 fuzz and boom September 23, 2015 By burton l. (los angeles, CA) See All My Reviews "I listened to the Dance of the Comedians in a good sounding studio on two sets of excellent speakers. As the headline says, fuzz and boom. I am surprised that the producer let this get released. Perhaps it was early digital recording that is at fault. When you listen to this CD, if you still choose to buy it, please post what you think of the sound. Most everything else I play in the studio sounds fine. So, do you hear fuzz and boom?" Report Abuse
