Product Description

Mistaken Identity is the breakout album by Kim Carnes that established her as a unique and important solo artist. It includes the Grammy award-winning "Bette Davis Eyes" which was one of the biggest Top Forty hits of the 1980's.

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.

2012 remastered vinyl replica edition of Kim Carnes' platinum selling album from 1981. Includes one of the biggest and best selling Billboard #1 hits of the 80s, 'Bette Davis Eyes', along with its two follow up singles, 'Draw of the Cards' (a Top 30 hit) and 'Mistaken Identity'.

I have the 1991 CD release which sounded good (but wasn't remastered) and I've re-purchased this and the sound quality is nothing less than perfect. The label have done a great job with both the mastering and packaging-- soundwise, it's a 5 out of 5. My only negative comment relates to the lame copy on the album cover: describing 'Bette Davis Eyes' as ''one of the biggest Top 40 hits of the 1980s'' is surely an understatement: it was one of the biggest and longest running No. 1's of the 1980s so why hold back from describing what it really was? This wasn't her ''breakout'' album either, her previous one ('Romance Dance') charted and produced a Top 10 single. There's also a grammatical mistake on the cover- you go through a 24-bit remaster from source, you beautifully restore the artwork, then you mess up the copy on the cover? I almost couldn't believe it when I saw it. (I must have an initial/early pressing though as this error doesn't appear in the version pictured on the Amazon product page...).

Kim Carnes has released better and more cohesive albums than this but this will be the one she will be remembered by for obvious reasons; the re-release is a welcome addition for both die-hard fans and probably beyond. On the basis of how good this looks/sounds, I'm definitely going to buy Culture Factory's other Carnes releases.

The best remastered sound that I heard. It's better than HMCD produced in Japan

Kim Carnes is wonderful and this CD is an icon in the 70s.

This album is seen as the highwater mark of Kim Carnes' career. An indeed it is. Here she found a "formula" that was used to great effect on coming albums. Carnes is equally adept at ballads as well as harder rocking stuff. "Bette Davis Eyes" may very well be the only song that most people can relate to Kim Carnes, and she didn't even write it herself! But Carnes is a great songwriter which she has proved many times, often cowriting with her husband Dave Ellingson.

The remastering by Culture Factory is a great improvement over the original CD release and LP.

Kim Carnes’ “Mistaken Identity”, released in 1981, was the blockbuster that Kim Carnes was looking for. Led by “Bette Davis Eyes”, which became one of the biggest hits of the rock era, “Mistaken Identity” went on to hit #1 on the Billboard Album Charts and went multi-platinum all on the strength of “Bette Davis Eyes”. However, the remainder of the album is a mixed bag. Carnes distinctive raspy voice is in fine shape, as is Carnes song writing skills. Her band is also top notch and each song displays solid musicianship but the material itself runs hot and cold. “Hit And Run” is a fun sing along rocker as is “When I’m Away From You”. “Break The Rules Tonight (Out Of School)” and “Don’t Call It Love” follow in the similar path, though are both more of mid-tempo rockers. However, EMI misguidedly released the futuristic and synthesizer driven “Draw Of The Cards” as a follow up single to the multi platinum smash “Bette Davis Eyes” and instead of getting another Top 10 smash, the single stalled at #28 on the Top 100 Billboard chart. As a result, the haunting title track, belatedly released as the third and final single stalled at #60, which is a crime. “Mistaken Identity” is a beautiful ballad, reminiscent of Carnes later stunning balladry that she was so good at. There was no reason why production genius Val Garay, who produced “Mistaken Identity”, did not come up with a follow up smash to “Bette Davis Eyes” off this album.

Kim Carnes’ voice is her greatest strength. It’s an instrument that she uses to convey every emotion. Just listen to “Still Hold On”. A chillingly beautiful soft rock ballad that should have been an across the board smash but was never released as a single. “Miss You Tonight” is just as aching and heartfelt and album closer “My Old Pals” also hits home.
