Bands catalogues that could do with a remaster


#1

Kyuss

Someone needs to fiddle with the mixes I feel

Production on Welcome to Sky Valley and Blues for the Red Sun are far too, for want of a better word, quiet for the thunderous behemoths that lay within


#2

Hüsker Dü! Numero Group are up to something though so we could see a proper reissue project from them soon.


#3

Yes to Husker Du! Very tinny.


#4

I’m a bit of a debutante when it comes to Metallica - have they added bass to their old albums yet?


#5

Would like all George Harrison’s stuff to have the sheen taken off it, Let It Be Naked style

Most Kinks records could be mixed a lot better too


#6

man, would love a better mix of new day rising


#7

Quite possible. They’ve already put a remaster of ‘Everything Falls Apart’ online. Link in the description on this Instagram post on their profile.


#8

I think I would enjoy Californication by the big chillis and the flea if it were remastered


#9

Catherine Wheel’s first two (dgaf about vinyl represses), Band of Susans, and Head of David could use a remastering.

would love a boxset of Slowdive’s unreleased demos.

Spiritualized - Pure Phase: remastered and/or remixed into full stereo or mono.


#10

Not sure I’d want a Husker Du remaster tbh, it just wouldn’t be the same without those typewriter-sounding drums.


#11

Speaking of let it be naked, I’d love to hear everything must go without the strings


#12

Hmm would be nice to hear but think it would lose a fair bit of impact with it


#13

probably a bit of heresy around here, but as much as I like it Girl Band’s Holding Hands with Jamie sounds much muddier than their previous singles. I assumed it was an premastered rip when I first heard it.

#heresy


#15

stone roses?


#16

I’ve noticed that with the digital versions of it. Sounds way, way better on LP.


#17

As much as I’d be interested in hearing a remaster of Pure Phase, it’s also one of the album productions/mixes I love the most - so wonderfully woozy and whooshy and swishy, just like the music.


#18

eh, the mono portion of it muddies the production for me.


#19

A lot of Julian Cope’s best stuff is a little bit the worse for clearly being recorded/mixed under a heavy narcotic cloud and thus missing some frequencies

not sure I’d want Safesurfer to sound like Dark Side of the Moon though - I’d settle for it sounding like Meddle

First thing that came to mind was Husker Du. Candy Apple Grey is so, so quiet unless you crank it.
