Fred - fair enough, I'm mostly in agreement...

Expert 'pro' vinyl rips of 'mint' LPs can be a sheer pleasure to listen to.

But sadly all vinyl pressing were not all equal high quality.
Even mint copies of many first generation pressing can still sound shite,
due to poor mastering, clumsy pressing, and cheap shoddy recycled vinyl.

Obtaining the best quality audio source for digital transfer should always be encouraged & prioritised.

Let's encourage the preservation and release of vital original master tapes where ever possible,
not risk discarding them to decay and oblivion
because of seemingly insurmountable petty legal ownership disputes.
