As we know this can be debated until eternity, so I won't go into that here. Opinions will vary. Heck, the debates over which vinyl sounds better than another are crazy with details and variations of versions.
What I will say is that when you start labeling the digital remasters, then you need to be slightly more specific or it will confuse some people. These last ones were not done by Jimmy Page alone.
80's CDs only = Barry Diament
1990 = George Marino supervised by Jimmy Page
Mid 201x teens = John Davis supervised by Jimmy Page
If you want to go further, then we need to bring Kevin Shirley into the discussion, as he did the remastered TSRMTS, Mothership, and HTWWW (of which Mothership is easily the undebatable worst mastering, and HTWWW isn't great either).
According WIK, Jon Astley did the original BBC stuff in the late 90's.
John Davis also did the Celebration Day release.
I appreciate the more detailed info. And I totally agree with the Shirley Mothership and HTWWW remasters. They are by far the worst of the bunch.
