As the article explains, recording technology was decades ahead of playback technology, e.g. the recent re-mix of Sgt Pepper which thrilled with previously unheard detail, depth and clarity. The same is true for the 2018 re-mix of The Band's Big Pink. These achievements are only possible thanks to the latest digital technology. So it's crucial to be able to access the original masters.

Then there is an unknown quantity of unreleased material that was destroyed. We'll never know what it was, but I'm comfortable guessing that the mainstream US hit machine did not then concern itself much more with trad-ish material than it does now.
