Why put MP3's on a commercial CD?
on 27 March 2010
First of all we have to be thankful,that there are labels, which bring back such long-time rare 80ies gems, adding wonderful bonus tracks and re-package them so neatly. So why only a one-star review?
It's the fact they partly used MP3's as a source. "Searchin' [12" Version]", Whatever I Do (Wherever I Go) [12" Mix] and No Fool (For Love) [12" Version] are definitely sourced from lossy origins. You can see that clearly, if you look at the tracks in spectral view in an audio editor application.
I think I better get my old vinyls, record and clean them by myself. Sure, they won't be perfect, but I know, they won't be lossy crap.
