"This Japanese Blu-Spec CD2 Remaster Is A Revelation......"
on 29 March 2016
'JEFF BECK GROUP' aka 'THE ORANGE ALBUM' (from the picture of the titular fruit above the band's name) and it's predecessor 'ROUGH & READY' occasionally get a bad rap due to the sound quality of the original albums and ensuing CD's in later years. Sony Music Japan have now put that issue to rest with their Blu-Spec CD2 reissues. Although some of the original recording anomalies are present, both albums now sound clearer with much better definition. like different recordings. The Blu-Spec CD2 CD's play in regular CD players, it's just a new mastering algorithm based on Blu-Ray tech that increases sound quality. This version of Beck's band, Bob Tench (vocals), Max Middleton (piano), Clive Chaman (bass) and the late great Cozy Powell (drums) played a more down & dirty funky and soulful brand of rock, with Beck's guitar accompaniments weaving, stinging, and growling like a caged animal. There's no reason to pass these up any more......
