which is the best edition of each album Paul McCartney?
The Sri Lankan shellac 16 rpm versions
Good thread. I originally bought some CD issues from the Paul McCartney Collection series with the white inlay and the original album cover in miniature (released in 1993, I believe). They are OK but when I had the chance to compare with an original 1980's CD in the case of Venus and Mars, I preferred this earlier version. It "breathes" more easily. It seems to have a better dynamic range. I then replaced copies of WATSOS, RAM and Tug of War. In each case preferring the original. I aim to replace all. I have heard that the Paul McCartney archive series is good too but don't own any to compare.
I really like the DCC discs, especially Ram, Band On The Run, and McCartney.
They're a improvement over the original discs as of dynamics and sound.
I tend to lean toward the DCC versions overall as well, then all of the unlimited hi-res remaster files that have been released that way, then the "Fame" series that don't have an unlimited hi-res version yet... and whatever for all the rest because I rarely listen to them anyway.
It's hard to tell lately.
DCC Gold Cd.
