The Wounded Bird CD release (WOU 8167) sounds quite good and is an improvement over my LP from 1976 so I'm happy I decided to get it. I figured the CD would be a hack remaster but I was surprised by how good it sounds. Perhaps they had access to a good quality master to transfer from. The CD packaging is missing the color handwritten lyric insert that the original record had with it (it would be un-readable in CD size) as well as the artwork on the label of the LP which was a variation on the sleeve painting by Henry Hodgson which happily is included in the CD insert. Of course everything is smaller and the info and photos of the musicians are so small you can't really see much. This is a minor issue that is unfortunately par for the course of the CD format. Recommended for those wanting an upgrade on their LP or for Yes fans that might want to explore some different sounds or for anyone that likes good music regardless of genre.
An interesting footnote is that Phil Hardiman is listed as second engineer on these sessions. Hardiman later went on to engineer the Advision and Odyssey (where the majority of "Ramshackled" was recorded) studio sessions and was head engineer on final mix for all the tracks of Kate Bush's masterpiece, "The Dreaming".
The first impression when you start playing the record is that a very groovy thing is happening, as long as the record goes, the poweful drum sound get heavier and heavier, leaving behind the high end Yes sound to become a real easy going album.
But then you get to the "Song of innocence", a beautiful song sung by Jon Anderson, the kind of song that is very familiar to any Yes fan, and the voice of Anderson it's at it's best, very soaring melody with soft lyrics, simply beautiful.
This album is perfect for everyone, you dont have to be a yes fan to enjoy or to apreciate the work o one of the best drummers in Rock, without a question, highly recommended album.
I mainly got this cd because of the rarity of the album. White has good players,but the band really did not reach their "mark". As compared to Howe,Squire,Moraz, even Anderson's. (Which took a long time to listen to) White's Cd has to grow on you. Get for the collection, you may not see it again! White's drumming is always consistant,but the rest of the musician sound like they are really making an effort to sound good.Go to you tube,judge this yourself.
But again get it!
