More Greensleeves getting the VP treatment

Postby flashman » Fri Jun 19, 2015 5:13 am

In addition to the screw up on the recent Josey Wales lp reissue the recent reissue of Johnny Osbourne-Water Pumping sounds like sh*#. Just so's ya know. Dangerous Dub sounds great, though. So that makes 1 out of 3.

Good to know, thanks for the heads up. Have an original of the Josey but was planning on picking up the other two. Sounds like the Johnny is one to skip then. Can't say I've had any complaints about sound quality on any previous reissues.

most of the previous Greensleeves have been good, except John Holt -Police in Helicopter lp. The Johnny Osbourne has slightly distorted/overdriven bass, which drives me crazy. Someone asleep at the mastering wheel. I have an MP3 copy that sounds way better. I'm now starting to be as wary of Greensleeves as I am of VP. Seems QC is down since VP took over.

NEVER heard a bad sounding Greensleeves record...i always use their 12"s to test & adjust a sound. This is sad.

How did they screw up the Josey album?

Might as well buy the original Greensleeves releases. Better quality & cheaper than bad represses with bad digital re-mastering on bad pressings.
