Re: OT That 'sizzle sound' of Mp3s

I think Redding was a guitar player before he got "drafted" to play bass with Hendrix. yes?

Just to clarity: I revere Hendrix and am clearly descended from his lineage. I owe a huge debt of gratitude to his (and Eddie Kramer's) godly contributions to the modern vernacular, both conceptually and electronically.  8-)

Maybe my beef is with Noel Redding specifically?  I can listen to Zep, Sabbath and many others on vinyl and feel the bass is adequate (for the day)I just don't find Redding's bass that satisfying. Mitch Mitchell OTOH ranks right up there with Bonham in my book!  -m

For the most part, vinyl mastering and production esthetics were more mid-rangey and compared to modern production a little "honkey" sounding.  Compression and volume maximization aside, I prefer the broader tonal spectrum of modern recordings. I love Hendrix, but most of recordings still have that narrower range and less bass, giving the recordings a dated sound. MP3's of the same recordings sound dated as well. I understand the basics of high end interpolation and sampling, but still, I just don't hear it.
