Steve Hoffman Discography
|Title:||From The Original Master Tapes|
|Catalog Nº:||MCAD-5540 DIDX-203|
|Mastering:||Mastered by Steve Hoffman|
|Notes:||"Compiled and remastered by Steve Hoffman" Several versions of the cd were released. |
There are at least three versions of the Buddy Holly "From the Original Master Tapes" CD. The original pressing is from Japan, and used the correct master tape as prepared by Steve Hoffman. There were later pressings done in the US, however, which (incorrectly) used theLP master tape for the CD, which resulted in some phase problems: one cd pressing with a count-off on "It Doesn't Matter Anymore", and another pressing without the count-off. They are the same other than the count off.
The original first pressing should say: "Manufactured in Japan for MCA Records, INC." The inner ring should say: "MCAD 5540 M1E1"
Aside: Steve is on record as saying that ALL versions sound great, so please don't obsess about this!
