TYKETTO – Don’t Come Easy [Japan Ltd SHM-CD Mini-LP Remastered] *Exclusive*

After the recent Rock Candy remastered reissue of TYKETTO‘s classic “Don’t Come Easy”, many of you asked for the now out of print Japanese Ltd SHM Mini-LP remastered version to compare.
I am happy with both releases in terms of sound quality; the Rock Candy remaster is punchier and a little more bright, while the Japanese remastering is warmer in the mid-tones, with an excellent Dynamic Range.
As said, both are good: old-school ears will prefer this SHM-CD, unfortunately out of print and sold at ridiculous numbers on eBay.
