I finally had a chance to listen to this Saturday night. It is a long story, but due to a move my system was down for a LONG time. I'm up again! I had just finished listening to Fogerty's latest LP - "Wrote a Song for Everyone" - which I can recommend for the music, but not so much for the recording, which is affected by digititus. (You know, that afflication that results from over-exposure to PCM). I needed more John Fogerty, and finally rolled this tape. My, what an achievement! I've known this album for a long time, and there were layers I have never heard before - I have newfound regard for Tom Fogerty's rhythm guitar, for example. Afterwards, I played the very fine SACD of Cosmo's Factory - while very good it lacked the extra depth and presence found in this tape. My tape front end is a stock Technics RS1520, which is switchable to the IEC curve, and I can only imagine what this sounds like with a better front end.
