It would be really good to have a thread where all those recording experts among you would throw a title or two just to recommend a certain album's release. Like, for example; "if you want to listen to that band don't buy CD's released from that company or from that company.\n\nOr even, since Mr. Toole explained why certain older albums will still sound better on vinyl, you could even recommend a few of those.\n\nI'll start: I came across the first Dire Straits album on an SACD published for Japan. I don't exactly know what happened in the remastering process, but it didn't sound good. Something strange about "upper low frequencies", in the song Six Blade Knife the rhythm section covers everything else. It is over-stressed. The drum and the midds completely eat the entire song. It happens on other songs as well, but here it is most obvious.\n\nThen a friend of mine recommended Bob Ludwig's remasters and those were great. I wholeheartedly recommend all Dire Straits studio albums remastered by Bob Ludwig.\n\nSo let's make it like what are you listening, watching and drinking threads, but this one with "what release do you prefer?" Today you can find hundreds of releases for more famous albums, so let's try avoid buying those that aren't really good.
