Uncovered! 45 Tracks (His Masters Choice HMC-014)
“What’s this, another Rockband collection that I could do without?” I hear you asking. Well, before you put this package down and dismiss it as something you don’t need, I suggest you read the following explanation of how these tracks differ from all of the other Rockband-based compilations and collections out there (most of which can be found free on the Internet having been made by fans and posted on various Forums and file sharing sites).
In short, none of these tracks have been available in this form before. They have not been stolen from the Net and then nicely packaged to make them more appealing, nor have they been subject to various speed-correcting and/or equalization techniques and presented as sounding ‘better than ever’ (although they do sound truly excellent!).
No, the tracks on this set have been carefully remixed and reconstructed from several sources (including the now infamous Mogg tracks from the Rockband game) to highlight how the songs started out in the studio or how they sounded without various overdubs that are present on the final versions.
You’ll hear newly discovered pieces as the layers are stripped back to uncover new vocals, new instrumentation and quite a bit of Beatle chat in the studio during the sessions (including some that made it onto the master tapes during the actual recording of the songs).
As I said earlier, the sound quality is top notch, so you will not be disappointed with that either. The vocals now jump out of the speakers and the backing sounds as though it has just been played in your front room – it really is that good!If you liked this review, buy me a cup of joe. (Suggested: $3 a shot or $7.5 for a double)
