Actually, they will sound worse than the LP if no re-mastering was done.
I believe that "RIAA equalization" (EQ needed to compensate for vinyl's
abilities to reproduce certain freq's better than others) is applied to the
LP master tape--not built into the cutter. As such, any CD made from a
vinyl master tape will sound weird because it will be produced with an EQ
that is transparent on vinyl, but audible on CD.
