Enter Nothing but the Beat in the "Artiest of titel" box. I did not realize that the Van reissues were AAA - it would be really nice if someone could come up with a master list as the vast majority of reissues, I presume, are from digital sources.
Great List I bought the regular Blue Note reissue, and I went through 4 copies that were all new They look like some kid had them since the 60s and took nominal care. Anyway, I really think that album is amazing, but I'm looking forward to getting a bunch of those.
I know it isn't in print any longer, but do you feel the Intervention version is as good or better? Example- Blue Train. It does sound wonderful though. Watch a two hour movie chick flick with my wife or a 2 hour you tube video on records? Tommy sounded fantastic! I'd love to have another 2 hour video on random records from your collection and the stories behind them. Thank you so much. Your comments on video in regards to the microphone drop during the Neil Young song reminded me of your review of the brilliant Vandersteen Sevens:.
At one point, in the right channel, someone knocks over a microphone stand. When the song ended, John Atkinson, who'd heard this track many times but had never before heard the noise, asked about it. I'd known about that mistake and had heard it through other speakers, but through the Sevens it was obvious, unmistakable, almost three-dimensional.
Unfortunately, that Costello title has been out of print for about 3 years. It is fantastic, however. Really looking forward to watching this. BUT it would be great to see what your classical choices would be. I know you don't consider yourself to be a "classical expert", but who cares? In fact that is precisely the reason your opinions would be interesting. Obviously there are the usual suspects Living Stereo, Mercury -- and I happen to prefer the Classic Records reissues to the AP versions but maybe there are some less obvious ones too.
So I finally watched this -- the 2 hours flew by -- and clearly this is going to cause serious damage to my wallet, and saw that you are going to do a classical list. Looking forward to what you come up with. I do have a question re. How do you think the two compare? Michael, first thank you for the list and all your other contributions. But I have to disagree on one item. The reason is that the bass is basically inaudible. And it is important to the music. In the cd reissue, the bass sounds great.
So unfortunately I traded in my analog spark copy and got a European one which was most likely made from the cd, because again the bass is great. Is it pure analog? But being faithful to the original medium and artist intentions should NOT mean being faithful to the mistakes of the past as well.
After listening to the Overture from Tommy as played through your vinyl reproduction system, I then listened to every digitally mastered version of the original Overture that I own.
The digital versions, including the "high resolution" ones, all sounded very similar to each other. None sounded like the vinyl playback. Since all these were played back through the same electronics at the same measured level - at least as close as I could make it with the Faber Acoustic SoundMeter app in my iPad - I have to conclude that the mastering is different between the original vinyl and the more recent digital versions.
I can't believe that as good as Mikey's set-up is, it can perform magic and put information, especially the right information, back into playback. It can only color and distort the original or, more likely, minimize any degradation of the sound available on the disc.
The same is true for the gear and the process used to add the music to the video. There's obviously more and better musical information on the vinyl. QED, MF! The MF does not represent Michael's initials, although certain people might argue the point.
The vinyl plain sounds better. By better, I mean more realistic. At least realistic in the context of a studio recording. I'm not pointing a finger at any technology here. But, I do think that it shows, again, how really good pieces of musical art got "re-interpreted" when they were digitized for sale on CD and so on. Maybe the reinterpretation wasn't so great. So we all lost a couple generations of music? What's the big deal?
I guess it's important to remember that for most people in the recorded music chain, this is all just a product like shampoo, breakfast cereal, or prescription drugs. That all tells me that the best source of high quality archived musical art is vinyl. Tape may be better, but it degrades at a faster rate than vinyl and isn't very accessible or available. Digital technology may even be superior to what's possible with vinyl, but garbage in, garbage out as they say. If you want to compare Tommy on vinyl to a digital release, try using one of the CDs released in the s.
Before the mids, CDs were mastered with as much dynamic range as possible to show off the new technology. It still won't sound as good as the vinyl, but it will be a lot closer.
I think one of my CD's is from before It's been ripped onto a hard drive, so I'd have to go look for the actual CD and case to be sure. Digital playback can suck in many ways and the overall development hasn't really been pursued to the degree necessary for best performance. I think a lot of that is because enough of the associated people really believe that the little details don't matter and that it's already good enough.
It's funny how some of those same engineers wouldn't ignore those same details in a telecommunications system - audio just is viewed with disdain for some reason. Also, too many people in the "creative" part of the production process seemingly have little or no interest in making music sound like people singing or playing instruments.
It shows. Could that be part of why the record biz ain't what it once was? Check out these 51 sought-after records and get searching.

The album, which has since been reissued, was panned by the critics and a limited number of LPs were pressed.
Slideshow continues on the next slide. However, certain records are worth a pretty penny. Have a look out for mono copies of the King's debut album. You're looking for a gram blue vinyl copy not hard to spot with a 6-eye label. Columbia switched to a 2-eye label in , making the former versions more valuable.
