* In 1987, Music/ZZTop released a BoxedSet titled ''Six Pack'', featuring not-remixes of six of their first seven albums[[note]]''Degüello'' was not included[[/note]] - The band opted to remix the songs and add drum machines and occasional guitar effects, with the intention of making their early work sound more in line with their more commercially successful 80's material. Fans of their more straight blues-rock 70's sound were not happy. ''Tres Hombres'' and ''Fandango!'' had their original mixes restored for individual re-releases - if you buy a new cd copy of any of the other early albums, chances are you're getting the 1987 remixed version, unless you buy "The Complete Studio Albums" boxed set on Rhino from 2003 which consists of all original mixes of everything including the 6 albums that were remixed in 1987.

* The Warner Bros. CD issues of Peter, Paul & Mary's 1960s catalog is remixed from the multitracks by Lee Herschberg and Peter Yarrow to make the music sound more "current" for the time with added reverb, etc. in 1989. The "Very Best Of" compilation and the "Carry It On" boxed set on Rhino revert to the original mixes and audiophile labels have issued some of their albums on SACD using the original mixes.

** "Valerie" by Music/SteveWinwood was originally released as a single in 1982; it's highest position was #70 on Billboard. It was remixed in '87 for Windwood's best of 'Chronicles'. This version peaked at #9, and is the one most listeners are familiar with.

* The Everly Brothers' The Very Best of The Everly Brothers compilation on Warner Bros. issued in 1964 contains half of the material being stereo re-recordings of several of their biggest hits on Cadence Records including Bye Bye Love, Wake Up Little Susie, All I Have To Do Is Dream, etc. and half original Warner Bros. hits including Cathy's Clown, Crying In The Rain, Ebony Eyes, Walk Right Back, etc. Although there have been many comprehensive compilations of their original Cadence hits and compilations of their Warner Bros. hits since this compilation came out, The Very Best Of... has never gone out of print and for a time in the 1960s, this was the only compilation of anything resembling their Cadence Records hits in print.

* Gordon Lightfoot's 1975 best seller "Gord's Gold" which features half re-recorded United Artists material (such as Canadian Railroad Trilogy, Early Morning Rain, etc.) as not only does UA/Universal still own the 60s catalog, the sound of the 60s material didn't match the 70s catalog in style, and half original Reprise material including "If You Read My Mind," "Sundown," "Rainy Day People," "Carefree Highway" among other tracks. The 1988 compilation "Gord's Gold Volume 2" contains the bulk of the material in re-recorded form, including "The Wreck of The Edmund Fitzgerald," with the 4 original recordings of classic recordings being "Make Way (For the Lady)," "Ghosts Of Cape Horn," Baby Step Back," and "It's Worth Believin'." The "Songbook" boxed set and the "Complete Greatest Hits" compilations on Rhino revert to 100% originals including the UA material being licensed from EMI.

* Many rock recordings in the 1960s that were released in both mono and stereo versions have stereo mixes with substantial differences from the mono version apart from using stereo sound. The artists themselves concentrated more on the mono mixes, most notably Music/TheBeatles. The stereo mixes were generally slapdash affairs with lots of GratuitousPanning and mono mixes are prized by collectors, though stereo mixes are all that's generally available on modern formats, even with their inferior sound.

** Steve Hoffman remastered all of Music/TheDoors' albums for 'Audio Fidelity'. They use the original mixes (see above), but rather than completely ignore the remixes, a few tracks from each album were doubled up; once as a part of the original album, and again as bonus tracks in their remixed from! To put that into context, ''any'' sort of bonus track is a rarity amongst audiophile releases.
