Why have the Manifesto CDs been re-mastered?

0

Digital sound technology has improved by leaps and bounds since the 80’s when the band’s CDs were first mastered. It’s like the difference between the first video game and Microsoft’s XBox. No comparison. Pong and the latest 3D games of today — the advances in computer speed make the sound of the new CDs closer to the real sound. For instance, the old 80’s Give Me Convenience or Give Me Death actually has a technical error in it (a +5 dB midrange peak) that made it sound like hearing the CD through a telephone. The re-mastering corrected this problem, among others, and the listener can now hear the sound of the original tapes like the band first heard them in the studio.
