I have just scored an unparalleled success in that I have, at last, after waiting years, bought an original copy of the legendary Bitches Brew by Miles Davis. It's not actually in my hands yet, but I thought I'd pose my question anyway because - I already have Bitches Brew - on CD. I won't go into the digital/analogue argument here - I've made a brief post on the thread about the recent resurgence of records so please read and comment there about that. In the last few years I have repeatedly NOT bought a new 'vinyl reissue', because to my mind it amounts to a kind of fakery. There was a good reason to reissue albums when CDs were invented. The new 'vinyls' being produced now - with some very rare exceptions - are simply vinyl pressings of the same digital remaster, your CD cut to a record in other words. My advice is to avoid. I accidentally bought Tutu, 'deluxe edition' - mainly because there was a live album included in the package. I threw the copy of Tutu away as I have the original, but I played it first for a few minutes. It's kind of not there, the balance is out, the EQ is wrong, there's no weight in the bass - it doesn't hit you, but most of all it's very quiet, I've no idea what happened there. Binned. There is a company cutting records from the original master tapes - Gain2. There are probably others but I came across a used Gain2 copy of Bitches Brew at £200. These may be worth having, I've never heard one, but the catalogue is very limited and niche. I would always want the original for a host of reasons. So who else is throwing out their CDs and fake digital vinyl?
