Japanese CP35-3016 Toshiba-EMI Abbey Road

(1/2) > >>

I just rediscovered this CD.

I had forgotten how wonderful this sounds. Anyone else have a copy? How do you think it sounds in comparison to the new remaster?

I guess nobody has this...

It is a flat transfer. It sounds so good, as I stated before. I am thinking the new remaster sounds better as a whole, but it sounds better in that it is not mastered as loud.

It is a pricey purchase, but if you ever get a chance to pick one up, I would highly recommend it. You will not be sorry.

I heard a lot of good stories about the Japanese stuff, but I have never been able to get my hands on it.
