Stage Struck Remastered 2013

Postby Dave Harmon » 26 Sep 2013, 11:55

I have bought a copy of Stage Struck Remastered 2013 on CD. This is my third version of this album i own. I chose the original vinyl ablum for my 8th Birthday in 1981, i bought the year 2000 CD issue. I have now bought the new remaster, as you tell i love this album. I think it is one of the best live albums out there. I have noticed that on the last track Shadow Play, the sound of the symbols and all high notes handled by the trebble control fade in and out every few seconds, through-out the song but gets worse towards the end. My original vinyl, nor the year 2000 CD version does this. Has any one else noticed this?? A shame as i find all of the other tracks are of top quality.

I also love this album, but I have the previous CD only. ShadowPlay actually ends fading which always annoyed me. Did they change that for the new remaster? Once I have this new version, I will let you know my thoughts. You might have received a faulty copy, mabye you should ask them to replace it.

Hi Shadow play does fade out after he says his thank you goodnight. It did on the original vinyl. On the new remaster if you listen for the percussion and high notes it just ever so slighty fades in and out throughout the track just getting more apparent towards the end. It is a bit like the orginal spool tape for this track was left too close to a magnetic field and has been dammaged. The other edditions dont do this. Obviously when you listen to a remastered disc you are looking for and enjoying the clarity. I must say on the rest of the album the quality is very good. The value of the Cd is great just wish the last track one of my favourites was as good quality.

From the blurb about stage struck on vinyl....

" incendiary riffs, groovy organ hooks and intense vocals"

that must be some remix.... groovy organ hooks from guitar, bass and drums.

:-o

I must admit, after receiving the remastered cd and comparing it to the older one, I much prefer the old one. The new one does have more clarity but at the expence of the ballsy warmth and in your face sonic force of the old, especially in regards to Ted's drums. The new version is too clean sounding to me. As a aside, I've always been unhappy with the song choices, where is Rory's great blues playing like "Off The Handle" or "Calling Card" to counter balance the more one dimensonal thrust of the hard rock sound of the album, or his nightly acoustic set like "OOTWP" or "Walking Blues". Anyway I guess I'm nitpicking, still though prefer the older mix. Peace.

While I agree in regards to the song choices - obviously a very conscious decision at the time to give the album a more hard-hitting direction - I definitely prefer the new remastered version of 'Stage Struck'. I've always had a dislike for how the first CD release sounded with the drums far too prominent in the mix and the overall flat, unnecessary bassy sound that threatened to bludgeon the listener into submission and was such a huge departure from 'Live in Europe' and 'Irish Tour'.
