That would be the mastering, not the pressings.

No, it can be a combination of mastering AND pressings. Bad pressings can create distortion on high-end frequencies, including cymbals, strings, and the "S" consonant. The same mastering can sound acceptable on a CD because you don't get that groove distortion. MGM stereo albums from the late 60s - and maybe before and/or after - are pressed badly. The mastering may suck too but the pressings are bad.

Chicago in the 30's (Tax) - Sessions by Reuben Reeves, Charles LeVere, Richard M. Jones, and Earl Hines. I got it a while back mostly because Boyce Brown plays on the Charles LeVere tracks, but his only real exposure is playing a straight lead melody on one tune. Otherwise not earth-shattering, but not bad.
