The fog has lifted !,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live At The Academy Of Music 1971 (Audio CD)
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 !

Just listened to 'I Shall Be Released'. It's even more beautiful with Richard's voice further forward in the mix. Just wonderful, and you can hear the efforts of the harmonies on the chorus. If only I had the time to play through the whole lot!
