180 Gram Virgin Vinyl - Pressed at RTI -
Mastered by Kevin Gray & Steve Hoffman at Acoustech Mastering
Mastered from the original analog tapes.
Highly regarded re-master, by the Hoffman-Gray team operating under the AcousTech moniker Hearing it back to back with the UK is a study in contrast; it is much more dynamic and sounds far less dark than the UK.1st pressing Compared to the standard issue it betters them in several respects- it sounds less compressed, has more information from top to bottom and the surfaces are quiet. .
Renowned for the Top 10 hit "Chuck E's In Love," Rickie Lee Jones overflows with finger-snapping be-bop accents, funky cabaret melodies, bluesy bridges, soothing balladry, and even Westernized fills. Subdued complexities flavor the arrangements, expressly tailored for Jones' portrait-rich storytelling and character-driven narratives. Such diversity is on display on the metaphorical heartache of "Last Chance Texaco," reflective "Company," and corner-hangout musings of "Danny's All-Star Joint." Throughout, intricate guitar lines give listeners further reason to concentrate on the tunes. This one is simply a must-have.
