Excellent mixes ruined by poor mastering
on 27 September 2010
I'll start off by admitting that I am a big Tom Moulton fan, from his classic early work to his newer mixes of both classic tracks and the occasional new track. And his work here is as good as ever - each tune clearly mixed with love and respect. "Jay" and "Music Lover" have done some excellent reviews here, so won't go in to any more detail abou the fantastic tunes.
But the sound is APPALLING - all midrange and distorted, with little bass. I'm surprised that none of the other reviewers have mentioned how bad it is (and I would be interested in anyone elses feed back on the sound quality). I have many of these tracks (in their original mixes) on other CD's and vinyl and every one of them sounds far better quality than on this CD.
How did this get past quality control? Tom Moulton must be very disapointed to have his work handled in this way.
As much as I love these mixes, as a professional DJ I could never play any of these tracks out.
Such a pity. I just hope they get around to remastering it.
I also have Dimitri's "Get Down With The Philly Sound" which is a double album of similar material and that sounds extremely good.
