Wow, I certainly hadn't realized CD remastering was still so expensive
(though then again, I'm not in The Biz).

Probably a good idea in the current economy anyway.  I'm seldom in a
position to justify buying 4 CDs at once that I already own in a
different form!  Though admittedly a remastered "Death Valley Nights"
would make _Spectres_ about worth the price of admission :)  I've been
listening to the tBS _Malpractice_ version quite a bit since
"rediscovering" it a few months ago.
