The Mastered for Streaming Albums came about in an interesting way.
The levels for the Master Track were changed around 2010 to accomodate computer streaming.
The loud wars of the 70's, 80's, and 90's were over and a new standard was established.
The botton line is that the old style way is about 4 - 6 DB's louder than todays standards.
After acquiring a properly calibrated Mastering System, I restandardized the tracks that were
mastered for CD to accomodate the streaming services and the new world wide standards for broadcast.
The Mastered for Streaming collections were Released in 2017

The "ReMasters" collection came about when I did not like how some of the CD versions of the tracks did not always sound proper when
streamed through some sites such as "YouTube" etc. After some retrospective research I found that most of the
music before 2005 had the same issue when taken straight from CD or Vinyl. Conclusion is
they changed the rules for the streaming platforms and I was schooled in the old format such as CD and Vinyl.
Hence after hitting the books and acquiring a calibrated Mastering solution we are now able to accommodate the needs of the current dynamic industry.
