Rega - A Bend In The River
Very beautiful LP with 8 selected tracks - this compilation features exceptional quality in terms of recording and interpretation. A must for every music lover!
This LP by Gary Bennett was engineered by Rega's own Roy Gandy, and the sound quality of this recording is outstanding. Recorded in Roy's studio, a converted barn, there is plenty of room for every instrument to open up, creating a large well defined soundstage, but with an intimate perspective. The arrangements were made with an eye towards simplicity, deconstructed and re-interpreted to allow for ease of recording. There is a stunning vibrancy and immediacy to every track, many of which were recorded in a single live take!
A nice gatefold cover was also produced for this vinyl LP.
All songs arranged by Gary Bennett.
Recorded between June 2006 and July 2008.
Engineered by Roy Gandy and Gary Bennett.
Cut by Ray Staff at Air Mastering.
Technical assistance by Terry Bateman & Michael Stops.
Cover art and layout by Simon Webster.
With this exquisite selection of carefully picked musical pieces Gary Bennett has dedicated himself to the experience of true emotions. He created a musically and sonically exceptional compilation supposed to give you pure audio enjoyment. We wish you a pleasant time while listening.
The best sound is achieved by the use of L'Art du Son LP cleaner before playing.
