It was funny David did mentioned older remasters sounded "too small".

Click on the "i"-button at the album audio resolution.

Ofcourse this has not much to do with the CD-remastering itself, old or new, but I just thought that it was a nice picture of how compressed
the average music listener's sound actually is compared with full 24bit 192kHz studio sound quality (MasterTape). Remarkable. 8)

Disgusting really. How do you mess something up like this? :angry:

On a related note and something subjective in itself - what's the 'best' versions of these albums and where do I get them?

The only thing I have purchased from these latest releases is just one track, Eq5 from the Lyon concert because that version has previously not been released.

Thank you. To stop bullies from taking my photos of which I took of the remastered albums and the video I made. Mainly one bully. Normally, I would never do this and it might sound petty to you but I do not want to share so certain person/s can also abuse what I have shared. This video was made for devoted kind fans so that they can see for themselves the booklets and get an idea of what the music is like. I credit Jean Michel Jarre in my description for all.

Yes it has Jon, back in 1993 Jean Michel released the first round of remastered CDs. The where released in France, each disk had a gorgeous image of the Dreyfus logo on, the covers had a gold border surrounding the album artwork.

Anyway, the release of "En Concert Houston Lyon" had the Lyon Equinoxe 5 version on it.

Ive long lost my copy of that CD was chuffed to bits that Lyon's Equinoxe 5 has resurfaced again.

If I remember correctly, the 1991 "gold border" remasters weren't really liked around the Jarre communities I frequented (this one, Jarre.net and JarreUK). A pattern in his remasters, perhaps? ;P

I haven't heard much of them, but seeing they're released just before the whole loudness-war crazyness, I'm guessing they should be quite good. The problem is the cheap-looking and quite ugly artwork.

Okay, I did a quick check and apparently the only one who didn't like the gold border versions was [url=http://www.zoolook.nl/forum/viewtopic.php?p=22772#22772]GeeJee[/url] himself. Could have sworn there was someone else... (here's another thread [url=http://www.zoolook.nl/forum/viewtopic.php?p=25250&highlight=#25250]on the subject[/url]).

[size=7]Hi Robert. The issue had been detected and Aero is trying to find another tape to do the remaster. I can't tell you more because as I explained you before it had been difficult to work with the previous tape... So thanks for the information. Jean Michel and I are waiting to check other tapes to redo the full album to fix the issue.

This is in my messenger...[/size]

So they new about the tape, it's deterioration yet they STILL released it. Talk about making mugs out of the fans. Sorry, but that is not on as that's taking advantage of people.

They just can't stop beating the old horse can they? What is so terribly wrong with the old masters/remasters whatever..? Compressed distortions ftw! and a waste of valuable time imo. It's the year 2015 and they tossing out cheap CD soap to fans with the same old music though with the sound in worse shape than ever before. I can't get my head around this. :roll:

So they possibly have a messed up tape and they just go with it? What the?

Just delay this one than! :|

I'm confident that organizing an infiltration mission to the Europe 2 archives to retrieve the original full unedited recordings of Paris La Defense would be far more worthwhile and less dangerous than getting new proper remasters. :P

To get back to the Zoolook remaster, did you notice they even messed up the sticker of the "30th anniversary edition"? It reads "from the original analog tapes". The original CDs indicate DDD... WTF? Unless they transferred the DATs to analog tapes before remastering to add "warmth", of course ;-) But then that wouldn't be the original tapes either. Sad releases, really.

They have pulled RV from iTunes. I noticed that it had gone on the 24th. I also read this morning that Spotify have removed it also.

Same thing was on Hull's remaster: from the original alalog recordings.
