Stop wondering, because you are correct. The orginal albums do have a layout that "works", as well its the way we remember it. Much more important is THE FACT (refer to my post on the "are remasters worth buying?" thread, below) ...THE FACT that remasters are just that, re-recorded, the intergration is gone, gone with the wind. Don't sound the same to me, sound kinda funny. I've heard Chicago Hits remastered, I'm not moved at all by this new fandago "re-master". Like you ,bored. If you like Stevie Wonder, by all means get his Innervisions disc, if its still in print. Great music. Steely Dan, absolutely must sound exactly like I remember the vinyl albums, if its not, I don't want to hear it. I hear some remasters on the radio, and I shut it off, sounds goofy. Its all about the money, these "re-masters". All right here comes the pro-re-master group, have your say.
