I've never tried Tidal, have played with Spotify but that was a while ago. I should perhaps give these services a go again and see what is all available.

I do enjoy radio with good music and a bit of interesting chit-chat between, which is one reason I have never seriously bothered with music streaming serviices, which seem lifeless without a friendly presenter presenting interesting info between the tunes.

I have used Audacity, but not much, and I was unaware of this facility. It'll probably take me a lot of time to get the hang of it, and then more time to get each album right. And I am sure there are many like me. I personally think this is a great service. Yes, you can do it yourself, but it is not easy, and will take time. As Blizzard said, I, amd I am sure many others, would rather pay someone who has the hang of it tondo it for me. If I am not satisfied, I don't pay. None of my time or energy wasted.

The main Issue here is determined in the beginning was the word REMASTER

You could try internet radio, look for one that does specific genre/s you like...especially if they make the shows available as podcast downloads.  Or via soundcloud, which is what I do.  Find DJs or record labels that do subgenres you like, follow them. Most have very little chit-chat though, just a bit about the track being a new release on [xyz] label and so on.  Some of them are actual FM radio stations, especially in London - Rinse FM and NTS Radio...and there is Redlight Radio in Amsterdam - very eclectic DJ selectors, lots of psychedelic/folk throwback stuff and reggae/dub.

Some google work to find something that suits you.

I never listen to it live, I just follow Rinse FM on soundcloud, so I usually notice the latest sets of specific DJs/shows, try them and then maybe download.  Then the chit-chat can be a problem...One DJ on Rinse, sets I liked, she chatters on and on so much, bad enough the first time, but it makes repeat plays unbearable, weeks later hearing the same prattle about the weather in London and how it makes you feel, so it got deleted.

Been listening to quite  few internet radio stations, some good, some ok-ish, some a tad boring. But with many thouands of them from which to choose, this could be a happy Winter!

Well, after all the hype and promotion about this exercise, we did not get round to listening to any of it.  I mentioned it on leaving, to find there was no time, etc.   Another day perhaps

The system there is very revealing and would I imagine clearly display some differences.  If it can resolve substituting brass feet with teflon cones, then I expect something profound
Music is the shorthand of emotion
