Anyone have "More Rock & Roll Rarities"? Was there a third set as well? Yes. No. I haven't listened to the "Rarities" CDs in ages since I am not that interested in remixes. The demo versions are great though. The Great Twenty-Eight is my exclusive choice for Chuck Berry...do...

Well, I have them. But they are all from n-th generation CDR copies, and we do know that quality degrades that way...

Favorite? The Guess I'm Dumb sessions.

Wasn't the remaster done by Kevin Reeves? He is not exactly known for staying close to the sound of the tapes. I think the original 2CD set sounds very similar to the old Innervisions of Fulfillingness First Finale CD. Somewhat dull, but not veiled or midrangey or bassy. The use or non-use of Dolby ...

Re: The groping/grabbing incident. Was that sexual molestation? The photo and video was of course omnipresent in German media as well, mostly with a ironic undertone, implying that Bush doesn't know how to behave, has bad manners, and makes himself ridiculous. (sidenote: Bush is rather unpopular in ...

Hound Dog 3 - huh? Terrible. No high end, and the mids really stick out. That one song really sticks out as an exception...by far the biggest difference. It seems like it was sourced from an equalized tape copy on which only some midrange was left. Some commented on sh.tv that it sounded just like ...
