Although retired now, Ron mastered A LOT of records and CDs over the years. Unfortunately, especially in the later years some of those records were pressed at inferior plants (e.g. URP and Rainbo) and if they don't sound so hot, that's why. Further, I think he wasn't always given the best source to work with, but did the best job he could under the circumstances. A lot of my favorite work by him is on CD rather than vinyl. He did great work on a number of Blue Note titles during the 80s and 90s and those discs are something I always look for when browsing the used bins.
