OK so let's put this album into perspective. If you download it, it costs less than 6p per tune. I put this in before all the purist record collectors come on and pull it apart track by track. On a couple of tracks, the remastering has created strange effects. Certainly effects that are not on my original mono singles. I am also not convinced that every track is the original single release. A couple of the tracks sound as if they were copied from a Dansette onto a tape recorder (remember doing that!) But as I said, for 6p a tune what the heck!
This album is a fantastic trip down memory. I have gone for the download, previous years I have purchased the box sets which are beautifully presented. Buy it, in whatever format, and enjoy it for what it is.
I was worried that that the Cliffs Law change to copyright might stop these sets being published, I hope not as I really am looking forward to 1963-1967, and I don't want to wait another 20 years to hear them.
