NEW REMASTERED CD

OMG, If you are a Rea fan you NEED to buy this remastered CD, it is absolutely beautiful to hear.
As soon as track 1 (Santini) kicked in I just knew I had bought a superb CD.The sound is awesome and makes previous cd releases defunct and naff sounding.The sax on Santini just screams at you crystal clear. Piano tinkles away on Closer You Get with and bass is a thumping. The guitar sounds wow!! And Chris's vocals are much clearer.
I won't go through every track because as you know this is a stunning album that, thanks to this release, sounds the best it has ever done.
It has a card sleeve (not jewel) and has a replica inner lyric sleeve as per original vinyl.
I hope this is the start of a series of remasters of Chris's back catalogue, especially Wired To The Moon, Shamrock Diaries, On The Beach and Dancing With Strangers.
My only negative, and its a small one, a shame no bonus (non album tracks or b-sides).
AWESOME!!! To paraphrase a Rea album, this is Bright Light Through Old Windows
