A-side - With The Norrie Paramor Strings.


28th Oct 2012
 I've noticed a buzzing noise, probably from Hank's amp , during the first few bars of the main melody on the vinyl and early cd stereo recordings which seems to have been eliminated on newer cd releases.

 In the second one, the guitars may seem louder, but that's because the strings (particularly the cellos) have been all-but mixed out. Which was my point about the difference. As a result, it doesn't have the clout of the mono single mix to my ears. But then, that was the first version I heard, way back when I was about six or seven.

 Have you got that the right way round? The second one sound to me like the guitars are louder.

Ita a good point though and well spotted.

 This is one of my all-time favourites, but the stereo version you get on compilations, etc. has the strings mixed far lower down throughout, and mixed out altogether in the ending. I think that the original version is far stronger (or maybe it's just bias on my part). You can hear what I mean at http://www.thejudge.me.uk/soundbank/Atlantis_endings.mp3, where the first version is the original single mix and the second is the stereo mix (but converted to mono in this case).

[Edit (18/05/11): I've taken the sound file down now - sorry!]
