The thing that bothers me is that the playing and singing is so great, why not have a great sounding recording to go with it? Everytime I listen to it I will think about how great it could have sounded.
I realize this is what they signed off on and wanted, and I'm a big CT fan, so I'm kind of confused. He has always had full-fidelity on his recordings, and that's one fo the reasons I enjoy them so much. Sorry if my dissapointment dissapoints you.
Another album that dissapointed me like this was the final Cadillac Sky album. After 2 great recordings someone decided to go vintage style recording on their 3rd (and ultimatly final) album. It sounds like I got ear muffs on.
