If you're creating production masters for replication: ...You need a solid drive (I always suggest Plextor), quality media (Tayio Yuden is the defacto standard) and a way of checking the disc for compliancy (Block error rates, etc.).

Re: eddie offord

Eddie Offord was credited as the recording engineer, which I hadn't ever noticed before. Nice touch. I always thought he was a very under-rated engineer. Absolutely! he was incredibly skilled in fact. i still love the recording and original mix (errr... in lieu of all these 5.1/2.0 remix/reissues!)...

i) Urge Overkill - Supersonic Storybook ii) Zeni Geva - 10 000 Light Years iii) Breeders - Pod all three of these recordings show how Steve's recording technique is, in essence, 'invisible', in that it serves the style of music at hand; much like how a great cinematographer's work functions- to serv...

good question. i'm curious myself. hopefully they aren't brickwalled remasters, especially of the re-mixed versions with the drum triggers with 1980s drum sample styles. perhaps do some research on zz top fan sites where the hardcore fans give more than detailed thoughts and reviews of these re-rele...
