Over the years I've bought a ton of albums in their original guise and also later on the rereleased remastered versions on account of having lost the originals, or having lent them out never to get them back again.
In all honestly I've never heard a remastered album that has any discernible difference to the original. So what does it mean when an album is remastered? Is anything different done to/with the recording or is it a marketing gimmick used to shift more units?
And speaking of mastering and remastering albums, how does Bob Ludwig find the time to master so many albums? He must be the busiest guy on the planet! I bet I can look on any number of albums I own and it'll state it was mastered by Bob Ludwig. The guy can't have slept for about 30 years!
