4.0 out of 5 stars Almost the perfect deluxe treatment., 2 April 2011
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: John Barleycorn Must Die (Audio CD)
I got the original vinyl of this a couple of years ago and its good to hear that this Deluxe CD Edition tries hard to keep close to the warmth,rhythm and space of the original analogue sound, allowing the songs to breath and groove without any hint of digital compression.
So why only 4 stars then?
Well the problem is the second disc.
The various alternate takes are well worth a listen but at the expense of the full track listing from one of the 2 Fillmore East shows? I think not.
These shows are easily available and have superb sound quality -see Wolfgang's Vault to listen- and are always more interesting to fans than a slightly different take on familiar songs.Indeed,the improvisations and jams during Traffic live shows were surely one of the defining features of the band.
But yet again, unearthing rehearsals or alternate takes is the preferred option for the record company types who must source a lot of these so called "extras" e.g
the complete waste of space that the recent Rainbow and Queen re-issues represent.
This is much, much better than those but would have been perfect with a complete Fillmore Set!
