Hi Folks! Wondering about earlier CD editions...

Post by b1daly » 06 Jul 2018, 03:06

Just popping in to say hi. I'm a long time fan...mostly the first four classic albums, though the Stranglers never did anything that was uninteresting.

I found this forum, as I am trying to figure out if CD copies of the early albums, released before the 96 remasters, are floating around out there, and if folks think they sound any better.

The remasters sound pretty terrible, though they still get the essence across. I grew up on the vinyl, and these new version lack the visceral satisfaction of the originals.

Cheers!
Brian

I had an early CD of Rattus. It wasn't good, the separation of the music tracks was too wide.

NOTHING can match the original vinyl, @ least in our lifetime. Even cassettes sound warmer than AAD CD's

When did the Old Testament box set come out? That was bloody exciting when it was released :smt006
'Peaches - A Chronicle of The Stranglers from 1974 to 1990', out 2014 on Soundcheck Books.

Think I'll go for a stroll in the trees.
