I listen to it again already currently, really great music and I love the direct sound with the live like presence of the drum set and bass reproduction in general. Powerful and I’m sure the best musical performance on Octave yet.
Another fun listen through the whole records today.
Would be interesting if something changed in the recording setup for all the tracks after 1964 on record 2, as they sound quite a bit airyer with better separation than the previous ones.
It would also be interesting why the short 1964 was faded out.
There’s definitely 3D potential in those later tracks. If with recording setup or gear optimization in future room ambiance/imaging would get more free floating and open, it would already be special for a digital recording on vinyl. Looking forward to hearing a second Mervine LP release maybe next year?
A small service to those who still look out for the SACD or LP:
