Of course if the intent is to recreate the original mix as closely as possible, that's a bit of a gray area, but unless there was something technically seriously wrong with the original 2-track master apart from the mix itself, it's hard to see why one would do that. Typically the goal when doing a new mix is to improve on the original, not just mimic it as best as you can. I feel the fans of the 40th anniversary series could call those good reissues but not necessarily good remasters. Not saying they aren't well mastered, but given that those exact mixes have never been to my knowledge heard with different mastering, there hardly is a good point of reference.

 

Well, since I mentioned it, since some of the tracks originate from the 2-track master tapes, and have therefore not been remixed but only remastered, comparing those to previous CD issues would be a fair comparison. If someone has done such a comparison, it might be interesting to hear your findings, even if only out of curiosity more than anything else. This reminds me I actually have to get the debut album on vinyl at some point…

the difference between the original cd of the album discipline and the 40th anniversary remaster is incredible. The remaster is much much better. The other albums have noticeable differences but they did an amazing job on discipline and really needed it i think. Im listening to it now - man that track "thela hun gingeet" is so good!

Ok so someone new to all of this how do the 30th anniversary series compare to the 40th?. I was looking to pick up Red  and In the Wake of Poseidon. I've seen both listed.

The remix of Aqualung is damn good, and yes, he did remix Larks...


currently listening to:

Wow, this album is amazing on the modded Q701. Great bass and actually quite the amazing soundstage and imaging going on here. The vocals are dead center and have very good depth to them. I've heard the album a few times before, but this is the first time on my Q701 since I modded it. 


Some old school Metallica. I haven't listened to them in a loooong time.

I love U2s early classic period ending around Joshua tree. This later period U2 has some haters out there for it's song choice and inclusion of remixes...but not having their later stuff...I  find this a great listen...some beautiful songs.

Live 2 is as enjoyable as 1, the interviews included are an audio time capsule.  The live recordings give an insight into the musical ability of this band.  Live shows after 1964 were generally so loud they couldn't hear themselves sing or play.  The cover versions played here showed the varied influences which made this band so unique at the time - Country, Rock and Blues.  Everly Brothers, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Carl Perkins, Elvis Presley and Chuck Berry.  A lot of groups came and went on that show but most who heard them recalled what set The Beatles apart was the country influence on their sound.

 

Most of the cuts are very clean. The attempt to hit the guitar feedback on "I Feel Fine" (fresh and discovered by accident in early takes in studio would later revolutionize a genre of music) gives a glimpse into the perfectionism that became the hallmark of their later audio recordings. 

 

Played live on air, no karaoke here, maybe Eminem could try that the next time he's on SNL, if there is a next time.  At least Lana Del Rey gave it a real try on air.

Great Modern Classical album James Blackshaw and Lumbomyr Melnyk: The Watcher

This album was written in 6 hours as most of the writing was done spontaneously.
