      This is a gem if you can still find it. Excellent pressing with a very wide soundstage, library quiet, seems like you are in the room with the band. You get the warm vinyl feel with this one, this is a keeper!

        This is a solid tishoumaren album from Tinariwen, but it is not helped by the recording and mastering. Excessively close mic'ed and red-lined, at least on the vinyl edition, this is such a "hot" recording that it lacks perspective and atmosphere. The mics are practically down the mouth of the singers and guitarists. On the one hand, this creates a good rocking vibe, but I think the "in your face" perspective does not work optimally for this music which needs the ambience of the Sahel to fully convey its message. Moreover, the mastering has quite a bit of end of side distortion that manifests as a grainy sound. I played this on three different set-ups with different arms and cartridges (including a tangential tracking arm) and the end of side distortion is there on all three. I wonder if a careful remastering would not improve things somewhat?
