4.0 out of 5 stars better than Yessongs...?, June 11 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Well, this is the debate; the remastered of those 1972 U.S.tour tapes
are more detail but lack of bass, and
Yessongs is less detail, but has more bass...on the other hand
the sound take are not the same at all and mixed differently too.

As for the songs in this "highlights from 72" is an overview of
the deluxe box set of 14 cd's that will be sold 100/1 because of the
price issue.

will I stop listening to my Yessongs Lp or cd...NO! but it's a nice
addition to those Yes concerts of that era (don't forget Yesshow too).

Tracklist;1) opening (Firebird suite), siberian khatru, i've seen all
good people, heart of the sunrise, clap/mood for a day, and you and I.

2)close to the edge, the six wifes of Henry VIII, roundabout, yours is
no disgrace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good for home replacement too..., May 10 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Great product for the price...I was sceptical at first to replace
my 1996 home hi-fi subwoofer speaker ( suspension was cracked and
dried up with time) it fits perfectly and sounds fantastic now!

Break in period is needed to low-medium volume before adding more
power (24-48 hours playing) this is requierd for long term reliability.

since it's desing for sub-woofer application, do not use it to replace
a woofer in a home stereo towers speakers; low frequency is not the same.

3.0 out of 5 stars almost..., Nov. 20 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: No Fixed Address (Audio CD)
a good Nickelback rock album with two very bad songs;
"she keep me up" & "got me runnin'round" pop and rap
don't belong here, maybe looking for new fan's but
probably loosing more real rock fan's overall.
please next time release a live album or fill it with
great classic rock covers instead...guess you learn by
your mistake. don't blow your next album; new producer,
back to basic and rock it!

3.0 out of 5 stars encore and encore..., Oct. 30 2014
Well, another remastered re-edition; bought it in the 70' in Lp,
bought in the mid 80' when cd started, bought the remastered Box set 1
and Box set 2 in early 90'...and still got them all. So!
I'm not buying them again anymore...! it has to stop and same thing with
The Beatles, Pink Floyd, etc...
Jimmy Page and George Marino digitaly remastered them at
sterling sound in New York in may 1990 with the original analogue master
tape to put it on a digital master (can't play to much with old master tapes).
Download iTunes and mp3 are high-infidelity not Hi-Fi sound; keep that in mind!

The new 2014 remastered is base on those digital master anyway.
The extra alternative take/ mix etc...is not so much of interest;
except on Led Zep 1 for the live concert in 1968 never publish before.
They will re-released them one by one, and after that put out a new
Box set again and again...love to have their bank account! Cheers.

4.0 out of 5 stars U2 music vs cd format, Oct. 15 2014
Well here it is physicaly...the music is U2, so expect it to sound like U2 songs,
no more, no less; it's very enjoyable and U2 fans will like it as is.
Will it be memorable or become a classic? probably not, but...time will tell.

The format is what's bugging me; the whole cd + Lucifer's hands/ the cristal ballroom
should have been part of the cd all together and the two alternative version /mix
included as bonus tracks= 72:41 total time for cd release.
the 22:00 acoustic sessions should have been offer for free download on iTunes.

Lots of artist offer a two cd version format so they can grab more money out of fans!
most fans will buy the deluxe edition for $2/ $3 more anyway...just like me :(

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank's Johnny..., July 21 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 2008: Live In Spain (DVD)
Johnny left us this month...and so the blues community,
but he leave us with an huge heritage of his unique Texan
blues.

This dvd by Immortal is a tv broadcast with(WATB)logo, from
the Jazzaldia Festival in San Sebastian, Spain on july 22,2008.
quality of picture and sound is substandard, but still enjoyable;
not much dvd's of Johnny out there anyway.
Johnny is in fragile health and is tempo as slow down with it,
but that's no reason for him...to blow you away with is guitar playing!
bought it for "Red House" cover from Jimi Hendrix...so glad to have it.
(wish that Stevie Ray Vaughan would have cover it before is death too...)
