I've yet to really consider buying LP re-issues. I'm skeptical about them. If its re-issue album, I'd rather opt for SACD instead...BUT I don't have SACD player yet.
I'm waiting for someone to lend me a Eric Clapton Slowhand re-issue Lp and compare to the Limited Edition one I bought in UK.

Oii!.. Rm180 new record woh!.. Tong Lee at Low Yat Plaza got stock there!.
Cheh!.. I play RM1 to 20 buck records only lah.. cheap skate am I?

Louder! Faster! Heavier!! ..sound like having sex! hahaahaaha!

That one flying from the kitchen ain't piring hitam.. STEEL PAN more like it! cool2.gif

There's a twist to re-issues. In those days, as soon as the recordings were done, the master tapes being fresh, sound quality would be optimum. Now!. its 20 years or more since the recording and only God knows how those tapes were stored and little to tell if deterioration had set in and how much restoration by digital means for a new LP issue.
So, its not definitive to say that its going to be the same sonic quality as the original pressings. Do remember most master tapes in those days are purely analog tapes. I've heard of many stories of master tapes lost to oblivion, never to be found, but found in some ex-engineer's garage..and so on.

We shall SAY NO TO RE-ISSUES from now on.

but is there any such case whereby a re-issue sounds better than the original version?

Smashing!! How much?
So which one sounds better? the vinyl or the CD?

I'm sure it will sound 'terangkat' like a Beryani gum, very ngam laugh.gif

You guys have fun this weekend ya... too bad I can't join you cry.gif

Well, worst sounding is one thing. Re-editing is much worst such as Michael Jackson's Thriller album. Re-issues such the latest 25th Anniversary version and some earlier version was censored on some tracks......and unfortunately one of them was BEAT IT !! Those who got the chance to listen to the originals Thriller knows what I'm talking about !!

Well then, Miles Davis Kind Of Blue was supposed to be better on the 200gram audiophile pressing due to they manage to play the analog master tape at the correct speed. Unlike the much earlier vintage version which the analog master tape was played faster than it should thus resulted higher pitching on most tracks......

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. smile.gif

I found this gem today..NOPE!..NOT the record!..but the CD..DOUBLE DISK..price?..you wouldn't believe it!.

Haven't tested yet, but guessing the CD will sound more digital.
Price = A plate of Nasi Beryani? drool.gif

Wah!..now its Amcorp Mall gathering.. If it happens, it'll improve "MY weekend PICNIC resort!". Meanwhile, I've always hung around with so many regular kaki there everytime. You fellows carry on if I'm pre-occupied with other friends, but I may join you all for some moments.
That Amcorp Mall place is quite a NOISY place (especially LG floor area) you know?. But thats where the bargains are.

March05, you're really sneaking in despite your seemingly tight schedules juggling between quality time and family ya?. smile.gif

You might want to find your Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music soundtrack LP?.

Mary Poppins...must get it, after finally listening to supercalifragilisticexpialidocious at your place! It's been at least 20 years since I last heard it. Sound of Music, no need lah, one old well worn copy cukup.... biggrin.gif

Of course see what can restore some memories....maybe get hold of a copy of `Cats' icon_idea.gif hmmm Barbara Streisand, yes!!! Also Bette Midler..... I've only got them on mp3, which hardly does justice to their talents.

Wow!..I must consult you sometime or other how to plan great strategies. You must be an expert if I see you around this Sunday!. rclxms.gif

Lets say its now "hot property" and an acquired taste.
CD Digital sound has been reduced with heavy compression and can likely be treated as coffee cup coasters.
Unfortunately, enthusiasts have not much choice but to acquire "used records" most of the time, many are ressurected from the dumps.

I think the vinyl will have richer sound especially on middle low frequencies...based on my experience on Queen song, i still prefer the analog sound. Unless at the first recording stage they put it in digital then it will be different..  hmm.gif

bro, which Queen song is that?
