I'm sure that TOP sounds terrific on your system. Do you own any of the Japanese CD remasters of their early albums? Well worth the extra bucks, in my experience.
@whipsaw I still play my original LPs, and recently picked up a little collection of CDs called TOP Original Album Series. Put out by Rhino, who are pretty reliable, but there is no information as to any remastering that may have been done. Will I look for the Japanese issues? Begs the question, What is Hip? 🤣
I have the Back to Oakland version remastered by Isao Kikuchi in 2015, and it is the best that I have heard.
