    RE:Robert Johnson, "The Complete Recordings". Sony remastered the set in 1996 with cleaner original 78's and metal parts that had been found since the original release in 1990. From what I can hear they used a lot less noise reduction on the second edition(non-boxed version). I'd avoid the regular remaster and gold disc versions of "King Of The Delta Blues Singers" since the version of "Terraplane Blues" on that release has nasty groove damage on the copy they transferred it from. One other techinical note, Johnson's recordings were definitely made electrically with a microphone and electrically powered cutting lathe. The majority of 78 records made after 1927 were made this way.


    Abbey Road would be a great DCC release!!

    Any Beatles album. Probably either RUBBER SOUL or REVOLVER would top the list.

    Man is this a hard one. I just can’t choose one. So I have to go with Otis Blue/Redding Sings Soul, the white album as a Mono/Stereo two-fer, the Kinks are the village green preservation society and Arthur, and Frank Sinatra, the Complete Capital years. :D

    The one album that I would love re-mastered is Freak Out by the Mothers of invention.

    Since everyone else picked some of the many I would like, I will go with a more obscure one;

    how about Crowded House "Together Alone" :D

    Hey Dan, I thought I was the only Fischer fan here. My first post on the old board was a request for this album...no one responded (which didn't take me by suprise!). I was disappointed (although, again, not surprised) that this album was not included on Rhino's recent compilation.

    The original CD release was squished and crappy sounding. The re release was even worse: a remix! I was horrified. So there has never been a decent release of this on CD. I would love a good remaster of this.

    Hi all,

    Plausible choice would be "Fear Of Music" by Talking Heads.

    Implausible choice would be "Strange Meeting" by Power Tools (Bill Frisell, Melvin Gibbs, Ronald Shannon Jackson)

    Absolutely No Chance but My Pick is The Tubes - The Completion Backwards Principle. Currently Out of Print but an amazing album with a great Steve Lukather solo on Talk to Ya Later.

    Ahh...that *would* be nice.

    I wouldn't mind the uncut version of Almost Cut My Hair as another bonus track!

    The Beatles "White Album". My absolute favorite album of all time. An album with so many moods. Mostly dark.

    One of my very favorite albums from back in my college days, which has never been properly remastered for CD, is HUMBLE PIE'S "Performance - Rockin' the Fillmore"

    This is certainly one of the most visceral live rock albums ever produced; it begs for talents such as Steve's to bring it back to life. It may not need no doctor, but... :D

    Cheers,
    Robert Cat Conrad

    Neil Young: On the Beach

    For a couple of reasons:
    1. It's not even out on CD.
    2. All of Neil's catalogue available on CD is unlistenable.
    3. He's my favorite artist.
    4. It's my favorite album of his.

    Layla,not necessarily any cleaner but I'd like to see what Steve could do with it. And also River Deep Mountain High since I didn't get it on aluminum MO FI. Does anybody know if this was a good one?

    I have a Spanish import on Alvorado of River Deep-Mountain High and Sonny Charles & The Checkmates's "Love Is All We Have To Give" albums on 1 CD in stereo with very well remastered and clean sound.
