It's a nice idea to put 4 Fleetwoods albums together on 2 cd's, but in 2013, when enyone can remaster audio by using variety of pc remastering programs, it is sad to release a cd with such poor sound quality.
But Jasmine records is well known for using the expired copyrights in Europe, and doing a sad job with the sound on their cd's.
Back to the Fleetwoods, anyway.
If you want to own a high quality compilation with all the hits and rare album tracks (65 tracks) please search for 'Chronicle Through The Years' double cd. The sound is perfect, one would think that the songs were recorded yesterday, not 50 and something years ago.
All in all, I don't think that Jasmine cd will find the way to mu cd player again. Such a shame and vasted oportunitty..

Somebody once asked how to be be able to define a "Rock & Roll" song & was subsequently advised that it was any music the kids wanted to listen to, Now that Rock & Roll has been "officially" classified, I do not think I can categorise this as anything other then Easy Listening music.
It was in the R & R period this group was at it's biggest & today is still nice listening, it's not out of place but it is unfashionable.
I like my music historically placed together & I like completeness. I sometimes have difficulty coming to terms with Jasmins' selection or more non selections on some of their other releases & at times find the pressings are not perfect tracking.
Hard to fault this CD though, 4 complete former Lp's released on 1 disc, remastered with a small booklet, at least there is one.
If we can have the remaining 4 Lp's on a later disc that would be nice.
