Third Man Records & Document teaming up
« on: January 10, 2013, 09:28:46 PM »
hello friend,
looks like those who have record players will be able to enjoy some newly remastered Lps of some of the early blues greats pretty soon.

sound samples sound pretty nice, too.

Not too sure I like the artwork by the "Grammy-award winning" artist... However, this would appear to be a fine project.

Agreed; it's great to see the old stuff re-released.  I'm not sure I get the connection between Lawrence of Arabia and the Mississippi Sheiks, though.  Maybe he was a fan? ;)

That's what, 2 or 3 labels now re-releasing prewar blues on vinyl? Not counting some of the postwar country blues, field recordings and gospel being released as well.

The Third Man Records Vault is great. These look really good. I would suppose the cover art is to appeal to a newer audience.

There are people in the universe who don't listen to records??

Is there any indication that these are taken from non-CD sources?  I have been a part of discussions at this website before on this topic.  The consensus seemed to be, as I recall, that LPs taken from CDs do not achieve the same quality as 78-->analog tape-->LP recordings.  I think I would buy the latter, but not the former. To me, the failure of any manufacturer to note the lineage means that the recordings are suspect in this regard.

Not getting much of a response regarding lineage at the website thread dedicated to a discussion of these vinyl reissues.  Some are curious, but others seem to think it isn't a necessary line of inquiry (and wonder why would I assume Document Records would be involved in anything but a 100% analog reissue desipte the fact that they are silent on the issue).  I am not a vinyl audiophile, so my views generally are via what others have said on the subject.  But someday - perhaps soon - I would like to start a vinyl collection that would include old blues and I want to be sure I get more from an audio standpoint than what I already have on CD.

What dio you all think of the importance of ensuring that such reissues do not have any digital steps in their creation?
