I am like you, I read reviews before purchasing a product, so I purchased this digital recording with trepidation. There are negative reviews, so I was worried about what I was going to get. One reviewer claimed the CD was mastered from a worn out vinyl copy, with hissing and popping to boot. Not true.
The copy I received is very good. It is crystal clear, and I mean CRYSTAL CLEAR. There is no hissing or popping; just pure music. I've always felt that the original vinyl had the high end boosted up a bit, and this digital copy is no exception. I think the digital CD sounds true to the spirit of the original vinyl. I believe Jon likes his solo albums this way; take his other great album for example, 'In the City of Angels'. The mixing quality is just like this one, but I think that's Jon's own taste and no one else's. Besides, if you don't like the high-end aspects in the tracks, you can equalize it differently.
As for the people who purchased those strange sounding copies, with the hissing and popping, I believe they may have been scammed. They may have purchased an unauthorized copy from scammers trying to make a buck off devoted Anderson fans. I'm sorry for them, but this is not Jon's fault. I received a great copy from a merchant on Amazon named 'best_music_service'. If you're going to purchased this album, you might as well get it from that reliable source, (if they're still selling it).
