fortunately, things have got so much better. This is a stunning example of how to clean up a Great cd and turn it into Fantastic cd.
Sure, you still have the source limitations, but as I have the original release and now this one, you simply cant fail to hear the difference. Cleaner, brighter, and alive....
If you like Steve Hacket, this is one album you have to have. This version, is the ONLY one to have.
