*****2012 UM release****,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Joe's Garage Acts I, II & III (Audio CD)
The original Ryko version of this cd was very good quality, so I hesitated before buying the latest version. As it says on the back it is remastered from the original analogue master tape. This means that like on the other Zappa cds remastered from analogue, this double has the added reverb removed from the mix. This gives the vocals more immediacy and presence. The difference is noticeable espacially in the drum sounds. Way morerealistic and thumping, I probably could have saved my money, but if you are a Zappaphiliac you will certainly like this, it no longer sounds thin in any way and the treble is not hissy.

Apparently Frank was loosing his upper range hearing and like Jimmy Page before him, he boosted the treble so it sounded better to him, worse to dogs and us lol
