There's 2 CD albums I have which I'd like to sit down and compare one of these fine days, BUT I only have the vinyl of one album.
That is, Simon & Garfunkel Bridge over trouble waters. I have the CBS Mastersound gold CD of this and its supposed to the very best CD re-issue. The other album is Carole King Tapestry album, also on CBS Mastersound, but sadly I've yet to acquire the original vinyl. This one, I may not bother buying the vinyl. I found the CD entirely satisfying. The US pressed CD reissue of the same title comes close to the Mastersound..very close.
I know I may have some vinyl albums that beat the CD re-issue hands down. One clear example is Carly Simon No Secrets, which the CD re-issue is absolutely CRAP!. Frankly I don't know what WEA label are doing..its so inferior!
Other LP's I have in both formats are Elton John Greatest Hits (on DCC label), Eagles Greatest Hits, Bee Gees Spirits Having Flown, some Ray Conniff, Mantovani Strauss Waltzes, Dave Brubeck Greatest hits, Olivia Newton John (various albums), The Carpenters (aka tukang kayu??) and many more.
I found this gem today..NOPE!..NOT the record!..but the CD..DOUBLE DISK..price?..you wouldn't believe it!.

Smashing!! How much?
So which one sounds better? the vinyl or the CD?
Haven't tested yet, but guessing the CD will sound more digital.
