Being someone who actually lived through the '60's as a teenager, and who therefore consumed all of the vastly different types of music available - everything from Cliff Richard to the Mothers of Invention, from Herman's Hermits to the Rolling Stones, from the Bonzo Dog Doo Dah Band to Engelbert Humperdinck..... I have some nice memories which are attached to certain records of the day.
One of these has always been Astrud Gilberto's chart-hitting 'Girl from Ipanema' and I have tried in vain many times to buy a copy. When I saw this CD on the Amazon listing I ordered straight away and couldn't wait to hear, once again, that haunting tune....
I can't describe my horror when it played - this is NOT the original version and it is NOT as good, by any stretch of the imagination. I only bought the CD for the one track, so this was a complete waste of time and money.

Not the cd I wanted, but not the sellers fault, service and delivery were excellent.
