    Bill Bruford-'Feels Good To Me' & 'One Of A Kind' (with 5.1 mixes on DVD) (11/8/2019)

    Feels Good To Me:
    The band Bruford recorded this album in 1978 and it went on to achieve critical acclaimed and commercial success. This release includes a CD of a new stereo remix, and a DVD with a new 5.1 surround sound mix along with the original 1978 mix, all taken from the original 1978 analogue tapes, and all housed in a replica gatefold sleeve.

    new 5.1 surround sound mix
    Presumably not "new" since the release of the box.

    That's true; these are 'standalone' releases from the Seems Like A Lifetime Ago box set from two years ago.

    I notice that the updated Heavenly Bodies comp. from the complete Earthworks box set is coming out as a standalone 2-CD release. It offers the extra Earthworks Underground tracks that were only available if you bought that album when it first came out.

    Now if only the Santiago and Conception discs could see a standalone release...

    Already on the way to me from Burning Shed. $37.70 for both, including shipping to USA.

    Anyone have any thoughts on the Feels Good to Me stereo remix? I don't care about 5.1, but I've often felt I'd like a remixed version of this album that addresses some of the vocal/music balance, plus possibly having better sound overall, might be nice. If this new stereo mix is good, I might bite, so I'd welcome opinions on it. Thanks.

    My cd version of Feels Good doesn’t play anymore. If this is an improvement I’d definitely go for it.

    Yup. I spotted these last week and ordered.

    If it is Bill, I want it.

    These are two amazing albums; they deserve to have the best mix and fidelity possible.

    Haven't heard them yet, however, John Kelman did a review of Bruford's Seems Like A Lifetime Ago box set two years ago (where these 5.1 remixes were first released) and it sounds like they're both worth getting.

    The original vinyls are really good too.

    I was lucky in the days and got a new japanese pressing of 'Feels Good' that was way superior to my original LP.

    ^ My original on Polydor is also very good.

    A problem in those days was that you could get bad pressings. Either due to sloppiness or way to many printed on the same matrix.
    I remember it was important to avoid dutch pressings and preferably find an american.

    But my Holdsworth IOU original american pressing was horrible, and the dutch one I bought later was great!

    I know what you mean about 'bad pressings'; I had Feels Good To Me on vinyl when it first came out (the Polydor USA edition) and it had a skip on "Beelzebub" which I didn't even notice (until I picked up FGTM on CD and heard a part of the song that I didn't recognize). Looking forward to these remixed editions.

    Thanks for pointing this out! I just placed my annual birthday CD order and I threw this in with it, even though I have the original 1-disc version.
