I have both of these on the original CD release, but since they are old transfers they sound dead! The new disc has greatly increased sound quality because it is remastered, and this makes all the tracks much more enjoyable to listen too. Newcomers that maybe heard some of these on the radio or had the albums on vinyl, will be pleased with this purchase and really like the disc.
Many old fans of America wrote these albums off because of a more pop approach to production, but there are some real gems here that would fit right in on some of the older albums and flow. The originals written by Gerry and Dewey are fantastic, and must haves for anyone that loved their sound. If you want to get a feel good vibe going in the car or home, that brings back a lighter heart, this is a great choice. Lucky for us fans America has an international fan base which makes it possible to bring back great work like this remastered for us to purchase.
I would also check out the combo disc of Silent Letter/Alibi as it is a real keeper and must have.
