Re: On air compression
When working with the old Charisma label Genesis were on, I complained about surface noise even on the white label vinyl samples I used for radio ads.
Rather grudgingly, I was informed that they'd gone for a "classical press" when the live double album "Seconds Out" was produced. Can't say I could hear any difference. Worthwhile seeking the
fairly recently remastered CD versions of the band's early albums, they really are an improvement.
