Great album bad package
on 8 April 2013
First of all this is a great album, Your song, 60 years on, The greatest Discovery and the great King must die to name a few. The mastering is very good, keeping the quality levels at a high standard,but this album always sounded good even my original LP is still sounding great.
Disc two has some interesting out-takes and other bonus material, a piano led Your song, and not just a live selection from a concert at the time, which for me never warrants a deluxe issue. so why did i knock of a star?. Well after all the effort with the disc's, you get the worst tackiest box to hold the Cd's in I have ever had the pleasure of buying.
Gone is the plastic slip case,that you get with most of the Universal deluxe issue's, instead the cardboard box is wrapped with what only can be described as sellotape, wrapped around the box, which you then have to cut open, looks very tacky, so i thought well as it looks really bad now, perhaps I'll remove it, err bad idea this the rips the picture of the cover. This is ridiculous and not what you expect for £12.99. Considering CD's it cost less than a £1.00 to manufacture a CD,this is a disgrace and Universal should be ashamed with this package, A good set ruined by cut backs, bring back the original deluxe packaging.
