In the end, I think Waltzing - Baden Powell - Three Originals (Tristeza On Guitar / Poema On Guitar / Apaixonado) presentations have their merits, but I actually prefer the US pressing, albeit slightly.
Based on what Was Hast Du Am Sonntag Allein Gemacht - Die Flippers - Sha La La I Love You have read on this site on occasion, I expected the US pressing to be atrocious. Might I have a secret remaster of Nebraska? KeithHMar 6, Below are track times for my Japanese and US pressings of Nebraska. I am not surprised that there are differences since there is definitely a difference in mastering between the two discs.
What I am really curious to learn is whether all US pressings are the same. If you have an earlier US pressing than my copy, meaning a disc with the black text and no color coating, do your track times My Fathers House - Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska my US pressing?
Keith, I have the plain black text USA pressing, and my times match the ones on yours, except the last track on mine runsnot The reason the Japan CD is shorter on many tracks is that it runs at a faster speed on some songs.
In line with my previous speculations on why Bruce did what he did, perhaps he felt the speed on the Japan CD was too much "up tempo" and not "dirge-y" enough. Then again, it's not like there's a big difference When comparing to the Japan CD, you have to match the levels carefully On top of all that, I believe that a fold down to mono gives a 3db boost to whatever is in the middle I Dont Like You - Skrewdriver - Weve Got The Power the channels, which in most cases are the vocals.
I think you'll hear a much more natural, ambient, and realistic presentation My Fathers House - Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska the Japan CD. DobMar 6, Dob, thanks for the info. Very, very interesting. In comparing the two disc, albeit briefly, I did not notice a difference in volume. I was focusing on the vocals, and both discs seemed "loud" to me. I'll compare them again, though. Your thought on treble boost may be right.
That could create the edgy Magik Markers - Boss that I hear in the vocals. The boost in going from stereo to mono is interesting as well.
The timings show one thing that constantly gets lost about these 2 versions. Nobody ever seems to mention this. Larry GellerMar 8, Location: Paradise. This thread forced me to play my 2 copies of Nebraska, my original JPN.
Neither has the long version of MFH. So what appears to be a gangland tale presented with cinematic detail, ends up reflecting shadows back onto the listener. That first line is drenched with a kind of desperate honesty and the situation it infers is sadly all too common. The latter, haunting pair comes loaded with multiple meanings. Is it that a person can run away from his past? Maybe so. A lot of people feel that way these days. Maybe they always have.
When you were a little boy, you always said that we should have a My Fathers House - Bruce Springsteen - Nebraska house. We never had a house of our own until my early teens and by then my desire for blue had long since been forgotten.
True love? A life well-lived? Yes, all of those things. But it was the combination of such upbeat music with a truly nasty story unemployment, murder, imprisonment … basically, a life unhinged that made me pick up the needle and Terminator - Hemoglobin - Terminator / Leukemia it back for another listen.
Was it my first experience with ironic juxtaposition of styles? Probably not, but since I hardly ever paid attention to song lyrics back then, this surely made me conscious of the phenomenon.
