5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sound Quality At Last, 7 Oct. 2011
By 
This review is from: Starsailor: The Anthology (Audio CD)
Many Thanks, Rhino and Music Club, I don't know who you got in to do the remastering on this wonderful two disc compilation as the sleeve notes are a bit sparse and they contain a few glaring innaccuracies but the sound quality is superb on every track. It has taken a long time to do this incredible artist justice on the digital front but we are finally getting there. Every song now sounds almost as deep and as high as the vinyl records ever did. Truly spellbinding stuff. Spare ten minutes of your precious time and listen to the remastered 'Lorca', nobody else sings that good, nobody! Now we can look forward to all of the best ever Singer-Songwriter's Music, Tim Buckley of course, to be released on CD, including the 1970 Starsailor Band Concerts and that 1967 Gem 'Lady Give Me Your Key'. Make it soon though, we ain't any of us getting any younger

It looks like an excellent and generous compilation, but I've got all the original CDs and I have no problems with their sound quality.

Let's hope the long-unavailable Starsailor album gets a proper release now.

I didn't realise it was deleted again!
In the Seventies Blue Afternoon had even greater mythical status than Starsailor because it was rarer (I had two copies of Starsailor on vinyl, neither of which was in a very playable condition). When everything was released on CD, Blue Afternoon was a disappointment after our expectations had been aroused so much, lol! Same experience with Beefheart's Decals, but unfortunately I never did jump in and buy the CD of that one when it first came out.

I didn't have a problem with the original CD sound quality either... till I heard this. The difference is quite jaw-dropping.
