But , sadly, it isn't the norm.

Having mathed(?!??) that, it is a shame that so many modern recordings suck so bad.
These days there shouldn't be an excuse for that anymore.

Contrast that with the mess that is Whitesnake's latest 30th Anniversary release of '1987'. A truly awful late-80's digital recording, with an equally awful re-release.
Sometimes 'progress' isn't progress!

Yep ~ Nat King Cole was very well recorded as was Johnny Mathis.

In the 80's anything mastered by Doug Sax was also darn good!

I'm pleased to see with Sony reopening pressing plants that they are getting the old, long retired guys back to train the newbies before all the old tricks of the trade are lost forever.
