Preferred mix for Heart of the Congos?

Post by Icy Mike » Fri Nov 30, 2007 12:02 pm

I am about to purchase The Congos - "Heart of the Congos" and would
like to know which is the preferred mix. Which is best, Blood and Fire
or VP?

I got the Blood and Fire version on vinyl. The sound is good (lo-fi of course, but that's what you want a lee perry recording from the 70ies for.. :madgrin: ). I never compared it to the vp version. but in the cd version blood&fire has one more tune and an extra cd with bonus tracks. plus they put effort into a remastering and wrote some intelligent liner notes. so i think you should get the blood&fire version (no they don't pay me for saying this..)

blood & fire ... d=BAFCD009
released in 1996


vp ... r=VP1287.2
released in 1993
