Having been completely dissapointed with recent so called re-mixed/re-mastered CD's, especially the Capitol Beatles Box sets that came out in the last 2 years, I have been seriously thinking about selling off my entire CD collection and start making my own CD's from my Records. I've found out recently that just recording my LP's/Records to my computer with just de-clicking/popping and absolutely NO EQing I can make a CD that's better than what is already out there. I've recorded LP's to CD from my Complete Beatles Blue Box Set and I was completely blown away by how much better it sounds than the CD's that are out there. The 2 LP's I've recorded so far are Revolver and Yellow Submarine. Revolver sounds incredible and I can now here the rich Bass and Drums that are almost non existent on the original '87 Beatles CD releases. Yellow Submarine sounds great too. George Martin's Orchestration from side 2 sounds AMAZING!!! It also is missing from the new Yellow Submarine Songtrack that was released a while back. I plan on doing a lot more than just my Beatles LP's...but just from what I've heard so far, I can say that I am re-juvinated with collecting vinyl. I guess George Martin was right when he said that CD's will never re-create the sound that you get from LP's.
Any others out there that collect and enjoy Records/LP's???
