    "...if you listen to the 45rpm 1/2-speed remasters that we've done, PG 1, 2, 3 or 4, it's as good as listening to the original master tapes, perhaps in some places perhaps even more pleasurable listening..." - Matt Colton, Alchemy Mastering

          I don't know. They are saying there are from the analog tapes. What happens from there is anyone's guess but sure they have been digitized. But that doesn't have to be the end of the world done properly. For instance Blade Runner or NY at the Cellar Door are digital and pretty good.

          considering its vintage, -So- might be a 16 bit digital master not an analog master.

            If you have originals from when they were originally released, let us know how they compare. Would consider getting 1 through 4 if they are really well done.

              Hi steve i got his firs 4 albums as 45rpm reissue cuts when they came out. The soundquality is stelar and not comparable to any original copy I have been able to lay my hands on. The soundstage and Bass is the area that gained the most for me. I need to stress one thing though; If you are a lucky owner of the classic records reissues I dont see why you would be considering these. Alas I am not. And if you take the price the classics go for I dont see why there should be any comparison made at all.

              BTW: I have a spare sealed PG 2 45rpm halfspeed master reissue if you are interested.

                I'm happy with my originals and many people are, but there are also many who prefer these 45rpm remasters. I think if one doesn't own the originals then these would be a nice addition to one's collection. I agree with Billy when he states that if you already own the CR pressings these really shouldn't be considered....you already have the best versions. I do think that these are going to hold their value and appreciate over time, so I'm toying with the idea of getting them.

                  I have the Classic Records reissues of the Gabriel era Genesis, but not the Gabriel solo LPs. All my Gabriel LPs are originals, mostly purchased from the first batch that arrived in my local record store way back when...

                      I stopped by a Barnes and Noble over the weekend that had the first five of these for $37.99 each. Almost bought PG4, but balked at the price, since I have an original English import of it now, as well as the DSD files on my server. Waiting for someone who has originals and the new releases to chime in.

                        I ordered SO from Music Direct yesterday. They are having a 20% off music sale that brought the price down to $30.

                          I am huge fan of PG. I've got all the original pressings.

                          I got the first batch of the reissues several months ago and compared them to the original pressings. I reckon that the reissues though digital remastering are way better than the original vinyls I bought long time ago (I was still a teenager).

                          I just got back from my usual brick and mortar retailer with So and Us. My retailer had to return all the Up's he received as one of the discs was seriously warped. he showed me two copies he still had, I could not believe what I saw.

                          I have the 25th anniversary So boxset which comprises a 33 RPM version. I will compare the 33 RPM vs. the 45 RPM versions and report back.

                            .
                            +1

                            I listen to Us and Up th other night. I dont have original copys of these so can only compare them to digital. The difference is not as big as with PG 1-4 but still noticable and certainly worth while as it si hard to get nay other vinyl version anyway.

                            BTW:
                            If you want a superlative demo disc for Bass reproduction the UP is the one for you!
