thanks, prof! - antonyjReplyDelete
Thanks Prof. This one should prove interesting as it's one of my favourites.ReplyDelete
No more war pigs have the power. Excellent. Thanks, Prof!ReplyDelete
Great! Thanks a lot.ReplyDelete
What a gift, allowing us to hear an all-timer like this LP from a slightly different pov. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Thanks for this!!ReplyDelete
Thank you Prof. Stoned!ReplyDelete
Wow! Thanks prof.ReplyDelete
Prof.,. Ever since you did a rip / remaster of Black Sabbath's Fontana "Evil Woman" single back in 2012 I was hoping that you'd somehow put you hand to Paranoid. Little did I anticipate such a thing as your Demix / Remix process back then.ReplyDelete
Once again you have lifted the sonic veil off of what was hidden on the tape.
I went directly to the title track because nowhere is that "muffled" heavy handed bass ( I always guessed that the bass was recorded line direct throughout the session ... Nothing more horrible that relegating the bass as an afterthought in the recording process) more prevalent in obstructing everything else. It now has breathing and wiggle room for all of the other recorded elements to shine
I'm not a hardcore Sabbath fan but a few of their albums, such as "Paranoid" are important to me as well as others and worth the energy you've put into it .
Thanks for yet another miracle.
Man you never stop amazing and interesting me, please go on!ReplyDelete
A big Thank You for another great work you've done, cheers KarlReplyDelete
Oh boy -- can't wait to hear this one! Always disappointed by the early Black Sabbath mixes and even more by the remasters. Vol 4 please!!ReplyDelete
(as heard on the CD reissues that is, including the Castle releases as you indicated)Delete
I tried my hand at demixing Wheels of Confusion from Vol 4 last year, but found the result not satisfactory. So, that's not happening.Delete
I hadn’t listen to this album for 40 years ( I am not very fond of that band), but it’s a very good jobReplyDelete
Holy shit, that sounds great. Thank you.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for your amazing work Prof. Stoned! It sounds fantastic!ReplyDelete
Thank you Prof, I was just thinking about this album today, and how it sounds. I look forward to this.ReplyDelete
Prof, I forgot to mention that I think it's real cool how you reverted the ending of War Pigs back from the sped up ending that Rodger Bain & Tom Allom created to the speed of the rest of the recording. I'm sure the purist are flipping out but it wasn't originally intended anyway.ReplyDelete
It's much better, isn't it? I remember thinking when I first heard the quad LP 20 years ago, "there's nothing wrong with this ending, at all".Delete
I didn't even realize there was a Quadrophonic version... Cool insight.Delete
Far out. This sounds mean! When the wife goes out tomorrow, I'm going to crank this up.ReplyDelete
I never heard it sound so defined, and didn't think it was possible.
Thanks prof for this. Sounds amazing. Any chance of having a look at raw powerReplyDelete
I actually toyed around with it last year, but it's a turd.Delete
Sorry I asked 😔 I figured if anyone could do anything with it. You'd be the manDelete
I mean your remixes are incredible so I hope you can do something because you are the best.Delete
Damn - I get a prompt indicating "too many people have downloaded it recently" and to try later - very well done indeed, Prof, and thank you!ReplyDelete
aahh, there we go - got it; great thanks, absolutely essential bit, this!Delete
this sounds impossibly immediate...all instruments sound perfect...amazing work as always prof! many thanks!ReplyDelete
Fantastic remix. Thanks!ReplyDelete
This is awesome, thanks Prof!ReplyDelete
This sounds great. You have a knack, Professor! Bring on Are You Experienced!!ReplyDelete
Sounds great - thanks Prof!ReplyDelete
Brilliant, thanks Prof!ReplyDelete
Never listened to this album from a good source, just accepted that it sounded a bit of the era and hence a bit flat sonically. Now this sounds good and what the material is worthy of! Very nice.ReplyDelete
Never satisfied with this before, as I have the 1996, 2009 and 2016 remasters. Thanks for this masterful work.ReplyDelete
Wow, it sounds really good, but still faithfull to the source. Thanks!ReplyDelete
Thanks a lot Prof., excellent sound for a classic album!!!ReplyDelete
Thanks for this and for your work turning Live at Montreux into a listenable mix. Superb!ReplyDelete
I haven't listened to this album for over fifty years. I'm amazed by how much I'm enjoying it. It sounds fantastic - I can't compare it with any other version, and I know I don't have to. All the kickings this album got seem totally misplaced. Who cares if the lyrics are dumb? This isn't Paul Simon! They're sung from the gut, which is what matters. It's a surprisingly melodic and musical album - no atonal shrieking din - with more variety than I remember. And it's not depressing, another surprise, given the lyrics and its reputation as a downer album. Everyone's in tune and on the beat, and it's an effort not to air guitar. It's a freaking blast, forty-two minutes of monster freakery, and thank you for getting it to us with fresh ears, all these years later.ReplyDelete
