Brilliant album - biblicly bad remastering.,
This review is from: Rio Grande Mud (Audio CD)
This has to be one of the most upsetting purchases I have made. I have had a copy of Rio on cassette since I was 10 (that's 25 years), so have grown up listening to pure unadulterated TOP. When I started to listen to the CD I almost wept. How could someone do this to what was the best gritty dirty blues. That was part of TOP's appeal - they were earthy. The remastering has almost destroyed what is a brilliant album, and the songs are that good. Whoever reverbed the vocals on SURE GOT COLD should be publicly humiliated. To anyone who can buy a turntable and find it on vinyl, it will be worth it.
