I really don't buy new releases of old records but I have on occasion, or sometimes got a remaster before hunting down an original vinyl release. Usually I prefer the originals for a number of reasons including compression, noise reduction, and some non musician engineers idea of how music made before he was born ought to sound. I really can't think of a remaster that sounded better to me, but again, there's so much of the old stuff still on vinyl that i can't see much reason to buy old stuff on new media. Gave up, sold all your vinyl, put the turntable in the attic? Well whose fault is that? It's funny, there were a few times when a rare pressing I'd heard was impossible to find, and some I nagged record stores to find for me to no avail. I recall going through that with Coltrane's First Meditations for Quartet, which sold poorly and was not reissued when i was hunting for it. When all the old analog & vinyl die hards finally got too old & tired to handle vinyl, they sold it all or threw it out. Suddenly the used record stores were well stocked with OOP vinyl! That Coltrane album? I have four copies now, all marked promo/ not for sale. Next thing we know, kids today think vinyl is cool? Haven't shopped for vinyl recently, gettin old I guess but not selling mine off just yet!
