HITSTORY - U.S. version a complete remaster or partial?

Fri Oct 14, 2005 4:08 pm

The other thread mentions some sound corrections on the E1 disc of hit story.

Are all tracks new transfers and remasters on the U.S. hitstory? Or just some?

In other words, is all of benedeth's crappy work finally expunged, or just some?

Is the distortion on Can't Help Falling in Love gone?

Here's a review on amazon by an audiophile enthusiast, that should answer your question:

Hitstory rewrites gaffes from Elvis 30 #1s, October 22, 2005

Reviewer: Brian O'Marra - See all my reviews

To clarify previous reviews...this is not "Nothing New." The first one disc comp 30 #1s presented alternate versions of A Big Hunk o' Love, A Fool Such As I, and The Wonder of You. On top of that all stereo songs were remixed. Suspicious Minds has been subjected to flanging.

Now in gathering the two CDs (the above mentioned 30 #1s and 2nd to None) the correct versions are used and not remixed. Vic Anesini did a wonderful job on this! The third disc gathers 19 additional top twenty singles.

The title Hitstory is earned on an 80 songs comp that delivers the hit singles!
