Message Brought to Us WM-7079-1

Message Brought to Us (1999) was the first CD release from original master tapes, with the band’s blessing. Includes personal favorites of the band, and six (of eight) tracks from the ultra-rare Country in the Sky cassette, but dubbed from the original four-channel master reels! There’s also one previously unreleased practice song. A great value!

A - B Comparisons between my original LP copies of Spirit of Elijah and Heaven’s Gonna Be a Blast (short samples of four songs in two mixes)

Crown of Glorynotice the original extreme reverb on the LP, and the clarity of the remix. You may also notice that the LP was pressed in stereo-reverse. My remix restores the original spatial balance.

His Eye is On the Sparrow  — as above. As nice as this song sounds with reverb, it is so much clearer in the remix, and the instruments (again, stereo-reversed) have full detail.

I Wish I Had the Words to Tell Youthe heavy mid-bass and weak treble make for a muddy mix on the LP. You may notice a huge dropout in the verse. The CD version pops with clarity, and the bass moves into the normal range. Note: the instruments were recorded in mono (center) with the vocals and percussion in stereo.

Like a Warm Summer Daythe LP was especially muddy on this track. The CD version practically puts the listener in the studio with them! The instruments were in true stereo here,  but the opening piano chords suffered from extreme dropouts and tape flutter. Thankfully, the original master tape had no dropouts.

The Wilson McKinley Have Returned  (On Vinyl)!

Both Spirit of Elijah and Heaven’s Gonna Be a Blast albums are now available on high-quality vinyl, utilizing unedited original master tapes, far clearer and more vivid than the muddy, scratchy, over-processed original records! The extensive liner notes and photos, as well as the album scans and master recordings, were provided by

Lion Productions and Obscure Oxide have released the LP’s for the collector market, with our full cooperation, and they are gorgeous! The photo below shows my preview copies with the original artwork, our inserts, and the vinyl with original labels. Only a small logo on each LP identifies it as a reissue. I also scanned the two promo stickers provided by Lion Productions, because they were printed too small (Jade Hubertz at Obscure Oxide says that’s their only “oops” in this production). Hopefully they are clear enough to read here!
