Remasters

Postby Riverman on Thu Jun 05, 2003 8:37 pm

I think I asked this at The Other Place once upon a blue moon, so let's see what folks here think. With all the stellar-sounding reissues out there, which album/s would you most like to see remastered, that hasn't/haven't been yet?

Mine..

Rush, Presto (Where's the low end? What low end?)
Steve Morse Band, The Introduction
Pink Floyd, Meddle
King's X, Gretchen Goes to Nebraska
The Talking Heads, Remain in Light
Fairport Convention, Liege & Lief

And I'll add Exposure by that guy Fripp, mainly because I'd like to be able to hear the original vinyl mix on CD. Heck - I'd like to able to hear the original mix, period.

The only one on your list that I would like to hear is Meddle, but then I remembered I own a remastered version of it already. It appeared as part of the Shine On box set during the early 1990s. Great album.

Thinking out loud, I'd like to see:

Brian Eno minatures/remasters
Pengiun Cafe Orchestra remasters (their CDs need it - but then I'm only one who cares)
Steve Hackett's early albums get a decent CD transfer
Van der Graaf Generator/Peter Hammill re-issues (some of Hammill's stuff is out of print)
All of RF's EG catalogue get a work over (in fact, it would be nice to see all of the EG catalogue ressurrected too - like having the Bruford CDs released in the UK for the first time)

Over to the rest of you,

Darren

The first Robert Moog album.
Jethro Tull, Stormwatch (have they fixed that one yet?).

The first 3 Asia discs (Asia, Alpha and Astra). Good call Bran....I recall seeing mini-lp style versions of these a few years back, but they were not remastered, just re-packaged.

U2- Boy and October.

Everything else I can think of has been given the "re" treatment.

Songs From the Weird

Postby Riverman on Thu Jun 05, 2003 10:30 pm

Yeah, I'd wondered why the 'Essential Fripp & Eno' disc was gone over with a 20-bit comb, but the albums themselves never were. It just ain't right.

The last batch of JT rereleases ended with Songs from the Wood. If they keep going, that one's next. (I've always thought Stormwatch was unfairly overlooked..)

I would love to see Japan's material remastered. Some of their cds sound absolutely awful. They're so obscure, however, that I'm afraid I may be waiting for a very long time...

Asia and Alpha have been cleaned up and given bonus tracks, but Astra remains the lonely one. It had something to do with sales, and the lack of Steve Howe, I guess.

The Brand X albums are desparately in need of a good scrub.

I hear ya about Presto, R-Man. It sounded awful even at the time it was first released.

Bruford

VDGG/Hammill

Robert Fripp

Gong Which Virgin is, in fact, doing! :D
