Bill,  perhaps you could settle something I seem to remember regarding
digital CDs.  I seem to recall that *all* audio CD recordings clip upper
and lower frequencies.  This gives the impression of a 'crisp' sound,
but, due to the digital recording process frequencies are invariably
lost.  As you say, the sound quality of the analogue recordings would
then be superior.

have I got this right?
