|One thing though,won't be a 'new' thing.Rtaher something buried in the mix and bought back up for the 2010 mix.Nothing new will have been actually added,rather there will have been parts inaudible but still there on the tape just mixed out.|
I agree with you, nothing has been added.
But you must admit that from 12:12 of part 1, it is quite different!
You say "inaudible". I agree....really inaudible on the 1974 mix.
("inaudible" is the same word as in French...funny!
I beg to differ, there are are some bass drum and cymbal hits in the 'thunderstorm' section that sound new and I reckon, that the acoustic guitar in the trumpet/clarinet section on part one is a current day re-recording. I might be wrong but I thought the original was a steel strung acoustic but is now a classical guitar. The playing and recording quality also sounds like modern-day Mike. What do you all think?
At first a lot of stuff in the 2010 mix really jarred with me but like much of Mike's work it makes more sense with every listen. There are a couple of changes I was hoping for that have been made; the fade at the start of part 1 and the increased volume of the 'thunderstorm' section. I could never understand why that was so quiet originally. Good to see the tubular bells have retained there 'balls' this time round too.
Listen to Mohribold; an epic musical tapestry that weaves between a multitude of genres.
Andrew Taylor's Mohribold album has proved very popular with fans of symphonic-rock, prog-rock, psych-folk and indeed Oldfield's classic albums!
