Please feel free to mail me any updates that you may have! Thanks. ------------------------------------------------------------------------ THE GUNS N ROSES CD REVIEW 8/10/92 Each CD tries to include the following information: 1. Title 2. company/location 3. songlist 4. sound quality rating Quality ratings are as follows: Excellent (EX, EX+, EX-): Studio-quality CD; very crisp and clear; vocals easily understood; instruments strong and clear; soundboard mixed; Very Good (VG, VG+, VG-) Close to studio quality; some sound interference; vocals and instruments fade out at times; some feedback and echoing may be present. sound mixing may be muffed in some places poor Any CD recording that does not rank above VG- is considered to be poor; usually a poor rating of a CD show would be equivalent to an audience taped bootleg; a poor recording may not have been taken from a soundboard, or may have used a poor quality master tape. Very few non-soundboard bootlegs can rate higher than VG. a poor quality sounding CD is characterized by one or more of the following: incomprehensible lyrics; muffled sound for extended periods of time; poor dubbing between songs; incomplete songs; instruments being played not easily distinguishable; show not taped in stereo; overbearing crowd noise that washes out the music; pops, splices, and/or gaps that break the sound continuity of the concert if a Sound Quality rating does not appear, that means I haven't heard the CD myself- I'm very picky about CD quality, so if I give it an EX it deserves it; conversely, it the quality sucks I won't hesitate to give it a poor rating as well. mail any updates you have have to fierro@uts.amdahl.com- for a CD please include the following info: 1) name of CD as it appears on cover 2) name of manufacturer and country 3) date of show(s) 4) all tracks on the CD 5) (optional) sound quality rating, using above guidelines Don't be ripped off!!!
