This incredible edition will directly zoom you into the true soul of our big MASTERCUT dream of producing the world's most authentic records. Even though the original tapes from these legendary sessions between 1964 and 1965 have candidly aged and matured with quite a few distinctly hearable "characteristics" like ticks, pops, and crackles, the listening experience is nevertheless mind-blowing. With this truly extraordinary lady singing and screaming, sounding like she is standing right next to you, touching and caressing your soul with her voice - this edition will definitely put a spell on you!!
