I was listening to this and track 11 has been Stingified.

 

R-3421041-1330119650.jpeg.jpg

 

It's a process that makes everything sound like "If you love somebody set them free".

 

So I reached to the CD shelves and found a couple of useful compilations:

 

R-914420-1267649505.jpeg.jpg

 

this one is by the composer.

 

This one is where the band make the song their own

 

R-492558-1122749381.jpg.jpg

 

in fact, one of the finest examples of reshaping a cover version to be found in rock music.

 

Mr Sting's version has now flown from my mind.

80's inspired synthwave sensation "The Midnight". Loving the vibe they create of dark neon lit soundscapes. So much so i've just purchased there discography on vinyl.

How do you find these 2009 German remasters compared to first pressings?

The only first pressings of AC/DC I have heard are my own US copy of "For Those About To Rock" and a mates "Back In Black" back in my ag college days in his dorm room blasting out of his huge Cerwin Vega speakers. That sounded amazing but hardly fit for a comparison 38 years apart😄....but the old "For Those" sounds quite similar to the new remastered Back In Black.....so I am quite impressed with the German pressed George Marino remasters!

As if to confirm my last post😆.....AC/DC "For Those About To Rock" US 1st pressing. Immediate impression, albeit a different album to BIB but same producer, would be the remasters have had an adjustment to slightly increase bass punch and maybe some treble tinkering.....but this first pressing does sound good!👍

Ok thanks, I’ll see what google has to say about the best AC/DC pressings.

Cool.👍

 

One thing I will say about this US !st pressing of "FTATR" is it is noisy.....a very un-US pressing like rumble is clearly audible between tracks.....the 2009 German pressings are definitely quieter.

Not sure where I heard this the first time, but sounds kind of cool.

Various - Finding Forrester (Soundtrack) -- rescued from the the $1 bins today ... a soundtrack that's mostly Miles Davis (from the early 1970s era), Ornette Coleman and new pieces from Bill Frisell. Choice.
