Real Life Rock Top 10 (12/27/19)

“Where for Music from Big Pink the Bob Clearmountain remix from last year found accents and textures that could make some songs sound not merely reissued but rediscovered, here the revision offers a thin, trebly, brittle sound. Single elements are brought out far too strongly, and all sense of ‘a mutual, joint-stock world,’ as Ishmael puts it in Moby-Dick, describing the essence of the Band’s sound more than a hundred years in advance, is wiped away.”


– GM on the reissue of The Band and more in the latest installment of Real Life Rock Top 10 (Los Angeles Review of Books)
