I'm not confusing any of that. I'm simply stating that today's typical home studio owned by a 17 yr old kid can put out better SOUND quality than anything in the 70s. And maybe youtube is the wrong place to get your vid from, but that video proves the point. The music sounds flat. The snares don't pop, there's static, the vocals aren't clear. The actual art of the production, engineering, etc may have been technically better. But the clarity of the sound is bad. Again, this could be the video quality more than the actual sound quality. But there is also a reason why audio from that time are taken and remastered with today's equipment, and re-released. on a related note: http://www.rollingstone.com/rockdai...atles-remastered-albums-due-september-9-2009/ Beatles remastered tracks due in September.
