4.0 out of 5 stars 2012 Remaster/Reissue Of 'Apostrophe (')', 29 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Apostrophe(') (Audio CD)
I'll refrain from burning your retinas out with a zillion-mile review of the music itself. Of that, I'm sure most visitors to this page will be aware of the contents of the album and have your own opinions of the merits therein. What is important is the question of how the new remaster sounds in comparison to the Ryko release of some 20 years ago. Well, to these ear-like shells, there isn't that much difference. The audio make-over isn't as noticeable as other FZ catalogue entries like 'Hot Rats'. 'Sheik Yerbouti', 'Zoot Allures' &c., so if you're happy with the Ryko edition, hang on to it.
The minus point to the 2012 reissue - and the reason why it's been deducted a star with this review - is the absence of the lyrics. They were there in the Ryko version, and it was very pleasant to have (Frank's wordplay was a joy to read). The excision of the songwords for whatever reason - the price of an extra few centimetres of inlay sheet? C'mon!!! - is a baffler and an annoyance.

Yes, I agree that the inclusion of the lyrics would have been a welcome addition to the packaging of this superb album - it certainly helped with the likes of 'Over-Nite Sensation' and 'One Size Fits All'.
