Comments from original uploader:
While I don’t appreciate Godfather’s work on most of their releases; this bootleg is my favourite source for the outstanding “Oh Mercy” outtakes. I think they managed to reduce the hiss, without ruining the music – unlike so many other times. The versions here differ from the released versions – to bigger and lesser extent.

  1. Thanks for this. Could you explain your comment on Godfather sound? Interested in your opinion.

  2. That’s not actually my comment, it came from the text file that I got with the show when I originally downloaded it. I have no opinion on Godfather sound.

  4. Just for interest, about the Godfather comment:
    Godfather tend to “remaster” very, very
    heavily – lots of EQing and compression. The results
    can sound impressive on eg an ipod, where eg a fairly decent aud might sound dull, but listen on a big stereo
    and all that “mastering” becomes clearly audible, the
    sound perhaps becoming edgy and thin.
    To be fair to Godfather they seem to be prepared often
    to work with poorer sources, rescuing what would otherwise be considered great material.

    IMHO :;
