Anyone have the JT Gold Remaster CD?

If so, any information in regards to quality improvement would be very appreciated.

Could you drop me an email at scottj@hotpop.com?

Thanks in advance

I have it, but I'm not at all sure what you are asking. Can you clarify?

All of the U2 'Gold Remasters' sound better than the originals IMHO

Are you referring to...

U2 - The Joshua Tree (Original Master Recording - Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab UDCD 650)

and

U2 - The Unforgettable Fire (Original Master Recording - Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab UDCD 624)

I don't know if there are any others but would sure like to find out

Really? Wow! I've never seen that listed for sale.

Now I really have to have that. The other two have such superior sound. The "regular" UF disk in particular is just so painful to listen to, even without the comparison.

I expect so, but in order to verify that, I would have to climb two sets of stairs, and you surely would not expect me to do that?

OK, so I just went to Amazon, and the "Gold" War is listed. I just, rather insanely, bought a new copy of it.

These things came about I gather because before Arnie Arcosta handled their mastering (from R&H onwards), Island used to do it themselves, and Larry finally started doubting how good a job they were doing. The original "JT", for example, sounds positively archaic compared to the full sonic sound of "R&H," "Achtung," and pretty much every other thing they've done.

So I gather they went back and remastered their other biggest albums to bring them more in line with the quality of their later work. I only have the remastered "JT," but it is head and shoulders above the old CD. By way of example, when Bono sings "Under a black belly of cloud in the rain", you can hear Larry come in with the percussion and it really does sound like a thunderstorm coming over the hills.

If anyone in the UK has these and could send me a copy then I would be eternally grateful. I have lots of live DVD's to trade if needed.

Can I ask what the difference is? Is the gold version more clearer or something?
