High Land, Hard Rain - Aztec Camera. Лента с персональными рекомендациями и музыкальными новинками, радио, подборки на любой вкус, удобное управление своей. High Land, Hard Rain is the debut album by jangle pop band Aztec Camera, released in 1983. Three tracks from the album originally appeared on the Oblivious EP, which reached number 18 on the UK Singles Chart in November 1983. The album itself reached number 22 on the UK Albums Chart. The majority of the album was recorded at the ICC Studios in Eastbourne. Down the Dip was inspired by a local East Kilbride pub located close to Duncanrig Secondary School, Roddy Frame's high school. Originally called. Aztec Camera. High Land, Hard Rain. Frame's wry way around words of love as well as his slightly nasal singing drew comparisons to Elvis Costello, but Frame sounds far less burdened by expectations and more freely fun. Альбом 1983 Песен: 13. Aztec Camera's High Land, Hard Rain is one of many albums I own that took a LONG time to like. I bought it with the knowledge that it was a monumental and thus historically influential album in the 80's - it was very unique and well-produced at the time. The other interesting fact is that it was all done by a seventeen year-old Every song here is good, but the problem with most of them is that Roddy Frame's voice isn't all that appealing - it has a boyish nature to it and it just isn't all that good this is the reason I didn't like it at first.

A travesty of a reissue. Wrong mixes here, bad mastering there and one track even jumps due to it being 'mastered' from a ropey vinyl copy. I understand that Edsel did produce some replacement discs, via parent Demon.
Sermak Light
Was able to pick this up dirt cheap, so I went for it! Nice booklet...and that's about it. The sound is dull and flat. A must to avoid! Why would you bother to re-release this and not remaster it? Has left a really bad taste in my mouth over Edsel, who are now joining the ranks of junk re-issue labels ala Cherry Red. The fans deserve better.
Impala Frozen
The recordings are NOT remastered. There is an audio glitch present on track 17.
No problem. There were problems with Blancmange too! The Megamix isn't a Megamix, for example. :-/
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!! I hate buying fancy reissues when the label doesn't even bother to remaster them. I'm surprised at Edsel as they did such a nice job on the Blancmange, EBTG and Thompson Twins. Shame on you Edsel!
