What guitar pedals does Alex Lifeson use

2LP or CD or 2CD or 6CD + 2AudioBray + book box

Reissue / "New versions" created under Yoko Ono's supervision in 2021. As a CD (“Ultimate Mixes” of the songs, including the 3 non-album singles Give Peace A Chance, Cold Turkey, Instant Karma; the voice is more central, overall it seems very successful to me without having directly compared ). As a 2CD set, the 2nd contains outtakes / alternative versions of all songs, including the singles, often 1st or 2nd takes (with 20 pages booklet and poster, in a slipcase). As a 2LP, like the 2CD set, only without the singles, 180g. And as a 6CD / 2 audio BluRay box (plus 132-page hardcover book + poster), with additional (1 CD each) "Raw Studio-Mixes" (without sound effects), demos (home and studio), Jam excerpts during the sessions (mostly older R´n´R songs, but sometimes Beatles, just for fun, mostly short), long "evolution documentaries" of all songs (the development of the songs is made comprehensible, trial runs, discussions in the studio, gradual changes ...). "Elements Mix" of all pieces (highlighting certain instruments / vocals, the latter sometimes pure or missing, sounds completely different from time to time). (On audio BluRay) the parallel “Yoko Ono-Plastic Ono Band” album, complete for the first time / 3x as long, “Freeform jam sessions”. Okay, most of them will have the work, after all it is undisputedly his best, so the question is again (as was the case with Neil Young several times last): Do you need that? As I said, I really like the sound / mix. Otherwise, I'll concentrate on answering the (like the box limited) 2CD set (for many the most interesting alternative), the differences between the outtakes and the original versions. Mother: Much shorter, harder mixed, no bell, drums more in the foreground, the voice at the end not that extreme. Hold On: Duller, a little more guitar. I Found Out: At the beginning played through / without the pauses, after that the guitars are barely audible for a long time, it seems more “naked”, at the end different vocals. Working Class Hero: guitar accompaniment partly richer, melody partly varied, less drama at the end. Isolation: Organ is missing, the singing is (still) more emotional, no doubling of voices. Remember: Clearly shorter / less text, not so "hammering". Love: Completely different, acoustic guitar instead of piano, much slower, different atmosphere, singing more sensitive. Well Well Well: Running time almost halved, appears more naked, vocals less aggressive. Look At Me: more accentuated guitars, brighter, voice more emotional / “attacked”. With God and Mummy I hardly hear any differences. Even more so with the singles: Give Peace A Chance: Choir minimized, accompaniment much thinner, 1 minute longer. Cold Turkey: Totally different guitars, also far more variable / completely different sounds (partly funky played, not nearly as painful / cutting, 2 short psychedelic instrumental phases), rhythmically partly more agile / flexible. Also a little longer, less harsh screams at the end. Instant Karma: Subtle different character, somehow more down-to-earth. There are of course other sound / mix differences. On the edge: If you only have this LP and maybe Imagine, but not the singles: They are worth it on their own. After a cursory listening, it seems to me that there is also a lot of very interesting material on the box ...
