REFUGEE, the brainchild of canadian songwriter / vocalist Myles Hunter, released "Affairs In Babylon" in 1985 after an initial indie release under the moniker MICHAEL FURY. You can read the story and get the album HERE
REFUGEE's "Affairs In Babylon" wasn't released on CD until 2005 by a german label.
Sadly, they didn't take as a source the original master tapes, just a wasted & scratched vinyl, and also gently destroyed the original signal noise peaks with a cheap processor.
That CD sounds terrible, a classic album like this deserves a better edition.
From a pretty good vinyl rip (courtesy of troynew, thanks my friend), I've tried to get the best audio quality possible, de-crackling, de-clicking and de-noising the full album.
To my ears, it sounds far better than the aforementioned german CD.
Tracks 1 & 2 are chained on the vinyl, I have left them as a single track to preserve continuity and avoid the typical mp3 gaps.
Anyway, included into the file, are both as separated tracks as well, you choose.
