As Good As It Gets

CJ's Review

Another outing for the Emmett Grogan Acetates. This is an attempt to put all of Grogan acetates onto disc. Previous incarnations having ignoed the H61 sessions material presumably on the basis that they are mostly the takes used on the official relese, but bringing the acetates together as an historical item is a valid project. Recording quality is usperb, clear cutting definition, full dynamics and tonal separation, comparing very favourably with the officially released tracks. The disc is topped up with additional outtake material from the Another Side and times sessions.
