New album now available on Amazon March 23rd.
I agree when I ripped it to my computer I omitted everything after the mono mix of Acapulco 1922 and I agree The Latest Lonely Bull remaster is the definitive version which is why I mentioned adding the album tracks was unnecessary and redundantI got ahold of a download of this CD and to be honest, it doesn't sound all that bad. Even though it misses a few tracks, it has enough of these rarities that it's worthwhile to pick up. Ignore the Lonely Bull tracks though--the latest remaster is the definitive version and this one won't hold a candle to it. (But at least as a download, I can delete the extra tracks and keep the rarities.)
For the simpletons like me, precisely which remaster would that be? A date, perhaps, or a link to said album? Thanks.... I agree The Latest Lonely Bull remaster is the definitive version which is why I mentioned adding the album tracks was unnecessary and redundant
Thanks for the clarification, Rudy!The most recent, remastered by Randy Badazz. As long as the issuing label is Herb Alpert Presents, that would be the title to get.
Nope, not a bad thing at all. These recordings have all languished in the dustbin of history, so by having this UK outfit do the dirty work of finding these tracks and compiling them is indeed a good thing. The copyright of all of this stuff is expired in the UK, so that's why it could be issued legally over there.The thing that surprises me the most is that Jasmine Records is a UK outfit. I would have expected a USA company to be at the forefront of issuing something like this, but, as alluded to earlier in this thread, maybe there are grey areas of the law to be considered. Having had a look at Jamine's website (www.jasmine-records.co.uk), I have no concerns about illegality, but I am not a copyright expert.
I am just personally pleased that someone has taken on the release, allowing fans and completists access to the music without them having to spend a fortune searching for, and collecting (battered) originals. Is that really such a bad thing?
