DOUBLETAKE – So Many Roads (1993) – One of the rarest and sought after CD’s on the planet gets a much-deserved re-issue by Retrospect!

Wouldn't mind the Silent Rage if the remastering is a big improvement.

Hey Rock!

I personally remastered the CD and think it sounds WAY better than the original -- but thats my humble opinion! Would be interested to know what people think of my remastering job.... :)

Rock On,

Retrospect's Recordjnky
