Hi everyone !
I recieved my boxset today, I reall looked forward to it , I waited along time and bought it at the very last moment.
Very well packed in a large box size of a mini tower pc and when opening it I believed they made a mistake , it's huge and it is real.
A personaly sign paper with number from Ernst and on the back of the box again a number printed .. not in the book or CD book.
Dying to hear the impressive sound and being really crazy about 1969, I pulled out the original albums and the cds I have to compare.
Which are :
The complete masters disc 17 and 18
First release of the vinyl album from Elvis in Memphis and Back in Memphis.
The Japanees 24 Bit masterings
And for fun also the Legacy edition of From Elvis in Memphis.
I skipped the others since they are all less than the aboved mentioned
Funny enough the tracks sound better on the boxset compared to the Legacy edition of FEIM , I expected to be equal..
But the 24 Bit from Japan are better getting the same feeling with the original vinyl sound, What I hear on the original albums is a vibrant alive sound
, the same songs, It sounds borring the complete masters box set.
I didn't read the book yet but it looks very deluxe but nothing special borring, best photos in it are the various mike shots and mixing desks, that really looks cool. printing itself is not great.
So far I'm not impressed with the sound indeed the Lene Reidel bonus discs you can ignore it is nothing special.
I trust the fact that they can't be all less ..
