Thanks for posting!
I thought this poster sums it up well: Major labels do it too - all the info should be printed on the album jacket, or available in plain sight on the reissue companies, and dealers, websites, including source tape, mastering chain (absence of digital), mastering engineer (s), manufacturing plant. If all the information is not available, there is probably a reason. Trust your ears.
I'd say its like collecting records: do your 'research' before buying.
