The critically and commercially acclaimed deluxe re-release of all of Queen's studio albums continues with a group of lps which include their biggest, multi-platinum hits. Chockfull of hit singles, rarities and other bonuses which shed new light on the biggest selling British band of all time, these releases have something for everyone.
The versatility and drive of this band were and are awe inspiring and the envy of their peers. All of the albums are newly mastered by industry legend Bob Ludwig and are state of the art.
JAZZ continued Queen's hot streak and features 3 of their biggest WW singles ever -" Bicycle Race", "Fat Bottomed Girls" and "Don't Stop Me Now" plus the Queen classic "Let Me Entertain You" and ". Co-produced by Roy Thomas Baker, his first work with the band in 3 years. Incorporating a greater degree of funk mixed in with their hard rock, cabaret and prog rock elements, JAZZ is a wildly eclectic lp ranging from the hard rock of "Fat Bottomed Girls" to the Technicolor stage of "Let Me Entertain You". Support will include national consumer advertising, national and regional promotions plus airplay at rock and classic rock radio. The 2011 deluxe reissues of Queen's classic studio albums have already hit the Entertainment Weekly MUST List and received 4 STARS from Rolling Stone!
Did a band ever have more fun making an album (and being rock gods) than Queen did in '78? They piled vocal flourishes and guitar greatness all over these rock, funk and cabaret songs, soaring to #6 with the hits Bicycle Race; Fat Bottomed Girls; Don't Stop Me Now and the rest of Jazz . Alternate versions of all three hits are here, too, plus an acoustic version of Dreamer's Ball and a live 1981 recording of Let Me Entertain You !
Side Two opens with a Brian May rocker in Dead on Time, before another great Deacon track, In Only seven Days. May brings a great sing along song in Dreamers Ball before my least favourite track on the album, Fun It. I felt this Taylor number seemingly gave an indication of what was to come on Hot Space, and I wish it hadn't. The album runs nicely to a close with the great rocker Don't Stop me Now, and a song montage from the album that is More of that Jazz.
Not a Jazz album, just a classic piece of music on solid vinyl.
I loved it.
The original vinyl sound makes the remastered vinyl a huge disappointment and and everyone involved should be ashamed. The first song Mustapha is a great song with amazing soundscape highs that burst out of the speakers BUT IT DOES NOT.Unless you have the original vinyl or the remastered cd
I checked all these formats of Jazz The original is head and shoulders above the remasters But the remastered cd also sounds great. So why is the remastered 180g album so bad. So let’s go back to Mustapha the opening track. Parts of the track get filtered out so much it’s barely audible like a rubbish DJ remix It’s not my system as the original vinyl and remastered cd are amazing. The remastered vinyl lacks depth and bass and feels condensed throughout. The midrange is more prominent and this must be for mr Brian Mays guitars to stand out more. What a shame mr May.
So if you like vinyl seek out the original
If your a Queen fan buy the remastered cd but stay away from the remastered vinyl as you will be missing out on a great Queen album not at its best
