2016 rematser is astonishingly sonic improvement WOW!
on 23 November 2016
Those familiar with this album will already know a) this was ELP at thier peak live B) the recording was thin and muddy sounding. Well this 2016 remaster has vastly improved the sound. The music has punch clarity and hugely better EQ. Still there are moments where you feel you are at the back of the auditorium due to the reverb particularly on Greg Lakes vocal, but this no longer is an issue as the sound is just so much clearer. Toccata sounds violently terrifying and Tarkus never sounded better. Haven't played disc two for BSS yet but wanted to let anyone know who was in two minds as to whether to get the 3rd remaster in 10 years, yes do it is far better than any previous version by a long way.
