Product Description

The 1978 movie FM tells the story of DJs battling to preserve the soul of their radio station in L. A. Produced by Gary Katz, the OST is a collection of classic rock by groups such as Steely Dan, Eagles, Foreigner, Queen and the Doobie Brothers.

Deluxe Vinyl Replicas by Culture Factory constitute high quality reissued compact-discs which reproduce all the components of the original LPs and are their exact replicas in compact-disc size (5.3 x 5.3 inches), with authentic single or gatefold cardboard jackets and paper sleeves. In addition to the above, each compact-disc Deluxe Vinyl Replica includes a black finish CD complete with the original label to give it the look and feel of the original record album. Culture Factory strives to achieve an authentic sound with the highest possible fidelity to the original studio masters. Our remastering process brings out the music's true dynamics and original clarity with low levels of noise. In the remastering studio the audio tracks are handled in the form of high-definition, 96Kz / 24-bit digital files for greatest preservation of fidelity. Signal compression is sometimes used to bring out frequencies that were absent or barely heard in the original recordings, and we use the least amount of compression possible. While sound perception varies greatly among individuals our vinyl replica CDs are designed to provide the optimal listening experience when using flat EQ settings. Brand new, original, factory-sealed, limited edition CD release.

Truly amazing! The attention to detail, the remastering, the overall packaging-- I've never seen anything this complete or as well done EVER. Greatest CDs ever. 10+, five stars, all walk-off grand slams! --Gary Moore, 95.5KLOS-FM

Format: Audio CD
This is the second Culture Factory disc I've bought, the first being Moon Martin's "Escape From Domination". I was horrified at the tinny, transistor radio-like sound quality of that disc, but after reading polarized reviews of their later discs, I thought I'd give this "FM" soundtrack reissue a try. After all, Steely Dan would be a great test of sound quality, wouldn't it?

Well, it failed miserably. "FM (No Static At All)" and "Do It Again" (and the rest of the music) are VERY LOUD and distorted.

To add insult to injury, Gary Katz's name is on the disc labels as "Mastered by Gary Katz". Uh, NO. Just because he mastered the original release back in '78 meant Culture Factory put his original credit on these CDs as a way of replicating the original release. But I feel this is very misleading, as any Steely Dan fan would know Gary Katz wouldn't have mastered such an abomination.

I will say the cover is done well with stiff, thick cardboard, with the original generic MCA inner sleeves done nicely. My only beef is the FM logo on the front cover isn't replicated in silver foil; even the earlier CD reissue did this for its cover.

Like I said in my review of the Moon Martin disc, I cannot recommend any Culture Factory reissue, unless you want a really nice cover and a really nice drink coaster.

I have waited years for this CD. I had the LP and loved it, so it's only natural that I'dorder this. Listening to a young Linda Ronstadt, Tom Petty, Foreigner, Doobie Brothers, Billy Joel, Steely Dan, James Taylor, etc. is like meeting up with old friends.
It's definitely worth the money.

I remember a friend of my mom had this LP when it first came out. I always wanted a copy of this because it has a representation of all the rock artist that were hot in 1978.
