Couldn’t agree more. Most of the sigma upgrade releases are just different EQ processing. I am always wary of the upgrades now and hang onto all my original sigma/sirene titles. Only a few are true upgrades ie Nassau 2nd Night 1975.
Which particular upgrade of the Nassau 1975-06-17 show do you mean? “Nassau Coliseum 1975 2nd Night…Cassette Master” (Sigma 175) or “A Generation’s Legacy” (Sigma 63)?
Got the Definitive Tokyo 1972 2nd Night and all I can say is I’m glad I still have my Original. If you like over processed ‘upgrades’ that leave the top end headache inducing this set fits the bill. Volume levels are increased to extremes, which is fine on the quieter songs, but not on louder passages of songs like ‘One Of These Day’, in my humble opinion. Hoping for better from the Osaka set.
Which particular “Original” are you referring to? The old Zeus release from many years ago, or some other release, maybe by Sigma or Sirene? I got my new “Definitive” version by Sigma myself a couple days ago, and I tend to agree that it sounds overprocessed & rather disappointing…possibly even worse than their previous attempt/effort at getting it right, which was also overprocessed & rather disappointing, which Relayer67 pretty much confirmed in his eventual review here. But I’m still wondering which particular “Original” you’re comparing yours to…thanks if you could kindly just let us know. Has anybody other than Zeus & Sigma/Sirene ever released this on factory-pressed original silver? I can’t seem to remember any.
I prefer the version in the “Darker Side Of The Rising Sun” box from Godfather which uses the same tape. Less hiss.
I forgot about that one, which doesn’t surprise me because I often tend to forget about those types of boxed sets, as I rarely buy anything more than 6 discs.
Has anybody heard the recently-released P. Floyd 2CD “Vienna 1973” by Sigma? I may take a chance or risk on it if nobody here can first let us know how it is. Any helpful response(s) about it will be greatly well-appreciated.
