I picked up this CD one day and originally thought it was a tribute album. Turns out it was just a “best of”. I already had one that was more comprehensive – Chronicles. So I took the time to compare them. Like most reissues, time adds volume. The remastering was just under what I consider brickwalling. I don’t see any flat sections at the edges of the waveforms, but the dynamics of the tracks are definitely reduced.
I would like to compare Chronicles to the originals, but there are a couple albums that I just don’t care to have. If they come along cheaply, maybe it’ll happen.
