    Way back in 2003 (I think it was), I bought the Japanese release of Sergio Mendes' LOVE MUSIC. Today I had occasion to listen to a track or two and think it sounds pretty bad. There's lots of distortion on the louder vocal passages.

    Has there ever been a better release than this Japanese Arista/BMG release on CD? Anyone know?

    Not to my knowledge I never was able to get a cd copy of it but I had needledrop cds made from my clean vinyl copy of Love music and it sounds very good sometimes some cd reissues don't do an album justice sadly I usually go by my gut feeling about whether some cd reissues are important enough especially imports They better sound good or I won't bother spending the money for it

    Somehow I got ahold of the set of files for a 2008 (?) release from Sony/BMG. No clue as to what it sounds like. Booklet claims from "original master" tapes but that could mean anything. :shrug:

    I have a couple of releases. Don't recall hearing whatever Harry didn't like on the BMG (haven't listened in a long time, though), but there's another release that comes in one of those cardboard ecocases that I believe originated in the Philippines IIRC.
