4.0 out of 5 stars Bryan Loren, 13 April 2012
This review is from: Bryan Loren (Audio CD)
Another commendable re-issue from BBR but it's such a shame that they continue with their policy of using vinyl for the bonus tracks instead of the master tapes as once again they have done on this album. I have a lot of BBR releases and it's the same for most if not all of them with regards the bonus tracks. I assume it's for financial reasons as other labels such as Funky Town Grooves use the master tapes for every single track on their re-issues including bonus tracks so why can't BBR do it?

BBR do a sterling job with their re-issues but it just leaves a bad taste when you can hear that tell-tale vinyl rumble. Shame.

3.0 out of 5 stars Regina Belle All By Myself / Stay With Me, 4 Oct. 2011
Regina Bellle fans will already own these albums on CD so the attraction was the bonus material particularly the remix of How Could You Do It To Me which has not been on CD before but Super-Bird Records have done what many other lables do these days which is rip music from vinyl instead of using the master tapes. The problem in this case is that the vinyl rip is so bad on this particular track it's embarrassing.

This 2CD package is a nice starter for people getting into Regina Belle for the first time but for completists who thought they were getting a track under the "first time on CD" banner then you will be massively disappointed as I was. For me it was a complete waste of money.

If you are going to be lazy and rip music from vinyl Super-Bird (please don't tell me Columbia Records couldn't have sent you the master tape for this track) then at least try and do a proper, professional job rather than (excuse the pun) "rip" people off.

A very annoyed punter who will not buy their releases blind anymore without checking beforehand to see if they have pulled this stunt again with their bonus material.
