I'm on a roll. Just got a computer. I've been itching to get my two cents worth in for a while so duck, here I come. I've been backfilling my favorites from the 60's and seventies with re-masters. Rory Gallagher; "Live in Europe", "Live at the BBC" much improved sound, still great music. I'm a music guy by the way, that always comes first. I'll never recommend something that I don't believe is good music. My taste by the way is impeccable. Santana "Abraxas" is good, "Who's Next" deluxe great, War "anthology" has good sound but the songs don't all work for me plus they left out "beetles in the bog." Same with Sly and the Family Stone. The good songs are great but... Jethro Tull re-masters are great, I'm a Tull fan. So far I've picked up "Benefit" (my favorite), and "Passion Play." Box sets; "The Jimi Hendrix Experience", 4-cd's, great music and I think good sound. Hendrix guitar music is wild and sometimes over the top. The sound is dominated by Jimi's guitar and can be harsh at times. Not something you want to listen to when you want to mellow out. Get "Smash Hits" if you want a single cd of his music. Buffalo Springfield 4 cd box, great music and good sound. If your not a big fan get the re-mastered versions of the studio albums if/when they're out. Stevie Ray Vaughan 3 cd-1 dvd box set. Hey, box sets are for fans, and for fans this is great music and good sound. Same with the new Talking Heads box. Dated, but I like anyway. All the songs you need are there. (I guess some of these came out before 2003, but that's when I bought them). Guess Who "Anthology." I do like compilations of artists that didn't really have IMHO any great individual albums but scattered good tunes. I really like this one, filled with the familiar top 40 hits and some obscure gems. The sound is better than anything previous but you can tell they are older recordings. Again, music first, definitely listenable. Grateful Dead, "Workingman's Dead." Good tunes and like most if not all material from this era, much improved sound, but will never compete with well re-corded modern recordings sonically. And that doesn't matter to me.
