How do you determine which Queen vinyl to purchase?

When you consider the various features that are offered among the Queen vinyl records on eBay, you should decide what era recording you want to acquire. Are you looking for vintage collector's items, or are you more interested in a recently remastered version that offers digital clarity?

Remastered version or original recording

Remastering involves going back to the original recordings and creating a brand-new digital master, and it's often used to bring new life to older analog recordings. Audio quality can be improved from early recordings, and the various music tracks can be rebalanced to create a richer, fuller sound. Some vinyl collectors feel that albums that were originally recorded in the 1960s and 1970s are often served well with a digital remaster.

Of course, many collectors are primarily interested in archiving the original recordings. Some people prefer the immediacy and warmth of the early studio recordings, and as a result, they are more interested in originals than remastered versions. Ultimately, the decision on whether to invest in the original or remaster is a question of personal preference.
