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.
I'll admit that Deep Purple's Machine Head does sound great in DVDA.
