RAMONES

Post by coffeepotman » 07 Sep 2016, 3:57pm

I'm listening to a preview of the Ramones first album in mono and it's KILLER! I thought this was just another cash grab but this is actually really good and side by side with the stereo version that we're all familiar with it is so much better.

Yep it sounds great. I have a lot of stuff that was recorded in mono that sounds better than it's stereo counterpart.

In fact the best way to mix anything is in mono. I prefer mono deluxe to stereo.

Seems pretty minor, but hearing the count in to BB was pretty awesome.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.

Perhaps this will be my conversion.

I prefer the mono mix of Vilage Green by the Kinks. I've also come to realize most of the Beatles albums are better in mono in lieu of us ever getting proper stereo mixes on them.
I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Definitely agree on both of those.

The feedback and 1234 intro to BB is amazing, it lets you know a freight train is coming, NOW. The rest of the package I'm not too crazy about, some demos that we already have and 2 live shows which are pretty identical and one was on the deluxe Leave Home...So my vote is this isn't a real value for the money.

I'll have to wait to hear it myself, but I've heard a lot of complaints that these mono mixes actually sound tinnier than previous masters.
