This I can't wait for. Strange Universe is my favorite album . Child Of The Novelty was the first thing I ever heard by Mahogany Rush, and I was hooked forever. That was in 1974 when it was first released in the USA. I heard Maxoom last of these three, and always loved it also. I am very partial to "classic" Mahogany Rush.

I did have a question! On my BigBeat records remasters of the first 3, there was some "noise" at the beginning of the song "Look Outside" from Child...were the tapes used for those remasters the same ones Frank just used?
Frank used tapes that no one else has access to. BigBeat probably went straight from vinyl.

Hi Willy,

Sorry to bother you with one more question but i´m confused.
You wrote.

Thank you Frank for allowing me this honor. Onto IV, What's Next, World Anthem, Live, Tales of the Unexpected, Power of Rock and Roll, Juggernaut etc. Those have master tapes and can be remixed as well! Oh goody!

And this is Franks reply when i asked him about remastering and remixing the Columbia albums.You can find it in the Answer forum (Columbia albums)

Sony will never release all that stuff again unless and until I get real popular. How likely is that? With companies like that it's a "big" numbers thing. Plus, they can never re-mix them cuz the 24 track masters are all destroyed. The best you'll ever get is the two-track re-mastered. That's why I had hoped for the original anthology (the three CD set), cuz it had almost 95% of the old stuff. all re-mastered by myself.

Does the master tapes to the Columbia albums exist or not :?: i sure hope that Frank is the liar here.I also hope that Jim West will be able to release them on the just just a minute label one day as well as the unreleased Nanette Workman album with Frank and Jimmy Ayoub.Have you heard any songs from that one by the way?

An album with Nanette Workman? That would be interesting... for those of you not familiar with her, she was rather popular in Quebec in the 70's, and appears on Sister Change (I believe), off Tales of the Unexpected.

Willy, there is a note in the liner notes that the Big Beat cd's were remastered from original tapes on loan from someone named Len Jones and that they were "remastered from original analogue tapes"

I was just curious if these were in fact the same tapes...the Repertoire cd releases were from a vinyl source..I know that for a fact because I wasted money on those :x

Aren't a 'master tape' and a 'multi track tape' two different things? At least here in Finland we call the final two track mix a 'master tape' and the 'multi track tape' is the one which can be remixed.

Frank should clear this up when he sees the thread. I am pretty sure that all of the Columbia masters do exist, he just wishes they didn't perhaps, since his "differences" with the major label. I think SDony/Columbia would have to pay Frank to re-mix them and they probably won't. We can wish though.

Frank's remaster of these 3 were from his own copies that no one else has. If I am wrong, Frank will clear it up.
