I'm not an audiophile, but as someone who spends 2-3 hours a day in my car I'm quite pleased playing my CDs on the Bose system in there. For many years I've always taken at least one CD with me whenever I've test driven a car... usually A Trick of the Tail. cool

Interestingly, Trick is the album, either LP or CD, that I play to inaugurate any new piece of stereo equipment. So, one morning last week I grabbed the CD (original mix...I'm not a heathen) to play on my way to work. I must have sat in the driveway for about five minutes just listening to DOAV. It's always great hear a fresh sound from something so familiar. cool

I am super excited.

I have always wondered when they'd be doing this. I'm not sure how much improved the remasters of DITL and Testify could be, but hopefully they might all be mixed in 5.1 surround like the Genesis albums. I'd love to hear songs like Hand In Hand, The West Side, Take Me Home, Wish it would Rain, and Lorenzo in surround sound! (Just wishful thinking probably.)

I have the audio fidelity versions, but IMO only certain songs on Face Value and the majority of ...But seriously had any obvious improvement. I am excited to see what improvements these remasters bring. Not to mention the excitement of getting some bonus material-perhaps even songs I've never heard before (or at least don't have a very good quality copy of). I'm also excited to see what kind of packaging they come with....

Either way, I'd imagine these remasters would be similar to when Peter Gabriel reissued all of his catalogue. And the remasters vastly improved the sound quality of those albums-not to mention the new packaging was great. If these PC remasters are anything like those reissues-along with unreleased bonus material, then I think we're in for something great...


Testify could definitely be improved. Fixed would probably be the better word for it. Listened to it today, it's a horrible example of brickwall mastering.

The current Rolling Stone interview with Tony has an interesting statement from Tony's regarding himself and Mike singing on their albums:

Quote:
RS: The first time I listened to The Fugitive, I was struck by the strength of your voice and how accessible it is. I know you wanted to work with other singers for creative reasons, but do you feel like you weren't confident enough to tackle more of it yourself?

Tony: I can hold a melody, but I don't rate myself as a singer at all. When I did the record, I was quite happy to sing it, and I thought it worked quite well at times. Then there's everything else involved with being a singer: You have to front the project, do the videos and come across in a certain way that isn't really comfortable for me. I worked with Peter and Phil, who became so good at it. Peter was a shy boy like me when he first started, but he found a way of coping with it all, and he did it really well. Maybe if it was a massive success, it would have changed my attitude toward it. I kind of wasn't aiming to be a singer; in many ways, I wasn't aiming to be a player. I really just wanted to be a writer, so I wanted to be behind it a bit.

People either liked my voice or didn't. Mike was always so rude about my voice [laughs]. He did his own singing on his record at that time [1982's Acting Very Strange], and he wasn't very happy about how his voice sounded. It doesn't come across that brilliantly, I don't think. I think he regretted it, and I understand his point of view. If you don't know me, my voice sounds better than if you know me. And if you don't speak English, you hear it in a different way. But it was fun for me. I went back to my favorite singers, like John Lennon, so you have a bit of that sneering in there. My voice is a bit more Al Stewart than that, so you work with what you have and try to make more of it. There's something about a singer singing his own songs: a sort of genuineness that comes across. It also taught me a lot about writing.
