The MCA box was cut by Chris Bellman with TP's engineer Ryan Ulyate at Bernie Grundman Mastering from the original analog master tapes and the records were pressed by QRP. PTL!!!!!!
Chris Bellman just emailed: he also cut the Warner Brothers box. He didn't say from what, but I assume the more recent TP albums were digitally recorded. However, I'm waiting for a response.l
