Re: Remastering existing stuff...... but good.

While I agree with Homebrew on the difficulty of sorting through "versions" I think most of us have benefited from the technical audio improvement efforts certain individuals have bestowed upon some now classic recordings. If there was someway to be sure it would never lose the "Remastered" title when it was traded, I would be OK with someone's honest reworking of my own recordings, that cannot be guaranteed however. The biggest problem I see is how subjective "improvement" is and while not everyone has experience as an audio engineer, nobody has the same "ears" and internal audio equipment. The tools to perform the deed have become commonplace enough so that almost anyone could adulterate the "original" to their own liking provided they can determine the original from all the "remastered" versions.
