a nice end-of-year project: mastering “The Glass Bead Game” for vinyl at Baker Street.

Originally released on vinyl in 1986, The Glass Bead Game was Breathless’s first album. The original masters were unavailable, so I used the subsequent CD master as the basis for this release. I judged that the audio was slightly harsh and unsympathetic, so the whole album has been re-balanced and sounds great.

The new version will be available on Tenor Vossa Records in the next couple of months.
