COMING SOON: BRYAN ADAMS ctd

The St. Augustine Record has an article with Bryan Adams before his gig at the St. Augustine Amphitheater.  

From the interview:
Compass: I read that you’re set to release a new studio album in the fall. What can you tell me about it? 
B.A.: It’s my 13th album of music and probably my most rocking record by far. It’s been produced by Jeff Lynne and co-written with my long-time buddy Jim Vallance, who wrote “Reckless” with me.

Compass: Is it titled yet? 
B.A.: Yes, but I have to keep it secret for another couple of weeks.

TOM PETTY IN HI-DEF


Tom Petty announced today that his catalog is now available on hi-def formats from select online retailers.  Included in that are the Jeff Lynne-produced Full Moon Fever, Into The Great Wide Open and Highway Companion.



You may need to refine/redo your search on Tom Petty or Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers to find all the albums.


Tom makes the case:


As does Ryan Ulyate:
The Hi-Res (24bit 96K) remastering of the Tom Petty catalog reveals a level of detail that was only previously heard by a select group of musicians, producers and engineers in the studio. It’s as close to the sound of original stereo master as you can get. We’re very happy with the way it came out, and believe it’s an important way to preserve the legacy of this great body of work. 
If hearing the highest possible sound quality is important to you, then this is where you’ll get it. 
The remastering was done in the fall of 2014 by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering. I supervised it and Tom approved it. Great care was taken to find the original first-generation masters and transfer them with minimal eq and little or no dynamic range compression. In cases where the first-generation masters were unusable, we used the best sounding second-generation masters.
To allow for full dynamic range, and to let the music “breathe” the Hi-Res versions have about 6-8db less digital level than a typical “loud” peak-limited CD or mp3. To enjoy these albums to their fullest extent, play them back though a good system and turn up the volume. 
With this increased level of detail and sonic impact, we hope you'll enjoy rediscovering these great albums as much as we did!
