Ron's Piece:
"This piece was specially composed for Ron to play on his saxophone in orbit and was to become the first musical piece played and recorded in space. Ron was so excited about this piece that he rehearsed it continuously in quarantine whilst preparing the mission. May the memory of my friend, the astronaut and the musician, Ron McNair live on through this music". Jean-Michel Jarre.

The original 2015 reissue pressing of Rendez-Vous (with matrix/runout A0102416645-0101 15), was made from a defective master with semitone pitch-bender faults on track 2 at around 16 seconds in with pitch changes and with the actual sound quality itself becoming slightly muffled. This fault occurs again around 3:52 and again at 5:23.
Sony Music subsequently issued a corrected master with matrix/runout A0102467490-0101 12 A00.
This is the corrected version.

    Can anyone confirm if this is the SAME MASTER SOURCE from latest remasters, or is this a record company last minute job to fix this mess, using the Scott Hull's Masterdisk MASTER SOURCE from 1997 with more loudness applied? Thanks.

      It has been said to avoid the Dave Dadwater remasters after finding that he has eroded the original dynamics for the sake of loudness.. the first release CD's seem to be the best for maintaining the integrity of the original recordings. Very sad that Jarre allowed his CD's to be remastered always louder and louder and louder each release.. the Dave Dadwater releases are the loudest of all. Avoid.
