If you’re like me and mostly listen to music recorded before Bonzo first went to Bitzburg you’ll probably notice that record labels believe you’ll keep re-buying the same albums as long as they keep “remastering” them. Remastering can, in some cases, lead to better sounding records, but it’s sadly become a cynical cash-in rather than a way of putting out better music. Columbia has released a remastered Dylan’s Love and Theft , which came out less than 10 years ago. I’m pretty sure that mastering technology hasn’t changed that much in the past decade.

The message I’m getting is that the record labels feel that no one knew how to properly master an album prior to about 2005. Or maybe this is all a conspiracy to explain the delay behind Chinese Democracy. I can only hope it’s the latter.
