The remasters of Let it Be and Abbey road are TERRIBLE.    the mastering is a joke.

 

Sgt Peppers is very good reissue done my Giles Martin..

 

Revolver is fuller so pleasant sounding, but not as lively as the original masters.

Tbh I would imagine that a lot of online purchases would have a level of risk, as the article states, this issue isn't isolated to Amazon. 

 

Either way, thanks for sharing Marc

The box sets was the one that really worried me, if they are saying 100% of them were fakes, I'm like WTF?

I used to buy from Amazon overseas and now limited to Amazon AU.   Never an issue.  Generally try to buy direct from Amazon, not 3rd party seller and you will be fine. 

In saying that I have also bought from 3rd party from Amazon for some rare CDs and is fine.  Just need to take the usual precaution as with any other online shopping, check seller reviews, etc etc.  Plus Amazon is pretty good with refund if something don't go as planned, missing item, fake seller etc, and there is also Paypal for dispute.

 

If buyer don't wanna take the 25% risk (imho % probably less), then pay more and buy local or ask local shop to import for you.

Need to be a bit careful, the sample size was really small <100, and was also conducted by the RIAA which has a vested interest.  Those issues aside it still isn’t great whatever the level.

 

bad for consumers —> likely inferior product

 

bad for artists —>. May not be getting the full proceeds

I’m at 100% counterfeit on amazon so far (total of 2 CDs).

Obvious fakes or had to know what you were looking for? Big stores within Amazon?
