Have to say that guitar sound on recent Hammersmith 1975 broadcast (BBC November 09) suffers from what must be Brian's worst ever guitar live sound; fizzy, scratchy, dominating and less that dynamic. The acual playing is SUPERB but I must say that the remastering job should really have addressed the guitar sound
Comparing original We Will Rock You (Montreal) to Live in Montreal the guitar sound is much improved on the later
The '80s sound (for me) is much improved
Any thoughts..

Thank you VERY MUCH. I thought I'm crazy or deaf so I'm glad that I'm not the only one who thinks the guitar sounds terrible :-) The original radio broadcasts feature an almost perfect guitar sound so it's a messed-up remastering
