<br><br>On both the sheik version and the new dvd quadio release the first 20 seconds ( at 7 seconds in) and @ 1:min when the snare, guitar, piano buildup happens with the bass notes I notice it sounds like the audio level drops big time as if there is no headroom left.<br><br>Has anybody noticed the same thing?

listened to it the last 2 nights; got an early ryko canadian cd & it sounds ok...don't hear the drop in level after the snare buildup, don't have the loud drum hits on flakes or the bad cymbal hits on d.fool<br><br>biggest complaint: some of the vocals sound shit, the semi-spoken vocals sound good [yo' mama/d.fool/i've been in you] but the more melodic stuff sound warbly/reverby [bbsnx/b.brown/parts of broken hearts & yo mama/end of j.crusher]....<br><br>guitars are clean & bass/drums are reasonably consistent with a few drop-outs but you really have to be listening for them

I had read the great page on telia.com however I had never heard anyone speak of Wild Love<br><br>I was hoping that the Quadio version would not have that dropout. Now I do not have a univeral player yet.  So maybe the DVD-AUdio track will not have it.  The dts 5.1  digital track does.<br><br>I am a real pain in the ass audio wise and its probably true unless you are really listening you won't hear it. <br><br>Thanks guys for the reply. I simply love this song and was hoping it would also be a " monster version"<br><br>Andrew

Aww shit.... I've got the Zappa Records CD from 1990 (which is apparently the "original" RYKO remix by Bob Stone in the UMRK 89?). You tellin' me I need the EMI CD instead..??

Is the You Are What You Is remix better? I've always been majorly disappointed in the sound, on LP, cassette and CD. And it's still one of my favorites.<br><br>

[quote author=NANOOK76 link=board=albums;num=1096659488;start=15#24 date=10/08/04 at 07:29:46]<br><br>There are 2 different LP versions of Shiek Yerbouti. One is digitally re-mastered and sounds like ass, but if you have the original pressing with the Bobby Brown goes down sticker on it, then you have a copy that will beat any CD version. Same thing with YAWYI   ;D<br>[/quote]<br>I dunno.  I have a promo copy of the YAWYI LP (so it must be an original pressing), and I still think the newest Ryko CD blows it away.  The LP is a hell of a lot better than the original pre-'98 discs, but the '98 remaster made the LP pretty obsolete if you ask me.  The LP always sounded really thin to me, whereas the remaster has a much fuller sound.
