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.
