Sounds great, read some reviews (just a view) that weren't exactly positive, but I must say that I disagree: packaging and sound are great.
Very pleased with the mastering job on these, especially on Stink. Original pressing had some thinner sounding bass parts, and everything seems to be thickened up a little bit without sacrificing energy, or the intention of the band.
#1288 accounted for
my boxset casing has a smudged-out number. Did this happen to anyone else or just me? Seems fitting
So is it true that there can never be a repress of Let It Be from the original master tapes because Westerberg and co. destroyed them? I'm just trying to figure out if it's worth shelling out for this boxset.
That's a great book, read it more than a few times over the years.
No. The tapes that they threw into the river were copies of them. (That fact was reviled in Michael Azerad's book, "Our Band Could Be Your Life")
These are really great to have now that my original copies have become too valuable to play. For that reason alone, I love this thing! They sound pretty good, too!
Can we treat these as individual albums on Discogs or only as this boxset?
These sound really nice, but keep in mind these are definitely taken from the 2008 digital remasters. The editing mistakes that were present on those are present on these. (No count in on Answering Machine, sound dropout on the intro of White and Lazy, etc.). The price is unbeatable though... I would say it's worth it if you don't own original pressings and don't feel like shelling out $70 for minty originals when you can just get all four for the same price.
I'm with you. This whole boxed set is cheaper to replace than any one of my other twin/tone originals. I love this boxed set. Like you said, they sound good.
Pressing quality seems to be good. I thought I heard a couple loud pops in the mastering on Sorry Ma, but after closer inspection and cleaning the disc, it seems to be totally fine. I'm glad to have these records in print on vinyl again for a reasonable price!
Can anyone comment on how this boxset sounds?
Top notch...better than the better half bought this for me for my birthday, best gift EVER...she rules and knows me too well!!!
yes!! sounds amazing. loud and the layers are there. Bob Stinson's guitar never sounded so good
Sounds awesome! Listening to them right now and in my opinion the sound quality is fantastic. Very pleased with my purchase.
