I picked up 2 remastered Death Row classic rap CDs today, that just came out this past week: Dr. Dre's The Chronic and Snoop Doggy Dogg's Doggystyle.
Doggystyle actually has less tracks than the original (which I was going to unload on eBay or something.) Why would you remaster a CD and drop a good number of tracks? It does have the (clean) video for What's My Name? but there are a number of tracks missing. The original CD is almost 70 minutes; the new remaster is close to 53 minutes. Does anyone know why they did this?
I think The Chronic remains the same as before except the (clean) video for ___ Wit Dre Day is on there. I don't think any tracks are missing.
Did Suge Knight simply release these to make money for his upcoming release from jail? I'm kinda pissed.
[Please no rap bashing. If you're not interested, move along.]

Well I'm sorry I don't have the CDs in question so I can't answer. I would however like to know how the remaster sound. I've yet to pick up Doggystyle or Chronic and I'd like to know if the remastered discs are the way to go. Also I think Tupac's "All Eyez On Me" was also remastered but I don't know when that's coming out.
If they did delete tracks I don't understand it in the slightest.

I'm reluctant to pick up "Doggystyle" or "All Eyez on Me" because I bought "The Chronic" and it offers nothing more than the original in the sound department.
