Spirit based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Both Spirit and Teatro are probably Willie's most intimate recordings, but there is a feeling in Spirit that is lacking in Teatro. Daniel Lanois is a masterful producer, but his production on Teatro distracts from the immediacy that is so sweet in Spirit, just Willie with his guitar up front with sparse backing by his guests, it's just gorgeous. Teatro, by contrast, loses that immediacy with a much too prominent rhythm section, the drums and precussion are just too loud and drown out Willie's wonderful guitar playing. I'd love to hear a remastering of Teatro with Willie more up front.
