Engineer Steve Hoffman Talks About His 2011 Remaster of Phil Collins' Hello, I Must Be Going!
 
Engineer Steve Hoffman posted some comments about the forthcoming 24k gold audiophile CD remaster he recently completed of Phil Collins' second solo album from the original analog master tapes for the Audio Fidelity label. "Hello, I Must Be Going!, recorded and mixed in analog in 1982, was pretty easy to work on in mastering, for one reason. Phil and his management love what Audio Fidelity has done with Phil's 'sound' on the other two Gold CD's (Face Value and No Jacket Required) and our condition that 'the original tapes would be used' was (with a bit of anxious waiting) was accomplished. The masters, stored in the UK, came directly from Phil's management and with them in the loop, we in the mastering studio could clearly hear what Phil and Hugh were going for in the studio. Our goal was to translate that to digital, all the while respecting the original intent of the sound picture, not forgetting that the compromises that were made in '82 to get this to vinyl were no longer in play. That meant that the "extra sharp" bite of some of the songs no longer had to be toned down to be cut correctly on a phonograph record. However, Stephen Marsh and I did not want to kill anyone's eardrums by leaving the mixes totally unworked."

"In mastering these 30 ips tapes we wanted a full, rich sound, mindful of the fact that Phil didn't always want that. He likes stark, moody sounds sometimes and to "warm up" something like that in mastering would be the biggest type of betrayal of the original intent of the recording."

"Marsh and I worked at it until we nailed it with just the right amount of depth, warmth and lifelike sound and I believe we have faithfully reproduced what Phil and Hugh were going for back in 1982, but with the amazing tonality reproduction of the best Audio Fidelity sound. The crucial, magic midrange is here on our version and not in hiding like on most other releases of this album down through the years, especially the versions released in the United States that used the third generation Atlantic EQ'd cutting dub..."

Genesis' Debut Album To Be Reissued (Again)
 
Another reissue of Genesis' debut album, From Genesis to Revelation, is slated for October 31, 2011 in Europe. As with the other reissues of this album that have surfaced over the past several years, this release is an officially licensed product from the owner of these recordings, but its not approved by Genesis or their management. This 19-track reissue is not the most complete version ever released (some have had more than 19 tracks), but I'm pleased to see the use of the artwork, which was featured on one of the earlier LP reissues of the first album, many years ago.
