Wow! This is how you do a remastered work!!
on 17 October 2013
There are a relatively few reissues that deliver any substantial improvements that warrant your purchase, again, again, and, again! This is the exception! Not only is the sound improved (a big deal to me), but, the additional material is nothing short of phenomenal. "Standing At The Station" is simply brilliant and highlights wonderful keyboard work from Chick Churchill. The Paris rendition of "Help Me" only shows how a band can approach a tune and give it a whole different feel on a different night. The Paris version smokes with a torrid intensity - one can only guess at the origin of "that" intensity! "I Woke Up This Morning" and "Sweet Little Sixteen" are wonderful additions; "Time is Flying" showcases a band still creating and willing to perform a new tune not fully developed; enlightening, nonetheless. The two Jams, however, are downright revealing of a tight-knit band taking us on a wonderful journey through their musical influences and creative processes. All four members of this great band shine through on the Jams, which, of themselves, showcase this band to be just that, a band! This was a great record before this reissue - now, it rivals anything out there! A must have! Thank you Alvin, Leo, Ric & Chick, Ten Years After.
