Remastering for digital WAYYY to heavy-handed
It's a shame that whoever was given the task of "remastering" this great, kitschy, iconic soundtrack, either had no idea what they were doing OR was SO AFRAID that consumers would balk at hearing a little tape hiss, that they ruined it for a new generation of listeners.
I've owned the original vinyl of this for many years and even my kinda beat copy sounds way better then this abominable re-issue. I point out that this is not a vinyl snob argument over LP versus CD sound quality. the problem with this reissue is that whoever remastered it used copious amounts of digital noise reduction with the settings way too aggressive. (and 2002 technology -which has been surpassed greatly since then). Not only has the slight bit of tape hiss been removed, but all the ambiance of the original recording and EVEN the cymbals and other high frequency instruments are GONE! the result sounds like a 64kbps mp3 that's been copied a few times.
so, whoever holds the copyrights, PLEASE re-approach this great collection with careful ears and hands!
AND whoever bought this and hears what I'm talking about, COMPLAIN to the issuer.
I'd hate for this to be the lasting version of such a great soundtrack.
