HUEY LEWIS & THE NEWS - Small World +3 [Japan UHQCD / MQA mini LP remastered] (2023) HQ *Exclusive* - full

The sweet 80s pop/rock sound of San Francisco’s HUEY LEWIS & THE NEWS has sadly gone silent in recent years due to its one-of-a-kind frontman’s battle with Ménière’s disease, which causes intermittent hearing loss. But a surprise new reissue campaign courtesy of Universal Music Group’s Japanese division promises the most comprehensive look at the band’s blockbuster catalogue.
These new remasters, expanded reissues are sourced from new DSD masters from original U.S. analog tapes, transferred in 24-bit high definition and feature CD-sized reprints of the original inner LP sleeves and Japanese obi strips, all pressed on high-fidelity UHQCD / MQA discs. The outer jackets have been replicated as well.
This reissue of 1988’s ”Small World” includes three bonus tracks, hard to find rare 12” versions / mixes.

On ”Small World” HUEY LEWIS & THE NEWS incorporated different flavors and influences. The group decided to stretch out, exploring rootsy American music like on “Bobo Tempo” and the bluesy “Old Antone’s”. Of course their trademark rock & pop is still present, and the bouncy “Perfect World” become a Top Ten hit single.
Another cool slab of pure ’80s music.
