    What is this ‘mastered for iTunes’? If I buy it and play in my car radio will it not sound good? Thanks.

     
  • Any idea if PSB is going to have a super deluxe version of the album through the Vinyl Factory, like their last 2 releases? I thought I saw on their twitter, they hinted something about it, but I haven’t seen anything since.

    RE: j

    Thanks! Per that document, “Songs and albums submitted to the iTunes Store as remastered content will be reviewed to ensure that the sound quality shows discernible improvement.”

    Guess they were asleep at the wheel for the Duran remasters.
