Incredible sound upgrade,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Aorta (Audio CD)
In 1968 I saw this LP in the display window at The Hub and bought it for the cover alone. I knew it had to be heavy. When I put it on the turntable I was not disappointed. This is vintage psychodelia. The vocals are reminiscent of Vanilla Fudge, the guitar is fuzz-soaked and crosstracks like a mother. There are weird sound effects that link each of the tracks together and the audio production is top notch. As the years progressed I continued to pull this beauty out and relive the magic. However, after 37 years the LP has shown signs of aging. I was so happy to see this finally available on CD. I read some reviews about the abysmal sound quality of the German release. Then I read a review recommending the Alcinous Ltd release from Greece. I took a chance and I'm glad I did. The audio quality is top notch. I am hearing things that I never heard before. The separation and clarity of the mix are excellent. Additionally it was mastered at a high volume so the sonics are right in your face. This is a true unknown artifact of the long forgotten era. If you like your lyrics trippy and your music phased and dense and fuzzed out you are going to love this 40 minutes of pure late '60's bliss.
