Who would like to see some of the MoFi-type remasters on Spotify?
Does anyone think this could ever happen? I mean, a lot of them are already out of print, and perhaps this would be a good way for them to be "revived". The only issue is overcoming that whole "lossy" stigma, but I think we all know 320kbps ogg vorbis is transparent, right? It'd be a nice way to get to hear good quality music without blowing upwards of $40 a disc or, even worse, pirating.

Watch out for TOS #8 complaints for claiming things without abx results. Talking from own experience. Regards.

Let's not overreact here. OP's statement wasn't exactly controversial.

MoFi didn't own the original recordings they remastered. To put their remasters on Spotify you would need the permission of the original record company, and who ever now owns the rights to the MoFi remastering.

There are some audiophile remasters (from other companies) on HDtracks.

One problem with Spotify is that it's hard to find the specific remaster you want of a given track/album - sometimes you just have to play them all, and sometimes the visual "CD case" and the actual audio content don't match (e.g. same track but from different album / release). I guess if you were touting a really special remaster you could just put it into the album's title.

Cheers,
David.

It is maybe a bit unfortunate that TOS #8 is not phrased clearly about the null hypothesis and the burden of proof and what separates a positive claim to difference from one that doesn't.

I don't think the real problem actually has anything to do with the wording of TOS #8.  Regardless...

Before considering further off-topic discussion of the phrasing of TOS #8, I think reviewing TOS #5 is in order.

If that isn't a big enough hint, let me be more clear: further discussion about punkrockdude's troll post will be binned and warnings will be issued.
