  • is it time to sell the OGs?

    is it time to sell the OGs of classic rock and buy the reissues?
    the sound on some of these resent reissues is so much better. the SGT peppers 50th. a few years ago the Hendrix Axis mono remaster is the nicest sounding record ive ever owned. Last years Pink Floyd remasters on Pink Floyd Records...

    No, irrelevant of the sound quality, unless there was a noted fault on the 1st press. an original is a piece of art and history, no comparison

    And re Hendrix Electric Ladyland on Track sounds 10 times better than any of the Polydor reissues

          Have to say, I'm thinking the same thing of selling off the Mojo OG's (i.e. the ones I keep for the sake of having OG's rather than the ones I'm actively playing). I think the interest in vinyl is peaking (or going to peak quite soon) and it's all coming down to condition rather than sound quality. Yes, there's some poor 'old digital remastering on a disc' LP's, but there's also some good reissues these days so difficult to make the call.

          Just ordered the Terry Riley 'Persian' reissue which I have high hopes for but am paying what I would typically pay for an OG. That's when I question whether I should wait until I see it out in the wild but finding a clean copy of that one has eluded me for years!

              if you treasure them for something other than playing them then keep em.
              Otherwise flippler flipper!

                German Polydor is very good.

                      Will do, although it could be a week or so before I get it

                      Paul-K - for a cheaper option on the Led Zep, I'd recommend the French OG's (ones with 'super groups' or 'pop music' stickers). Think they're Barclay pressings but they've got that bold punchy sound that works for early Zeppelin. Similarly the debut Hendrix Barclay repress of the mono is IMHO better than the UK OG:

                        There are certain records I would sell and certain ones I wouldn't.... E.g. I would never sell my original pressings of Soft Machine - Volume Two, The Electric Prunes - Release Of An Oath or Ultimate Spinach - Behold & See but if the likes of The Soul Searchers - We The People or Eddy Senay - Step By Step were to dramatically increase in value I would sell them and buy the reissues, same goes for a lot of my funk and soul in fact.
