The Mastering Session and The Music / Sometimes you just get lucky
The day I learned Steve Hoffman was going to re-master Crosby, Stills & Nash for an Audio Fidelity gold CD edition turned out to be the same day he actually did it. I found out early enough in the day to secure an invitation to Marsh Mastering in Los Angeles, and because I happened to be staying with friends that day only an hour away, managed to arrive in time to witness the entire session. CS&N has been a favorite since I was a teen, so for me, this was like winning the lottery.

A year later he moved to California, signed with Warner Brothers, and imported his producer from London, Peter Asher. Consequently Taylor reintroduced himself to listeners with Sweet Baby James, a landmark album that established the singer/songwriter as a major artist.

For those of us whose vinyl copies of James Taylor's triple-platinum 1970 album Sweet Baby James have worn out over time, Audio Fidelity has released a limited-numbered edition of the masterpiece in their 24K+ Gold Compact Disc Series, which uses a unique process to create the kind of warm sound many feel has been lost on today's standard disc. As they describe it, they use the original mixes to create what they consider the best versions of each song to produce a disc with a 24-karat, defect-free gold surface.

Rush – Roll The Bones (24KT CD)

September 1, 2011

Roll The Bones is one of those Rush albums that was largely forgot. I remember the title being fairly strong, as my father purchased it when it originally came out (1991). Audio Fidelity has picked up the title and is attempting to restore some of the glory that it rightfully deserves. By remastering the original tapes to a current level and placing it onto a 24K gold CD, Audio Fidelity has made a release that is as close to what the band wanted as possible.
