Wow. Its about time they got one right. Perfect sonically mixed tracks and track list lacks
no great Sylvester masterpiece. I immediately noticed a huge difference with this vs some other
old cds I had over the years. This is more bass and mid range perfection. Nothing missing, nothing added.
This isn't the tinny, clanky sounds that some remasters deliver, but its far more flat and heavy, which are good
adjectives for listening to music with a purists ear like mine. When 'Sing a Simple Song' came on, I about wrecked
the damn car! It was SO awesome. And Runnin Away remains one of my favorites. Some folks like to banter
about with mixes by Prince or Michael Jackson, which are noteworthy artists, but I believe now without a doubt that Prince
didn't just form out of nothing in all his skills (musically or production-wise). I think he looked back at this heavy cat and realized he could (and
should) copy some of his mojo and take it a different direction. You can hear Prince borrowing from Sly quite a bit in fact.
But it all started here, -and Mr James Brown of course. Cheers!
