Well, they sure murdered "Dance to the Music" by Sly and the Family Stone when they put a whole bunch of "modern" drum sounds on it. That's the kind of thing I hate.

But I have Abraxas by Santana on vinyl and on CD, and all the tinkly percussion is actually AUDIBLE on CD. The record sounds like it's coming through a sock. Then there were albums like Deep Purple in Rock which you had to put a penny on the headshell just so's it would stay in the groove. There were lots of technical limits on vinyl which some CD reissues were able to fix...
