You Don't Fuck About With Perfection
I read last week that they are re- releasing The Trinity Session by the Cowboy Junkies on vinyl. Fair enough I thought, there will be a demand for such a classic album but is it really necessary to put it on red vinyl, if there was ever an album that needed the coloured vinyl treatment least I think it is the Trinity Session, it's not that kind of record, it's not flashy and I don't think that it will entice anybody to purchase it who wouldn't have anyway. Then I read further that the album has also been remastered! Why the fuck would you do that? A big part of the charm of the original is the fact that it was recorded using just one microphone live in the church, it gives the record that intimate, confessional feel that gripped me in the first place. It was the sort of thing that you could have witnessed and recorded yourself. There is also absolutely no need to put it on two pieces of vinyl either
When the fuck will record companies stop fucking about with perfect records.
