Does anyone know if this reissue came from the original master tapes? What are your thoughts on this reissue so far? thanks
Road.to sliver
I really wish they’d included the bonus tracks found on the CD. This album is useless without Bird of Prey.
Dynen
Anyone else get a copy where some of the tracks sound distorted, when Morrison is talking and the music gets loud?
Coron
Correct. At some points where there is music in the background the voice sounds distorted. But in general sound is good and the record creates a great atmosphere...
