HWY: Good idea. I had once thought of trying to contact Elton John to see if he would consider having some of his CD work re-mastered. I have heard that he is a perfectionist, but suspect that he lost control of many of the CD issues at the same time that he lost control of other areas of his life. The CD's make me want to get another turntable and phono preamp as I do not enjoy them nearly as much as the vinyl versions. The same goes with a lot of music that I have purchased on CD that I compare to the vinyl version in my mind. Some of the conversions though do sound good to me, so I know that it is possible if the master tapes still exist. Re-masters would also be a good way of the artist to cash in on old work, that is if the market for these is large enough. I for one am looking forward to the new release of "All Things Must Past" and I have never listened to the other CD version, I just assume that it will be good. To advertise new releases as being "true hi-fidelity" if they are in fact, might also be a good selling point for the artist, plus it may breed new life into the recording process as well as the artist's performance in the studio. I am new to CD's and have thought a lot about this for the past year and have wondered if the consumer/audience can make a difference. I guess that I will never know unless I express my thoughts and feeling to the people that perform and engineer the music itself.
