The Dead for instance have got loads of low-fi bootlegs but you can still hear the music for who the artists are. I often prefer a terrible 4 track garage recording of rock n' roll to a new studio pasteurized cheeze technique of recording. I mean part of the art of rock music is just capturing the concept of song as it happens rather than dabbling with knobs. If you want some audiophile rock music listen to some Zappa LP's he was very particular about his microphone. The hardest thing of all to accept is that a symphony is always superior to gear. I guess what I'm trying to say is many lo-fi albums do capture the music in a unique way. Jefferson Airplane with the signature fuzzy treble. I love that stuff. Others well you know shrill sounding...clipped compressed crap for radio play...too bad.
