Thank you. Both you and El.D. seem to get my question. It's the aesthetic of that *perfect* (to YOUR ears/spine) version to which any other performance would pale.
Lol to your polished peeve! Can you imagine B.B. King's singing "digitized"? YUCK!
stanwshura that's another point -music honestly sounded much warmer and more orgnanic when it was on vinyl or tape - even digitised versions of 'warm' don't work. That's why many guitar amps still have old fashioned valves with electronics!
Ah, you actually point to the more subtle trick of modern music production, be the style that of the boy-toy du jour, or a very talented and blues-influenced K.T. Tunstall. I was bemoaning the blatant roboticizing of vocals debuted +/- '98 by Cher.

Ahhhh....alas a fault of my question. Sometimes live performances ARE released in a future recording! I agree, there. The Cranberries did a KICKASS performance of Dreams at a show in Paris that I like better than the slightly timid studio take.
