Mastered by Chris Bellman at Bernie Grundman Mastering.

About the source material, Intervention Recorcords states on their website to have...

" [...] worked for months with Universal’s archive team, scouring the vaults in the US and UK for the best-sounding tapes . Several sets of tapes, including 1970s-era tape copies, were sent to mastering and evaluated by IR’s Shane Buettner and Chris Bellman.
The best-sounding tapes are 1/2″ safety copies from the 1990s A&M Safety Program. The “Wind of Change” and “Frampton” safeties are sourced from UK Production Masters, while the “Frampton’s Camel” safety is sourced from the Original Stereo Master. These tapes sound sensational, vibrant, detailed and alive."

And it shows. What a sound! Very balanced with warmth, and the famous vocoder effect which became the signature of the even more famous "Show me the way" really jumps out of the speakers.
This is so good that I am reconsidering buying this album only, to buy the two other Frampton remasters, although I do not know those albums.

IR never disappointed me anyway. I now know I can buy from them with closed eyes... and ears wide opened.
