This lovely Island Sunray British Import LP has some of the BEST SOUND I’ve ever heard for this band. Glyn Johns has done it again! Side one is amazing — super sweet and spacious, OVERFLOWING with tubey magic. If you love trippy pop as much as we do here at Better Records — think Dark Side of the Moon, Taking Tiger Mountain, Ambrosia, Magical Mystery Tour, Thick As A Brick and the like — you may find this one right up your alley.
The sound by Glyn Johns absolutely blew us away; not many records in the last thirty years have been recorded this well.
It’s got that wall-to-wall, ceiling-to-floor, HUGE three-dimensional soundstage that we love here at Better Records. It’s super-spacious as well as being tonally Right On The Money (ROTM), with PRODIGIOUS amounts of bass, a hallmark of Johns’ recording style.
Side two is nearly as good sounding, though not quite the equal of side one, which, as we say, if practically off the charts!
