Title: Reproducing old vinyl
Post by: keefergl on August 05, 2017, 11:48:12 pm
Is there any impetus into reproducing some of the old vinyl?  CDs and MP3s are okay but music is analog and not digital... Content is lost in the digitization process.

I agree, something remastered with nicer, fuller quality would be special! I guess it's just not in high enough demand for anything like that to happen as of now. Vinyl is like a whole 'nother experience when you combined it with the technology today- it's like you're really sitting there beside  John and the band.
The albums I would most like to see reproduced are American Fool, Uh-Huh, Scarecrow, Big Daddy and The Kid Inside...

Most of John's albums sound fabulous in their original vinyl and CD editions, remasters are a crap shoot regardless of whether it's analog or digital, some are an improvement and some are the complete opposite. I would love to see vinyl releases for Whenever We Wanted, Human Wheels, 98 S/T, Cuttin' Heads, and most of all ''Freedom's Road'' because the available CD of that one s is mastered way too loud, and is sorely lacking in dynamics, a downright shame for such a great album.
