V. Morrison Moondance reissue vs 2nd press what is the fascination with digital on vinyl?

I recently purchased Van Morrisons Moondance RTI pressing and I have a 2nd press palm tree warner brothers release. The reissue sounds overdone and is not analog.  It is very forward sounding.  The reissue is also somewhat bass heavy getting it wrong especially on the first track.  I find this commonplace with reissues and many audiophile pressings,  Why cant they just make a true analog recording?  Is it that difficult?  what is the fascination with digital on vinyl?  sounds like an oxymoron.

I see no point buying re-issued vinyl that isn't mastered from the original master tapes.   Mobile Fidelity for one does this extremely well from my perspective.
