They are, and overall the quality of the remaster is excellent. But I am not sure it sounds any better than my original copy from 1973..

My battered and bruised copy of Zozo, which despite being 44 years old and played virually flat STILL sounds better than the utterly wretched remaster Page conned us all with a couple of years back. And yes, it did cost me 75p, and it is in D condition... :)

Remember this little oddity released on Purple Records?



This from the Purple Records website:
Purple Records' last new release of 1972 was a strange one. 'Who Is The Doctor' was an idea by Rupert Hine to update the Doctor Who theme. Roger Glover met Rupert Hine and David MacIver, working as a duo called Rupert And David, in the mid-sixties at a publisher's office. Glover kept in touch with Hine and when the new label began he got them signed up. 'I heard some of their songs; complicated, wordy, jazzy folk musical extravaganzas. I encouraged them to simplify their music a little and ended up producing them for the label', Glover recalls. He realised that Hine was full of ideas and encouraged him to get involved in production work. Jon Pertwee (then playing the Doctor on TV) was invited to guest on the single. It's a fun track and a very collectable record amongst Doctor Who fans.

Sounds great!

Improved separation and clarity

Greater depth - new instrumentation discovered.

Bass and keyboards improved

Back into the Future was so good I'm continuing with Man.



After a bit of a slow start things have really clicked into gear with Kerosene & Scotch Corner, looking forward to the live tracks.

I almost went for that, wasn't it the one we did as a PSL last year? Served as my intro to Man. I played a couple of albums the weekend or two after, then they slipped off my radar. From Back into the Future & Rhinos I preferred BitF.
