Thanks for the replies, but it's nothing to do with my set up. I just hate that muddied 2 track sound.
Yes, I know, that given the conditions the sound engineers worked miricles, and if you listen closely you can hear there were some wonderful renditions of many songs, and a lot of the rhythms originated in that studio will last as long as people want to listen to reggae music, but I'm afraid the recordings/pressings are hopeless to my ears at least.
It must be a Coxone thing though, as 'Sattamassaga' doesn't sound so bad to me. Same studio and equipment, different producer. I dunno.
