Three Dog Night's original recordings were released by ABC Dunhill Records, except for 1983's It's A Jungle, which was released by Passport. In 1973,[citation needed] executives at ABC Dunhill (Jay Lasker is usually blamed[citation needed]) decided to discard all of their multi-track recordings and mono masters to save storage space in a cost-cutting measure.[1] As a result, all re-issues on CD have been remastered using album masters (sometimes from second or third generation tape[citation needed]), which often results in an inferior sound when compared to other catalogs of the era.
