RE:Upcoming 2016 Real Gone Music Christmas CD Releases
(Date Posted:11/20/2016 23:15)
Hello Chip and Johnny,
Yes indeed, there are some real dimwits out there posting ridiculous comments and baseless reviews on amazon periodically and usually they are outweighed heavily by the rest of us music lovers with common sense and a decent ear.
I remember well that absolutely idiotic review of the George Melachrino album and particularly that very unfair and almost personal attack on the incredibly beautiful remastering job Maria Triana did on that splendid release. I followed your lead as well Chip and posted my own five star review defending the great remastering job by the brilliant Ms Triana.
Maria Triana has got to be one of the best remastering engineers and has even worked on Elvis Presley's catalogue for RCA on some of his box sets with the legendary engineer Vic Anesini who is beloved by Elvis audiophiles all over the world. As you well know Chip, one does not get close to the Elvis masters unless they have impeccable credentials and an amazing track record. The Elvis recording catalogue is probably the most valuable and revered in the business besides the Beatles' master recordings.
The Jack Jones Christmas album remastered by the very respected Mike Milchner is extraordinary as well. I find the remastering efforts by Real Gone Music to be superior to any other labels in the business, especially with regard to these great Christmas gems from the late fifties and early sixties. When I see a Christmas re-release is coming from a label other than Real Gone Music, I am almost always slightly disappointed as I know they are unlikely to take the same care in remastering and producing the original art work and have such amazing liner notes.
Please help Real Gone Music keep up the great effort in rereleasing these masterpieces from a bygone era and know that your Yule Log members will have your and Real Gones's back when it comes to these efforts.
