    I have boxes and boxes of "back up" and "seconds" CDs and I need to do some consolidating. I have a few questionable CDs: Carpenters "Yesterday Once More" (1998) and "Gold" (2004) - which one should I keep? Even though one is remastered by Richard Carpenter and the other by Bernie Grundman, they sound almost identical. I didn't know if there were any mixes specific to either CD? I know that this is probably a stupid question around here, but do I really need to hang on to my Stones mid' 80's German London CDs?

    This is Rudy's specialty, but I know he doesn't like the Richard Carpenter remixes which these are I'm afraid Paul.

    I don't like the Richard Carpenter masters either. The 1998 CD has Richard's dirty work too, so I say, don't keep either if you have the remasters of most of the original albums or the old 80s CDS of the original titles.

    Paul, am I correct in assuming that you have the Stones SACDs? I have many of them, but I am not letting go of my London discs. I don't have all the London discs either, but I have a few, and I love them. Yes, the SACDs are great to these ears, but the CDs sound great in their own right, plus they have some unique versions of a number of songs. I'd keep 'em.

    The 1998 YESTERDAY ONCE MORE and the GOLD album pretty much have the same remixes. It would be down to your personal choice of song selection. GOLD is more generous in its song selection.

    Here's what's on GOLD that's NOT on YESTERDAY ONCE MORE (1998 version):

    Maybe It's You
    Let Me Be The One
    Reason To Believe
    Jambalaya (On The Bayou)
    Leave Yesterday Behind
    Your Baby Doesn't Love You Anymore
    The Rainbow Connection
    California Dreamin'
    Merry Christmas Darling
    I Believe You
    Tryin' To Get The Feeling Again
    Mr. Guder
    A Song For You
    Karen's Theme

    And here's what gets left off of GOLD that IS on YESTERDAY ONCE MORE (1998) :

    Because We Are In Love
    Want You Back In My Life Again
    Those Good Old Dreams
