Hi Surferbee, for years i ve said jan and dean on vinyl along with jan mono production, has to be the best way to hear them, never been a cd fan, i ve wanted second wave on an lp, jan is on the same level,as phil spector, and brian wilson, and he doesnt get any credit in the music world.
DON'T YOU JUST KNOW IT / Lossless audio

One of the minor themes in this message board over the years has been the way Jan and Dean's music has lost out as a result of compression issues on CDs and streaming. I had and still have almost all the vinyl albums and singles but inevitably I moved to CD and now most often listen when driving around using Apple music. (I have uploaded all my collection including the Collectors series that obviously did not have a commercial release.

The distinction between the rich and deep vinyl versions and the CDs etc is stark. Apple now have 'lossless' audio and I listened today to the Dead Man's Curve album using this. I wondered if anyone else had tried it?

It still doesn't match vinyl but I would say it improved the sound quality. Maybe it was wishful thinking - I hope not.

We were hoping for a digital version of Second Wave without the compression loss. Dare we hope that this will happen and that better still all Jan's productions will have a decent rerelease. Maybe a digital box set?

From what Mark said on FB. We really donít know yet. Thereís no specific date of release. Hopefully soon
It looks as though the book launch has been delayed. Amazon UK were saying end of March - now July.
