This could be a lengthy rant, but I have on one else to complain to so here I go.
Because I actually am older than dirt, I have lived through the entire Rock era. The advent of the CD fifteen years before they had begun to perfect the medium (and now Neil Young is about to change all that) caused the music industry to so cheapen the quality of vinyl records that they became almost unlistenable.
Forced to make the switch, I sold my 2000 LPs to finance the move into CDs. Since then I have been trying to repurchase my collection on CD (in addition to buying new releases and the latest Remasters available). I now have 5000 CDs and still haven't been able to complete my earlier collection.
Here then is a list of only a few albums I miss:
Boz Scaggs first album on Atlantic. Never out of print; never given the proper Remaster it deserves.
The Joy (Of Cooking) on Fantasy
Terri Garthwaite's two albums on Fantasy
Fleetwood Mac's Then Play On. Never out of print; never given the proper Remaster it deserves. Warner Bros.
Van Morrison's first three albums on Warner Bros. Never, never although the Japanese Remaster of Astral Weeks is amazing.
Jerry Lynn Williams only album on Warner Bros.
John Hurley of the Hurley/Wilkens songwriting team. One on RCA, two on Bell.
The entire Hoodoo Rhythm Devils catalogue. Capitol, Blue Thumb and Fantasy.
Don Nix on Elektra.
There are many many others, but I'll stop here for now. If you feel as strongly about this as I do, tell everyone what you're looking for.
