I’m saving myself for the new remaster now.

Here’s hoping for something wonderful.

Something the music deserves.

Suffice to say, I was at the 1970 BBC Peel Show - the first time I saw them live

Impressive. I saw them on the Second Album and Phantasmagoria tours, but I would have have loved to have seen the band with bassist Rob Martin. The band were never as good again after his departure. Rob One, was a beautiful piece, wasn’t it?

I didn’t think £14 was too bad for a double CD, but just to hedge my bets, I did pay for it with a Christmas voucher :D.

Surprisingly, it's cheaper as an import at Amazon US than it is on Amazon UK. Very strange.

Once it is released other sellers will reduce the price - hopefully!

(It will be good to hear the 1970 BBC show - I remember it as if it were yesterday)

It happened today, it’s finally arrived. And you know what? It’s fucking fanrastic! I ve been waiting since my 13th Bithday to hear Air Conditioning with this sort of depth and clarity to the sound. This remaster shows that Air Conditioning was well recorded after all: just poorly produced. There’s all sorts of stuff going on that I’d never heard before, and you can finally hear the bass and drums properly, now that the layers of fog have been removed. The two bonus studio tracks are really good, as well. Thinking On The Floor, is.obviously inspired by Its A Beautiful Day,, whilst, What Happens When You Blow Yourself Up, has fusion shades of Mahavishnu Orchestra. Nice early takes of album songs and even nicer live material, makes me a very happy boy indeed. Great packaging and informative sleeve notes: what’s not to like? It’s 1970 all over again.

Robust stuff!

Sounds great - I am very pleased for you.

I will check the price now on Amazon

PS Can you hear me on the BBC recordings? [Is the sound quality good?]

I was listening to my old cd copy of this just last night. Not sure if I need to upgrade just yet.
Where would rock 'n' roll be without feedback?

Purchased and playing now

Yes, there is a significant improvemeent according to my old ears.

Improved separation and greater clarity of instrumentation particularly bass, guitar and violin (tubs still a bit murky)

Sonja's voice is as crisp as ever

I am looking forward to getting on to CD2 and the BBc stuff (I was there. Of course)

Hey I’m glad you got it, C.

Definitely worth the outlay for me.
