If you want a good sounding release of this album, grab a copy.
Every other version can be thrown away without even looking back.

Hands down, this is THE best sounding version of Californication on vinyl. Make no mistake about it.

This remaster is WAY better than the CD and the previous vinyl editions. There are a few changes to the mix of a few of the songs that may put some people off, but after several spins I think I prefer these versions... what I wonder is if the band had any input into this, or if these were just mistakenly added during the remixing, or mistakenly removed during the original mixing and restored here?

I remember hearing a lot of these "added vocals" on the 'unmastered' version of Californication that leaked several years back, which also sounded better (less compressed) than the store-bought CD, had a completely different running order, and bonus tracks "Fat Dance" and "How Strong" included.

Anyway, here are the changes I've noticed from the 'original' CD and this newly remastered vinyl:

Californication - synth line added after intro like the version on "Greatest Hits."
Easily - extra "eeeeasily/aaaaahh" vocals towards the end that are present on 'unmastered' version.
Savior - extra "all in a hand" vocals that are present on 'unmastered' version.
Right On Time - Count in at start removed.

Definitely better than the CD, but I agree that it's still far from the sonic fidelity of Blood Sugar Sex Magik or Stadium Arcadium (but that's a problem with the recording of the voice: at least the instruments in this edition DO sound alive and not squashed).

This LP sound better than the CD (which is a real victim of loudness war, with snares and hi-hats which are nothing more than crackling noises.)
Altough its better, it sounds like there's a plastic coffee cup over the microphone or the tweeter. Can't enjoy listening to it, Don't know if it's just my copy, or it's their idea of good music.

Hasn't this also been remastered by Chris Bellman like the 2012 One Hot Minute Reissue (http://www.discogs.com/Red-Hot-Chili-Peppers-One-Hot-Minute/release/3643369)? If yes, there's some important information missing for this release.
