Remastered from the original analog tapes

Monk, considered one of the greatest Jazz pianists of all time, recorded Underground in 1967-'68. It's the last recording with the Thelonious Monk Quartet (Larry Gales on bass, Charlie Rouse on tenor sax, and Ben Riley on drums) and one of the last album he made for Columbia. What makes Underground special is that unlike his other Columbia recordings, four out of the seven songs were newly composed and recorded. Not to mention its striking cover artwork, which depicts Monk as a French Resistance member in a particularly messy attic. Music On Vinyl is especially proud to announce that this recording has been specially re-mastered in the US for this vinyl edition from the original tapes.

I hope you all believe me when I say I really dig the musical taste of those folks down at MOV. I sincerely do. It's just that I question their judgement on audiophile matters. I have this record on CD and it's my favorite Monk album. I was really thrilled when I saw that MOV is reissuing it from the master tapes on vinyl, "Music On Vinyl is especially proud to announce that this recording has been specially re-mastered in the US for this vinyl edition from the original tapes". The above description is only half true. Sure a remastering was done from the original tapes; however, MOV cut this reissue from a high resolution file of the original tapes.(re:192KHz/24bit)

Naturally, this begs the question why didn't they just cut it from the remastered original? I don't know. If anyone knows please be kind and share this wisdom with me. What I do know is that I now own two CD copies of this wonderful album, one on vinyl and one on compact disc.
