Re: [ARSCLIST] Losing New Master Recordings

Yah -- that's a development none of us could have foreseen; a situation
whereby one would be forced to remaster an LP from a CD.

The article doesn't say, but I would guess that only the 2 track  
masters were lost in the bankruptcy of the pressing plant. Their use  
of the word master makes it sound like a catastrophe, which it  
probably isn't. So they have to remaster/remix the original multitrack  
masters? Is that how this works?

I can loan them my Yo La Tengo CDs if they really need something to  
make LPs from...
