Now that's an interesting thought! It seems that using the original master tapes; including fake stereo, stereo and mono mixes as ORIGINALLY released is frowned upon, yet, when they include better-sounding mixes instead of the original singles masters (some in decidedly inferior quality) many are upset, even outraged. Makes you wonder if a re-release can ever please the masses. The Who camp must feel powerless at times... well if anyone there reads or checks out music forums and reviews. Is the aim for best possible audio? Or, using the original masters? How about remixes? Can a Who fan ever be satisfied? So many questions... but few answers. An honest question for ALL Who fans. On the new Singles set (which I find VERY nice indeed) would you prefer an authentic singles mix being used even if the sound quality is decidedly inferior to a later remix or remaster, or from a newly-found tape? And on re-released albums, do you prefer the original album masters, or remixes that improves fidelity? Should a supposed 2026 A Quick One re-release be mono-only? A hodge-podge of mono, fake stereo and stereo as originally released? A stereo-only album from newly-discovered (we wish) session tapes? That's what this all comes down to. One's preference for original mixes even if they sound worse over contemporary or modern-day remixes. Ron PS I have a mint original 5:15 single and it sounds like crud. The album master, soundtrack remix and other remasters sound significantly better. Why would anyone want a clearly inferior-sounding mix? For historical accuracy? If that's the case, I suggest hunting down the 45 for your collection. It's not like it has an alternate vocal or other distinctive anomaly that would warrant such a release.
