==MP3 mastering of CDs==
 
During 2013, Demon's subsidiary company Edsel released the entire Island Records back catalogue of [[Robert Palmer (singer)|Robert Palmer]] and [[Blancmange]]. There was initial concern on forums such as the Steve Hoffman boards that mp3 files had been used as the masters for all eight albums, as many had returned their CDs.<ref>Steve Hoffman Music Forums - The Robert Palmer Remasters http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/the-edsel-robert-palmer-remasters.327607/</ref> Annoyed fans scanned the files with professional audio-analyzing software such as Adobe Audition and Audacity, to find that all the frequencies of the recordings were cut off at 16kHz. The blog Superdeluxeedition put these claims to the manager of Edsel Records, Val Jennings, who vehemently refuted the claims.<ref>Edsel Records reject Robert Palmer MP3 mastering claims http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/news/edsel-refute-robert-palmer-mp3-mastering-claims/</ref> Superdeluxeedition has approached Nick Watson, who has produced for bands such as the Kinks, Faith No More, and the Libertines, to obtain a professional opinion on the issue. The final verdict was that all the CDs were mastered from mp3 files. The manager of Edsel did not respond.<ref>Expert Witness - Which is the best sounding Robert Palmer remaster? http://www.superdeluxeedition.com/feature/expert-witness-which-is-the-best-sounding-robert-palmer-remaster/</ref><ref>Reviews of Robert Palmers Edsel catalogue on Amazon UK http://www.amazon.com/Pride-Riptide-Robert-Palmer/product-reviews/B00E40I3AQ/ref=cm_cr_dp_see_all_summary?ie=UTF8&showViewpoints=1&sortBy=byRankDescending </ref>
