Pressed On 180 Gram Vinyl And Housed In A Six-Panel Gatefold Sleeve
Live At The Apollo, Volume II by James Brown and The Famous Flames was originally released in August 1968. A follow-up to the original 1963 album, Live at The Apollo, it too was recorded in at the Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York City.
The original album and the 1987 CD release were both edited versions of the show while the 2xCD Deluxe Edition released in 2001 featured a more expanded live set including a 19-minute version of “It’s a Man’s Man’s Man’s World.”.
About These Abbey Road Half-Speed Masters:
These releases will offer a superior vinyl experience with Half-Speed Mastering from Abbey Road. They have been exclusively re-mastered at Half Speed to bring you a new level of depth and clarity.
This limited edition range, all pressed on 180-gram vinyl, come in deluxe packaging. The initial releases are all iconic deluxe edition titles from great Universal artists – Amy Winehouse, The Who, James Brown, Marvin Gaye and Mike Oldfield.
The albums were cut from high-resolution digital transfers from the best-known analogue tapes by Abbey Road mastering engineer Miles Showell, one of the foremost practitioners of this artisan process in the world today. Only minimal sympathetic equalization was applied to the transfers to keep everything as pure as possible. Also, as these are vinyl-only releases, Miles did not apply any digital limiting. This is added to almost all digital releases to make them appear to be loud and is responsible for the so-called “loudness war” and in almost every case is anything but natural and pure sounding.
