This may be a recording from the '80's but does it get any better - not really.

If ever there has been a better bass baritone than Samuel Ramey I don't know him!

This production has perfect tempo beautiful diction and real strength of purpose. There are no weakness's and terrific value. Handel: Messiah

New, not necessarily improved 22 Nov. 2012
By Tight-Wad - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Just a general warning about remastered recordings: they're not consistently "better" than the original for home listening.

Frequently, the purpose of the remastering is to make the recording more compatible with mobile listening environments such as your car, or through ear buds. This is done by reducing the apparent "width" of the "stereo image" to produce a wide monaural recording. ("Stereo image" is the acoustic effect of making the performers sound as if they are spread out realistically in front of the listener.) The stereo effect only works when your speakers are located in front of you, and you are situated roughly midway between them. This is not the case when listening in a car, or through any type of earphones.

As a marketing strategy, these remasterings make good business sense, since the automobile has become the most common listening environment. But in a car the only way one could experience anything approaching true stereo would be to straddle the center console - not a very practical solution that could even be injurious to some very sensitive body parts.

(Typical example: DG's remaster of Anne-Sophie Mutter's recordings of Mozart's Violin Concertos, which is almost monaural. I'll take it in my car, but original is far superior for home listening.)

Enough said. If you like listening at home, listen to the previews through your home system and compare them to your CDs.
