No, they are the 1990's remasters done by the original producer, from first-generation tapes
whenever possible (90+% of the time; a handful of titles had to be made from 2-track tapes made at
the time of LP mastering due to the fact that the first-generation masters were lost). As far as I
know, they are also using CD manufacturing parts approved in the 1990's.
