RECORD companies are banking on nostalgia to boost stagnant CD sales, with a raft of classic albums getting a digital update.

As fans transfer most of their collection to MP3 players or computers, the major labels are re-issuing dozens of musical masterpieces, from Marvin Gaye's What's Going On to the entire catalogue of Australian band The Church.

Many of the classics have not been available on CD for more than a decade, except for poor quality budget copies that did not include original artwork or updated sound. Universal Music Australia managing director George Ash said it was culturally imperative the classic albums were restored to their original glory.

"Record companies have completely bastardised their album catalogues over the past 10 years to the point you can buy Neil Young's Harvest for under $10," he said.

"These are classic albums, really special albums, and what's happening now is we are re-igniting a passion for them, but treating them with respect."

Deluxe versions of Frampton Comes Alive, Dire Straits' Brothers In Arms and early albums from The Cure, also feature bonus DVD discs and lavish artwork. The new CDs sell for between $15 and $30.

The Church's frontman Steve Kilbey said the band was approached to remaster and release its classic albums, including Starfish, by EMI Music managing director John O'Donnell.
