I have heard the Kylie abbey road sessions is quite good and well produced, I own none of her music but heard this is really good for non Kylie fans too! Any confirm if the mastering is any good?
Re. the thread, I've always been pretty dissatisfied with Motörhead CDs, although. THE WORLD IS YOURS is better.
Some greatest hits or best of... type albums, especially for artists that've endured a long career - changing labels several times - I find the quality is so mixed.

Just bought "Just a little lovin'" by Shelby Lynne. I had heard it on Spotify before, but it sounds even more impressive now. The songs are sweet, and it is gorgeously recorded, mixed and mastered. And for less than 9 €, it's a no-brainer to me
The ones on Sanctuary aren't that great. The earlier releases on Castle or EMI are nearer the original analogue pressings, if not the same tape and sound much better; I have Overkill, Bomber, AoS, NSTH and possibly Iron First, and they're excellent (IMO). You'll find them in secondhand shops from time to time or the 'bay.
