Since 2008, most of the artistes in that list have had vinyl releases of their old albums.
So where did the source come from? Digital?

Even Janet Jackson is releasing her old albums on vinyl next month.

Did they claim it's from master tapes?
I compared it with my Simply Vinyl version, the Simply Vinyl blows it away completely.

OMG....The ENTIRE 12 CDs of the Carpenters MQA got cancelled!!!   JapanCD refunded my order.   What a sad day!

Anti-MQA lobbyists are winning...    :)

(Audio)


Could this be why they were cancelled?

Because they already knew there was going to be a leak....
