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.


The BBC sessions are interesting

I was expecting The Peel Shows but there are intros by Alan Freeman and Blindman is missing....

I suppose I need Airwaves which I didn't know existed until today!

I’ve never heard a live version of Blind Man: one of my favourite Curved Air songs.

The BBC stuff is interesting. I was expecting it to be the Peel shows but it is not - Alan Freeman doing intros....

I don’t imagine I’ll play CD 2 that often, but it’s fantastic to have the original album in much better sound quality.

Vivaldi leaps out at you with ferocity.

From Burning Shed

A 2018 expanded 2 disc edition of Curved Air’s inventive and popular third studio album Phantasmagoria (1972).

Remastered by Francis Monkman, the set includes a DVD (ntsc / region 0) featuring the band’s 1972 appearances on Belgian TV show Pop Shop and Austrian TV show Spotlight.

The digipak includes an illustrated booklet with an essay by Malcolm Dome, which features exclusive interviews.
