I had noticed it before, but never really bothered to look into it until now, but my CD copy of the Clones of Funkenstein has some terrible hiss on a few of the tracks. Particularly “I’ve Been Watching You” has just an astounding amount of hiss throughout the entire track. I’m not familiar enough with different hiss to be able to identify the source of the hiss. It doesn’t really sound like hiss that would have resulted from being sourced from vinyl or somn but I’m not sure. I was trying to work out which issue my copy is via comparing it to issues on Discogs but most of them don’t have any pictures, and I can’t seem to find any date on mine other than '76 which obviously is only when the album was released on vinyl, not the CD print date.
Anyways, just wondering if anybody else’s copy is like this/if anyone knows what the hissing is from. Also wondering if this problem is issue-specific or if all issues have this problem.
I’m also wondering if other Parliament-Funkadelic releases (particularly CD releases) have notoriously good or bad prints that you know of, or if there is any sort of documenting of this kind of thing somewhere.
Any info/insight on any of this is appreciated.
