Now featuring all-tube mastering by Chris Bellman
Mastered using Jennifer Warnes’ personal original analog master tapes
The Hunter was released five years after Jennifer Warnes‘ breakthrough with her critically acclaimed Leonard Cohen tribute, Famous Blue Raincoat. The Hunter is a varied affair that features songs from Todd Rundgren (“Pretending To Care”), The Waterboys (“The Whole Of The Moon”), Donald Fagen (“Big Noise, New York”), and mentor Leonard Cohen, who also guest appears on “Way Down Deep,” as well as some of her own original material.
Available once again by popular demand, the Grammy-nominated recording by Elliot Scheiner now features all-tube mastering by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering using Jennifer Warnes’ personal original analog master tapes. She also supervised the reissue throughout the process.
“Remastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering, the sonics are luscious. Warnes has always had an audiophile’s ear and was hands-on with this effort – one of the last from now defunct Cisco Records. It soars effortlessly, restoring warmth and delicacy, and easily besting the earth-bound but otherwise excellent CD. It’s an example of both an artist in full charge of her powers and analog art at its very best.” — Greg Cahill, The Absolute Sound
