I heard The Alan Parsons Project's "Games People Play" on the radio a few days ago, which reminded me that I still had no Parsons CDs in my collection. So today, I went to a hole-in-the-wall store and picked up The Best Of The Alan Parsons Project, which dates back to 1983. The CD sounds very good and has 12 hits, including "Eye In The Sky" and "Games People Play". In scanning amazon.com, I saw a two-disc set from 1997 entitled The Definitive Collection. Seeing as this two-disc set is much newer than the disc I picked up today, how do the two releases compare sonically? Has The Definitive Collection been remastered such that it is much better than the original compilation? The store I was in had a follow up compilation to the disc I bought. I guess it was volume 2. Anyway, if The Definitive Collection is significantly better sonically than the disc I bought, I will get it instead of that old volume 2 disc to have a reasonably representative collection of Parsons' best works. Now, on to Steely Dan. I have the remastered MCA compilation A Decade of Steely Dan, and I love the selection of songs and the sound quality. Regarding the sound quality, I also have the original version of A Decade of Steely Dan, and the remastered version is better. That said, I have yet to hear a Steely Dan CD that didn't sound good. At Best Buy yesterday, I came across a two-disc set from 2000 entitled Showbiz Kids: The Steely Dan Story, 1972-1980. Is this another studio compilation? If so, how does it compare sonically to the remastered version of A Decade of Steely Dan? Obviously, as a two-disc set, Showbiz has more songs than Decade. I was just wondering if Showbiz gets you better remastering in addition to more songs. Thanks in advance.
