UK Music Magazine THE WORD mentioned my Kenny Everett on Radio London post! I noticed that in the comments the first comment says, “And no amount of remastering can make “Strawberry Fields Forever” sound as good as it does on here.”
This is because Radio London was spinning one of these:
An original hot-as-fuck (mix and compression-wise) 45 RPM mono single of Strawberry Fields. Sounds way better than even the new remasters, because the new ones are relatively flat captures of the mono mixes. This guy has an INSANE collection of these radio promo 45s, too! Nothing beats the sound of these things, it’s almost like rock music was made to be mixed for AM radio! Check out a favorite of mine, I Want To Take You Higher by Sly & The Family Stone. It SLAYS any CD version.
Stay tuned, I have lots more Radio London and Radio Caroline mp3s, I’ll drop another! I wasn’t aware of the interest!
