    Considering how many smaller bands have had their catalogs remastered with bonus tracks, these are a few in need of being reissued:

    Beatles - Why the greatest band of all time has not had theirs done is beyond me.

    U2
    Prince
    Bruce Springsteen

    I've been told it is because the 1987 versions still continue to sell at a brisk pace, despite their $19 list price. Until sales start to fall, there is no incentive for the record companies to go to the expense of creating a new, improved version.

    I'd also like to see remasters of all U2 CDs through "Actung Baby." Remasters of Depeche Mode's "Music For The Masses" and "Violator" would be great too. Call me crazy but I'd rebuy dozens of 80's albums if they were remastered.

    a remastered version of Springsteen & The E Street Band's BTR will be released next month for its 30th anniversary

    thankfully it does not tack on 'bonus' tracks

    no need to mess with perfection

    I like reissues not remasters. What format/s should stuff be remastered/reissued to? I think it's just become a royal scam to keep redoing CD's over and over. I'd suggest that it's mostly a waste unless they move on to the new, better formats.

    Uh, how come nobody's mentioned the most obvious choice for remastering?

    Rachael,

    I agree with you in most cases, but some cds were so bad sounding when they were released, they need to be remastered. I can think of several in my collection that have been replaced and I am glad they were remastered because they sound much better.

    Amen Kyle! I have way too many bad sounding CD's myself. With Super Audio, DVD-A, and HDAD available, it just makes no sense to release ordinary CD's. They can ride with Super Audio. It's just that the room for improvement is so much smaller on the CD format compared to the other possibilities. Retrograde is a great album by the Friends Of Dean Martinez but it's a bad thing for the industry, and more mportantly, us! I don't want discs that are improved a few %! That's what I see possible with CD. The industry as shown me somethin' better and I don't like this retrograde back to vanilla CD.

    Big 4 vanilla CD mastering standards get worse by the day. They can ruin any album's audio given a chance. I can't get very excited by the prospect of buying improved (read: questionable) CD's. DSD CD's from Sony and Telarc particularly P-pp me off! That justs says to me we're too cheap to give you a hybrid! Every Dual-y Disc P's me off that it could'a been a cheaper to produce DVD-A + CD!

    I like CD compatible formats for their higher attributes. If labels have great tapes worth the time of day to remix, remaster, and issue. Then give it them deluxe treatment. Vanill'er CD doesn't excite me anymore....

    "The Joshua Tree" and The Tragically Hip's "Fully Completely" on SA-CD in Stereo (or an expanded 5.1 without the tricks).

    Even though "Fully Completely" sounds sonically well recorded and mastered as-is, more resolution would be nice.

    "The Joshua Tree" doesn't sound as airy as I would like. It sounds like I'm missing some of the subtleties in the music.

    The Island-released CD sounds to me - and I hate to use such an audiophile term - very gauzy. It definitely sounds like quite a bit of detail and crispness has been lost, like a heavy cloth has been placed over the speakers. Maybe this was by design, but the MoFi release doesn't seem to experience it to such a high degree...
