Agreed, on the sentimental value, and the vintage look and feel of the old boots. But I for one, sure appreciate the uncounted upgrades made through the years that have made so many shows palatable. Much of what we consider common knowledge nowadays, has come via the far superior sound and speed. I recall one show from 1970 called (I think) "Mick's Birthday Party" which was just abysmal sound. And then the first vinyl 'Paris '65' show that was flat-out un-listenable. The speed problems, coupled with the screaming made it 45 minutes of wobbly white noise. But I dutifully dug it many times; required listening. Now of course we are able to hear it in almost perfect quality.
