Ned, you should give bringing the issue to Warner's attention a try. You never know if it might even result in an improvement.

You know what - that's a fantastic suggestion. I'm going to take a "picture" of the sound with a spectrum analyzer which will actually show on a graph the offending bass sub-frequencies and forward it to them with a thoughtful note. I believe there's an email address on the back of the CD and just take a chance. Like you suggested, it couldn't hurt. Thanks for the tip. I'll get back on the board about it if I hear anything from them.

Best,

-Ned

I have an pressed disc, with the silver seal on most Italian packages. No problems for me at.

If I recall correctly there is bass reinforcement in the performance.

I have no problem with my CD. The thin and very (too ?) elaborated writing is clearly listened.
It has a better sound than the e-album in mp3 format issued just before.

Maybe a bad pressing process for some copies ?
I never heard about troubles from other collectors I known, so I suppose that bad phenomenon remains rare.

I have no problems with my CD either although I do agree there's too much bass in some
of the tracks.

...

For what it's worth, the worst sounding Morricone release I have is 'Hundra' on the Laserlight label (I missed the Prometheus release). Absolutely terrible.


Off-topic:
Don't worry ... both releases sound the same to me! At least the Prometheus release has a better sleeve/booklet.


Sorry, off-topic again, but I was always of the impression the Laserlight release was just a cheap straight transfer, whereas the Prometheus was a good sounding remastered release. Obviously not. Anyone know the issue with the sound here then? Maybe some chance of a decent sounding rerelease at some stage?
