    Huh! I didn't know there were cassette remasters. I bet they sound great!

    My gosh, weren't those released around 2000 or so? I can't imagine not having them, hell, the improved clarity of the intro to Women in Love alone makes all 6 worth it. I think they're fantastic.



    Ok, well, remastered cassettes is a new one to me. I just saw that.

    Actually, I think I should add one thing. It really depends how you listen to your music. I've still got a full stereo with large traditional speakers set up for surround sound. If you listen to your music only on an ipod or in an old car with 2 speakers not working or on tiny old computer speakers then of course there's no point in trying to get any extra quality out of the music. To me it seems like buying an mp3 of a remastered song or album for example is like buying a diet Twinkie. Totally pointless.

    I wonder if the split between VH and WB means that Ed can't stop the Hagar-era titles from being remastered? #1 remaster on my list is OU812. That album would be so much better remastered.

    HaHa, not a thing, I commented on your post while you were editing it, so I deleted mine. I said the same thing you did about the cassettes.

    It really needs a remix AND remaster. Check out Pearl Jam's Ten rerelease. One disc was a remix/remaster, the other just a remaster.

    I'm such a collector and music nerd that I would have bought them even if they sounded the same just to have all the restored art and images. But like I said, I think they're a major improvement as do all the people I know who own them. There was a time after the first "best of" came out that I had a hard time going back to the full CDs after hearing those songs remastered, it was like listening to them through a pillow. Lifeless.

    You are missing out Johnny. VHII is so much better remastered. I think that is the best out of the 6 that improved sound wise. Anyone agree?
