Default Re: Chime in on my debate with AIX Records

Both of these discs are far better than the over compressed stuff issued before. I think I saw another thread on another site where Dr. Waldrep after getting it as a present, took the Love DVD down to his studio on Christmas day to listen to it on the "good equipment" and I bet he was supprised at how good the sound was on those master tapes from almost 40 years ago. There is a lot of old material that I would gladly buy again if it was reissued in a HiDef format.
EXACTLY. That is what I`m saying, and it seems David is also. hile the old master tapes are made and done, some of the high rez recordings of material does sound great. Well, we can only wait to see if Mark has a shift in his thinking after listening to the disc.
