Re: [ARSCLIST] Losing New Master Recordings
I don't recall that Matador ever claimed to issue analog-to-analog LP's. The
Mission of Burma reissues notwithstanding, since that was a clearly a vanity
project. (Documented here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TW-ZIi6149A )
In fact, i can only think of a handful of new rock records in the last 10 years
that claimed to be AAA (none of which were Matador):
1. Low "Things We Lost in the Fire" (Kranky, 2001) *
2. Low "Trust" (Kranky, 2002)
3. Any number of Shellac LP's (the band, Shellac)
* No, the irony of that title is not lost on me.
Bummer about those Yo La Tengo titles though, those are easily my two favorites!

They would remix from the multi-tracks (which can be a long and
expensive process) and then remaster (which is not inexpensive).

The all-analogue folks wouldn't buy that. The only analog-to-analog
copies I've done have been for an outfit like this that was offering
vinyl--no digital allowed.
