Everything recorded on tape has to be digitally remastered to get it onto a CD ...

There was a tendency earlier on in the early days of CDs where people put whatever master was there that included a certain track instead of going back and finding the originals. There was a sloppiness during a decade or two where business didn’t prioritize catalog releases. They didn’t go that extra mile to find the generation before."

With Elvis 75 this issue becomes an historic artefact as the state of the art remastering technology* available today appreciably enhances both the vocal and instrumentation, providing a rich listening pleasure. Put on the headphones, turn off the lights and let Elvis transport you to places you probably haven’t been to for a very long time!

Sidebar: Ernst on the remastering process for Elvis 75......

“If you had the ideal way to listen to this you’d have it in the recording studio with the actual analog tape playing back on the machine it was recorded on and the speakers it was recorded on. This is the constant struggle for us, to get closer and closer to that. With the new technology we can transfer the tape with a higher resolution. We can work with it in 24-bit, 32-bit environment, and make sure we get as close to the exact sound as the analog tape. … We’ve taken every one of Elvis’ 711 masters and tried to do a better job on them. On some the improvement will be more important than on others. It all depends on how well we did before. It’s interesting to do it. It’s a joy to do it. I think that most people, unless they sit there and A/B it versus what they had before, they’re just gonna say ‘Wow, this sounds great.’”

While I have not had the time to do a full A/B comparison of the 100 tracks on Elvis 75 with their earlier incarnations, a comparison of a cross-section of the recordings puts me in no doubt that the sound on the Elvis 75 set is not only usually crystal clear but also powerful with great tonality and, importantly, a very strong balance between each track's vocal and its backing. 

Vic Anesini is to be congratulated on a wonderful remastering effort which brightens the Elvis musical mosaic and breathes new life into a number of tired tracks while at the same time re-invigorating others!

Anesini's work allows the jazz piano feel on Heartbreak Hotel to shine; the angst of Good Time Charlie's Got The Blues to seep through your senses and brings a fresh vibrancy to sensational 50s tracks such as Paralyzed and Wear My Ring Around Your Neck.
