    I wish for a good mono remaster of the Modern Sounds albums. I have three copies of each on vinyl (I like these albums) but none play great all the way through a side. I need to mix and match

    The mono mixes are fine but the stereo versions are better sonically and more dynamic. The instrument/vocal balances are almost the same.

    Great time to bump this Mr. Hoffman.
    I just happened to grab a $5 copy on discogs Sunday night.
    Ironically, I was reading your notes from the first post of this thread on the discogs master page before deciding to buy.
    Very helpful information. Thanks!

    To their credit, Bell Sound always recut MODERN SOUNDS and MODERN SOUNDS TWO from the actual masters, not copies. So, any cutting would sound good.

    Funny, that doesn't really sound like mastering. It does sound a lot like taking credit for someone else's work. And we know that never happens in the entertainment industry :whistle:

    Not in that case. Bill was just using what I gave him, fixing levels a bit. We had an agreement, his credit, not mine. On the other Rhino RAY I worked on, I got the credit. We each got one, planned in advance. I was fine with that..
