GRAND 12 INCHES VOLUME 6 (4 CD SETS) COLLECTORS EDITION

GRAND 12 INCHES VOLUME 6 (4 CD SETS) COLLECTORS EDITION
Release : 2009
Genre: Funk, Soul, Dance
Theseare the roots of my career in music. These tracks have determined thepath to follow and many of
them where revolutionary and trulyprogressive at the time they where originally released. I have taken
thegreatest care to come up with the best possible masters, sometimescomparing up to 5 different
versions to find out which one sounded thebest and most pure. And sometimes even baking the analog
master tapes tomake them playable again. The heat evaporates the moisture in thecoating of the tape.
The otherwise moist backing will clog up all partsof the tape recorder the tape touches, leaving a dark
glue likesubstance grinding everything to a halt. After the backing process, thetape becomes playable
again and the transfer to digital is performed.Some tracks feature a combination of vocal and dub
version just as Iused to perform that combination in a live DJ-set. Such a combinationfeatures the best
parts from the vocal and dub version, capturing thecomplete feel of what that track meant to me.
If you write acomment simply based on comparing tracklists, you are clearly missingthe point. Yes,
many tracks where on other CDs previously, but on theseother CDs they were often taken from vinyl or worse.
Example:Poussez was released just over 2 years ago. That CD featured utterlydestroyed
over-processed over-leveled versions which simply hurt my earsand heart. So the fact that someone else
botched that CD releaseactually urged me to include them in proper quality on this release. Thesource I
took them from was a first generation digital copy made mid80s from an original production master.
The result is mint quality asexpected. Same goes for ZTT masters, taken form the original versionsfrom the vaults of ZTT.
This is not just a compilation, these arethe high quality masters surpassing many many many other
versions foundon other compilations. Do not judge as an accountant, by comparingexcel database sheets,
or website entries, but by judging with yourears.

Liebrand just keeps his series growing stronger. This man is so passionate about his music that he does
everything he can to get these classics on CD at last, and willingly admits in his liner notes where each
source came from, whether it's the original master or vinyl, and the work he did to clean up any sound
issues with such sources in order to preserve these hard-to-find versions digitally. The fantastic thing
about this volume is that in several cases, when, for example, a `long' album version and a 12" mix are
very different and each has something unique to offer a song, liebrand himself masters a version that
takes the best of both mixes and creates an all-NEW, basically definitive version many of us dance
collectors have always wished for in the first place. When you read his liner notes, you will be amazed at
the lengths he goes to in the studio to bring all of these songs to you in the best sounding quality
possible.

GRAND 12 INCHES VOLUME 4 (4 CD SETS) COLLECTORS EDITION

GRAND 12 INCHES VOLUME 4 (4 CD SETS) COLLECTORS EDITION
Release : 2008
Genre: Funk, Soul, Dance
These are the roots of my career in music. These tracks have determined the path to follow and many of them where revolutionary and truly progressive at the time they where originally released. I have taken the greatest care to come up with the best possible masters, sometimes comparing up to 5 different versions to find out which one sounded the best and most pure. And sometimes even baking the analog master tapes to make them playable again. The heat evaporates the moisture in the coating of the tape. The otherwise moist backing will clog up all parts of the tape recorder the tape touches, leaving a dark glue like substance grinding everything to a halt. After the backing process, the tape becomes playable again and the transfer to digital is performed. Some tracks feature a combination of vocal and dub version just as I used to perform that combination in a live DJ-set. Such a combination features the best parts from the vocal and dub version, capturing the complete feel of what that track meant to me.

Liebrand just keeps his series growing stronger. This man is so passionate about his music that he does everything he can to get these classics on CD at last, and willingly admits in his liner notes where each source came from, whether it's the original master or vinyl, and the work he did to clean up any sound issues with such sources in order to preserve these hard-to-find versions digitally. The fantastic thing about this volume is that in several cases, when, for example, a `long' album version and a 12" mix are very different and each has something unique to offer a song, liebrand himself masters a version that takes the best of both mixes and creates an all-NEW, basically definitive version many of us dance collectors have always wished for in the first place. When you read his liner notes, you will be amazed at the lengths he goes to in the studio to bring all of these songs to you in the best sounding quality possible.

This is truly an incredible collection, and you need not fear the quality. This is fully licensed material
and is distributed by Sony Music. It's incredible that they've included some 12" versions that were
actually FULL sides of a vinyl LP, running more than 15 minutes. I only have a couple of issues based
on what I know about some of this original material. On disc 1, "Let It All blow" by Dazz Band is a
minute shorter than on my original 12"!!! I can't figure out why they would edit one of the singles. I
noticed the same thing with "Medicine Song" by Stephanie Mills...it's 20 seconds shorter than my
original 12" (you can find the full 12" version on the CD "I Love Funky Disco"). And finally, although
"twilight zone" by Manhattan transfer says it's the 12" version, this is the album length. The 12"
version ran 30 seconds longer (believe it or not) and I've only seen it available on CD on an out-of-print
CD called Atlantic Dance Classics.

This collection, distributed by Sony Music (the sound quality is excellent) is a 12" collector's dream.
Full mixes, not beat mixed. There are some noticeably curious choices here, alongside the obvious. The
original 12" of Mighty Real by Sylvester is much different than the version most people are used to.
"forget Me Nots" is listed as the original 12" version, so I guess the 7 minute version I have elsewhere
was a follow up 12"? Rapper's Delight is the long version that fades rather than the one that ends cold.
Not sure why we get an acappella version of Last night a DJ, or both versions of I Feel Love,
considering most dance collectors are likely to have the original 12" on some of Donna's own releases.
I've never been a fan of the noisy Patrick Cowley remix, with improvised keyboards thrown on top that
drown out the perfection of the original. Let the Music Play by Shannon is not the "remix" from the
original album, which had sort of a dub feel at times, but more of an all out extended vocal version (is it
just me, or is there really a need for a thorough 12" collection on CD of her 1980s tracks?). IOU appears
in its longest 12" form (the original 12" was 7:40, the remix is a minute longer!). As usual, we get the
12" choice mix of Finally on CD, where as what we really need on CD is the other side of the US 12",
which is actually the more popular version that omits the annoying soft house piano on this mix. Get
Ready for This features both the rap and the female vocal chorus-this extended version is rare on CD.
Blue Monday is the original album version. Situation by Yazoo is a treat, because it really is the
ultimate "extended" version of the ORIGINAL mix, not a remix. Don't miss volume 2 also!
