This guy seems like hes had enough of poor quality tunes http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/thr-esq/tutm-entertainment-lawsuit-claims-buyers-690554
There are a few reasons why musicians with past hits go back to the studio recording.
One is contracts. A record label might own the sound recording of an '80s hit in perpetuity, but there might be allowances for musicians to record other versions once their record contract expires. Another reason might be copyright termination. Thanks to the 1976 Copyright Act, authors can recapture copyright grants after 35 years of publishing. Once they do so, they might be interested in re-recording their hits so as to be able to sell or license a version that will no longer have to be shared with the record label.
But the proposed class action contends that it is fraud to sell unlabeled re-recordings this way, allegedly depriving consumers of informed choice. The lawsuit seeks at least $5 million in damages.
I too get annoyed with this activity, you sit down ready to enjoy the tuneful melodies you remember from yesteryear and hear something "similar" but not the tune you remember all the notes and quirks from, maybe we should all que up to sue
