Not all digitally sourced vinyl sounds bad. Here are a few that come to mind that are pretty spectacular sounding: Rickie Lee Jones- Girl at Her Volcano EP; King Crimson- Live in Toronto- pretty spectacular- listen to Starless, it is stunning; That Allison Krauss/Union Station Live- MoFi? that now fetches big money was a digitally sourced record; Billy Joel's Songs in the Attic- @Combination turned me on to this- great sounding record. Perhaps part of the reason is that these records started life as digital recordings rather than being analog recordings that were converted for LP, I don't know. Most of the reissues on digital don't hold up to the original analog recording, but some, like the Wilson remixes of Benefit and Aqualung outshine the originals (which were lackluster or problematic as original issues) and benefit from the remix. (Same is true of the remix of In the Court- it's a tradeoff-- I have early Island UK pressings, pink label and pink rim. Aside from noise on the quiet passages and the sonic mess that is Schizoid Man, Greg Lake's vocals are very recessed in the original mix of Epitaph. The remix improves that considerably.
