I was in my local used CD shop today and I picked up "Exile on Main Street" by The Rolling Stones because I have never heard it and I've always wanted to hear it.
Anyway, I was excited to see it there and so I grabbed it quickly. When I got home I realized that I had bought the 1990 CBS version and not the 1994 Virgin remaster. Being a stickler about such things, what I want to know is: Does the 1994 remaster sound that much better than the 1990 CBS version? Is it worth the upgrade?
I've listened to the CD twice through now and the 1990 sounds OK but I don't have anything else to compare it too.
Have there been any newer remasters[newer than 1994] that don't cost a king's ransom and are worth the price as far as overall sound quality goes?
The music itself is absolutely great! Best Stones album I've heard thus far, IMHO.
