How is it James? I’ve read somewhere that the tapes were found sealed in their boxes. The recording was in both mono and stereo and in excellent condition. But someone decided to use some newly developed software to bring her voice forward and fill out the bass! :shock:

Yes definitely an album that will grow as you play it. I think the girl vocalist is Gail Ann Dorsey, need to check that out. The downside of downloads is you rarely get the booklet.
Listening to a world beating hi-fi and world beating music (when it’s British).

Was thinking that myself is it a cash in on the fans. I’ve got the original album which is great. Same with the remaining Pink Floyd members if they’ve got nothing new just leave it. 8)
I think I would spend the money elsewhere to be honest.

I noticed that Ellas voice was more forward in the mix than I expected right from the first note, but very soon it felt natural. I can not say that I noticed the bass at all, so I guess thats not a problem.

The only thing I would question was the audience applause. It was very much of its time (crackly cellophane/log fire) which is OK and as expected but was out of place with the way that her voice now was.

Performance is of course fantastic. Overall I'd give it a recommended 8/10

I’ve got her debut album and it’s great. She is a brilliant bass player and was in Bowie touring band. Her duet with him doing “Under Pressure” is superb. Have a look below
