Let me start this thread by saying that other than remastered CDs, I have no Earth, Wind & Fire recordings in my music collection. That is, I have no LPs, SACDs, or original CDs. In any event, I have Greatest Hits, The Best of Earth, Wind & Fire Vol. 1, and The Essential Earth, Wind & Fire on CD. I figure that most, if not all, of the songs on these discs were taken from analog masters given the age of the recordings. Surprisingly, I found these discs to sound very "digital". Now, I know these are CDs, but still, I did not expect an overly digital sound from older recordings. The vocals are rather "glassy" or have a bit of "sizzle". As an example, I found the sizzle to be readily apparent on "September" and "Can't Hide Love" on all three discs. Overall, I feel these CDs show great separation, detail, and rhythm, but there is the digital glare. Does anyone else feel that the remastered Earth, Wind & Fire CDs sound too digital?
