    I have been building up my digital collection,
    And wanted advice on the sound quality of the Fuel label remaster of Satchmo Plays King Oliver.
    I love the vinyl, but would enjoy a nice digital
    Option, and like many hear, I have given up
    On the digital SACD release.
    Thank you all in advance.
  2. I'd also like to know the answer to this question! I guess we're both in for a very long wait..............:waiting:

    Sorry guys, I only have the Blue Moon remaster version and the sound on that is fabulous.
  4. That's interesting as the Blue Moon is also a European "grey" reissue, often mis-labelled in this forum as a "bootleg". The Solar / Essential Jazz Classics imprints are exactly the same thing, legitimate reissues but not strictly "official". As EJC have reissued the "Complete" after the Fuel 2000 / Varese download / CD-R on-demand versions, I think I'll go for that instead as there is a reasonable chance that it's from the same source.
  5. I've found the answer by re-reading the "where to start with Louis Armstrong" thread again. Apparently the Fuel 2000 release was created with poor quality needle drops and the exuberant use of No-Noise processing. It's time to look for the old LP's, I think! What a pity.

    Remastered by Bernie Grundman, from the original analog tapes, 200-gram vinyl plated and pressed by Quality Record Pressings.

    Well, it's a winner for sure. That's VERY hard to beat IMHO.

    And how it sounds in comparison to the Classic Records 33rpm pressing?
