Stuff We Sell

The easiest way to describe the difference between the original and this is the difference between hearing mono and stereo.

The music's powerful on both, but the repress is much fuller and surprisingly clear, with nothing getting in the way of itself. I hear lines from Chris and Henry that aren't evident on the original. The download card with extra songs was a nice touch.

I just got it!!! Sounds AMAZING! I own both original vinyl and cd, this reissue sounds so clear. Haskett's guitar playing is stellar.

This is indeed a killer record and an awesome pressing. I also have a solid original pressing and this one kills it. Much better mastering job! PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do the rest of them. At least the Texas Hotel stuff. The Imago years if you can get the rights would also be amazing.

The pic on the back of the sleeve of the guys in the studio is priceless! Terrific reissue!

@Jeffrey: on second reading, i think you are correct that the live tracks will be included with download, not on the vinyl lp. thanks for pointing that out. however like you, i think the remaster has me interested enough to make the purchase. i would love to see them do the same thing with "hot animal machine."

Whoops, I see Henry has a nice remastered CD version with the live tracks on his own website. I just ordered it.

No remastered CD? Too bad.

@David: The listing makes it sound like the live tracks are only with the download, but I could be reading that wrong (and and it looks like the DL is missing "(Hank's Story)" from the CD, but that may be folded into one of the other tracks). Still, the remaster on the album has me many things I own multiple copies of, but this is one of Rollins' that I play the most...

Weird because I was just walkin' alone down Sunset Blvd. Feeling lonely, feeling mean, feeling hard...

this is such a killer record. i am glad for the reissue. i have a fairly solid first-press, so the question is "do i buy the repress?" the live tracks are solid - i've heard them on the cd. they'll sound good on vinyl. ugh... what to do? GOOD CHOICE OF REISSUE.
