Subject: AWB New Box Set - "All the Pieces"

I just ordered the new box set "all the pieces". Outstanding. I already had all of AWB's albums and cd's and mainly purchased this for the previously unreleased material and the clover sessions. What surprised me the most was the quality of the CD's. The transfers must have been handling expertly b/c they are all outstanding.

I have thousands of cd's and albums and I still rank AWB's white album as one of the top 5 albums ever made by any artist. Interestingly, in high school I listened to ALL of AWB's music, but my favorites are: White album, Soul Searching, Cut the Cake, Shine, and Vol XIII. Those cd's have never grown old for me.

What I wanted to ask Hamish or Malcolm is this: There's a pretty big difference in the sound/feel of the songs from the Clover Sessions to what eventually became the White album. Is the difference in sound/quality mostly attributable to Arif Mardin's involvement? John
