  1. Hans, I’m looking at the L listings right now. I see The Band self-titled has a remastered one from 2000. Do you know if there are any differences I need to know? Which one would be better? I’m guessing original but not sure.

    • The 2000 remastering has a number of extra bonus tracks- I’d go with that one. They came out with remastering’s of all the albums with bonus stuff on each.

    • I nearly always prefer the original master Jade. Most of those remasters especially in the late 90s and 00s were brighter and less dynamic with no real upside. You might get a few bonus tracks but I’m more interested in what the band worked on released way back when. Best listen for yourself and decide if you can, you’ll probably prefer one or the other

    • I prefer the original vinyl–but libraries don’t have vinyl and if you don’t have the vinyl it becomes costly to start buying something like The Band now…

    • I usually pick out a song or two from your lists to listen to. Give me a couple albums you’d think I like- it never really occurs to me to listen much to new artists anymore.

    • Well, you’re missing out on a lot of great music. Some recent good albums are “The Darker the Weather//The Better the Man” by MISSIO, “What Went Down” by British band Foals from 2015, and a recent one I reviewed “Dance For the Hunted” by British rock band Saboteurs. Their lead singer has a voice that’s similar to Bono of U2.
