Everything and Nothing / Re: Early Japan CD pressings vs. everything else including recent remasters« on: January 14, 2016, 03:51:49 PM »
On my immediate wantlist of the Japan CD pressings is David Bowie's "Heroes," because I listened to the 1999 remaster last night in my car and it's just horrible. The volume is cranked to 11 and crazy on the compression. Just really unlistenable. I originally had it on cassette in the mid-80's and then I believe I had the early CD back then too. I'll have to go after the Europe or USA discs from the 80's on RCA that were made in Japan. These are supposedly the best versions. But my "Scary Monsters" 1999 remaster sounds very good. The volume is cranked but not to the level where it ruins the sound, which is overall very good.
