> Harry Pearson, founder of The Absolute Sound, and one of the most vocal and ardent backers of 
> high-quality classical music remastering and reissuing, has died:
> http://thehighfidelityreport.com/
>
> All of us who enjoy listening to high-quality digital versions of "golden age" recordings, 
> especially those from Mercury Living Presence and RCA Living Stereo, should raise a glass to 
> Harry's memory. In the pages of The Absolute Sound, Harry celebrated high quality recordings in 
> that dark time when LPs were fading out and CDs were new. He lambasted low-budget/lousy-sounding 
> remasters and used his small but influential pulpit to cajole and prod the record companies to do 
> the right thing by their high fidelity analog recordings. Harry's public shaming and encouragement 
> definitely raised the bar on all aspects of remastering old recordings for modern formats. He also 
> positively influenced the LP revival, and held hardware and media manufacturers' feet to the fire 
> on issues of fidelity, quality and musicality. Finally, Harry moved forward with a language 
> describing audible comparisons and contrasts, taking the batton from J. Gordon Holt.
