Thanks homie. Back catalog as in the A Personal Reference stuff or the waaaay back catalog like Knee Jerk Reaction?
A personal reference for sure. If you go further back a full on rerecording versus a remaster job would be needed, and probably welcomed too.
I love rough cuts in punk and indie, but I like hi-hop/Rap to be a little cleaner, but not as clean as the mainstream stuff.
Thanks man, I agree in preferring hip-hop a little more polished than lo-fi in most cases.
Remaking/remastering A Personal Reference would be tricky because of all the samples involved, some songs even having five going on at the same time. Good Goose and I made that project right before he began working with Tommy Boy and knew his days of sampling were going to have to come to an end, so it sort of became our project where any and all things we ever wanted to sample were thrown on the table and played with. I think "Gary" only has the Biggie vocal sample, "Justdait" has the Just Kait and The Room sample, "Young Gifted and Chaz" has 'The Critic' sample and everything else is just bursting with samplesamplesample.
Probably would be worthwhile to make sample free versions, haven't really thought of that until now but it's worth considering, thanks.
