Re: Chime in on my debate with AIX Records
As Andrew says, in a perfect world, more attention needs to be paid at the very beginning of the cd release. However, this brings into account what I`ve been talking about all along, if we had ONE format, (cd, sacd, dvd - a, whatever) that probably would be made MUCH easier. However, I would definitely buy an upgraded classic from back in the day, if there was significant improvement in the sound.
But Mark makes a good point, I`m sure all the 60s and 70s stuff, might be hard to reproduce to sound like today. But if he could do it, I would buy it!!
Example, I`m jazz, soul, some classical, gospel, and soundtracks. If Mark could do something with the CTI JAZZ/KUDU label, that would be great. First of all, the lps are recorded great, thanks to one of the best, Rudy Van Gelder and Creed Taylor. Early George Benson, Grover Washington Jr. Hubert Laws, Astrud Gilberto, even Diana Krall, the list goes on.
So, yeah Jerry, I would definitely do it. Mark, are you listening!!
