What does it sound like?:
Fans will be aware that the audio elements of the 50th anniversary box set from earlier in the year are now being made available individually and at a far more reasonable price. The bluray was the obvious pick of the bunch, including as it does the Dolby Atmos mix, a 5.1 surround mix and a remastered stereo mix, all wrapped up in a very nice new look sleeve. I won’t go through the songs, as we all know them off by heart by now, but suffice to say the sound lived up 100% to my already sky high expectations. The clarity and detail are absolutely stunning, and I write that as someone who‘s heard this record literally thousands of times over the past five decades. If you have the sound system that can handle these formats, then even if you don’t really need yet another copy of the album this is still an indispensable purchase, and at the price it’s an absolute steal.
What does it all *mean*?
I recall when the album was originally released in 1973 it used to be the go to record for hifi dealers to demonstrate the prowess of their equipment – this version will undoubtedly fulfil the same role for the very latest systems.
