Bad editing spoils lost masterpiece,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Fried (Audio CD)
Was a little disappointed with this not for the actual sound of the cd which is good because one of the problems with the original cd release is the low volume of the recordings you really have to turn it up loud to hear it ,not so for this release though tracks like Bill Drummond said and Sunspots stand out more crisply my only two gripes are the terrible editing some tracks are just chopped off before they get to the end why spend time doing a remaster then allow that to be on the final recording?is that just plain laziness or incompetence?and my other complaint is the lack of the original art work some great pictures of Julian crouched under his shell are missing here the original sleeve booklet could have been included aswell they could have done real justice to this album like they have done with the new release of Saint Julian which has an extra cd included,but in summary it is worth buying for the three bonus tracks,Fried is a timeless album when played to a variety of younger friends none of them could place a correct date on when it was made that is an enduring quality i just wished this remastered album could have been the treatment it truly deserves,properly edited songs and an extra cd of Julian rarities plus original photos,not enough turtle pics!!

Phew - all one sentence, makes it difficult to get your points across. Need to pause for breath occasionally you know!
