Here's something else ... listening to the Capitol mixes after being involved in this thread. Where a lot of people find them brash and trebly and compressed sounding, to my ears they sound crisp and jangly. Of course I didn't have any clue about crisp and jangly back in the 1960s when I was listening to those records in elementary school. The thing is, I'm basically a jangle pop fiend as far as my preference in rock music, Peter Buck is my favorite guitar player ever. So while there may be some "memories" involved when it comes to the Capitol mixes, my not ruling a few of them out as abominations also could involve my personal preferences as far as other artists and that particular genre. All of our opinions on everything are colored by our own personal prisms.
