Thanks for your response Richard.

Yes I have heard a portion of it.

I KNEW that would probably be the first response from someone, but if you read my post as intended,
I was specifically commenting on The Buddy Holly Story Vol. 2
and hoping to get a conversation started about the mono version of that release.

With regard to the release you mentioned (and here I go, allowing the topic of my own post to be changed), I still have some unanswered questions.

Were the ACTUAL multi track masters created by Jack Hansen
used for the new mixes, or were they digitally created by extensive use of equalization? (as in the poorly executed
Buddy meets the Hollies track)

Was the roller coaster e.p an authorized release, or more of a gray market

There are no multi track tapes for two of the Hansen tracks, therefor no "true stereo" versions can be created.
Yes, several youtube folks have made some very clever
and quite convincing "mono to stereo" conversions of classic rock and roll songs using up to date digital
technology, but they are not truly "mixed", rather
e.q.'d. I actually admire some of them for attempting to stay true to the feel of the original mono recordings.
Others are more of a ham-fisted ego exercise and are quite awful.

How were the two "mono only" Hansen overdubs handled
for the roller coaster release?
