Steve Perry's Street Talk Revisited

10/07/2011
.
Former Journey frontman Steve Perry's solo debut "Street Talk" is getting the reissue/remaster treatment. We were sent the following:

Nearly three decades after its initial release in 1984, Street Talk, the debut solo album from Journey lead singer Steve Perry, has been meticulously remastered for a new generation of rock fans who are rediscovering the sonic wonders of vinyl.

The RIAA double-platinum classic, featuring the #1 single "Oh Sherrie" (and follow-up hits "Foolish Heart," "I Believe," "She's Mine" and "Strung Out") will be available as an audiophile 180-gram LP in original artwork, starting November 1, 2011, through Columbia/Legacy, a division of SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT. The LP will also come with an exclusive free bonus download of the specially mastered-for-vinyl digital files.

As many long time fans remember, STREET TALK was one of the most successful albums of the original MTV era. The classic video for "Oh Sherrie" - in which Steve lampoons the high-concept video making that was popular at the time - became a memorable touchstone on its own, marking one of the first times an artist broke the standard album-version formula of early MTV. Two other videos, "Foolish Heart" and "Strung Out" followed, with Perry showing his varied roots namely Soul and Rock music as well as poking fun at the industry that was rapidly making him a household name.

For the new remastering, Steve worked at long-time industry standard The Mastering Lab in Ojai, CA using the original master tapes with engineer Robert Hadley to achieve what he feels is the definitive vinyl version of the album.

"I started with a pristine 24bit/96khz transfer of the original stereo mix and went from there. We used Pro Tools to bring out some of the subtle frequencies and moments in the original mixes that, in the old world of live analog hands-on console mixing would get compromised. Now we can take our time and really make the original tracks shine. This hybrid of analog and digital is, in my opinion, the wave of the future. The vinyl pressings also sound fantastic! The RTI pressing plant really knows how to take the lacquers we created and press some amazing audiophile-quality vinyl. I truly feel like this is the way this album was supposed to sound!" Steve Perry
