I get a lot of PM's. Hundreds. People ask me stuff and I'm happy to answer if I know the answer. Usually I have them start threads so we can all share information but sometimes they are too shy to or whatever, so I'll answer some questions right here and right now. Please note, my opinion is just that, an opinion. Best sounding Boston 1 CD? That's easy, this one. EK 34188, DIDP 20006. I think this is the original issue. This is the version that sounds most like the master tape, with no treble boost and all dynamics intact. When I feel like hearing this album, this is what I play. Best sounding Traveling Wilburys CD? Also easy, the original issue mastered by Steve Hall at Future Disc Systems. 25796-2. Warner Bros. press, with AAD on back. Beautiful sounding (compared to what came after) with nice vocal tones and plenty of headroom for dynamic peaks. I've been asked who my favorite living mastering engineer is. Well, I have two. The above-mentioned STEVE HALL and my buddy STEPHEN MARSH. Both dudes are analog guys living in a digital world. They know what good sound is and how not to kill it when mastering. KEVIN GRAY as well! Hope this helps, shy guys!
