1.0 out of 5 stars IMPORTANT INFO. FOR ANYONE LOOKING TO BUY THIS CD, 18 Aug 2008
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
This CD, whilst a great compilation of Lynyrd Skynyrd's most noted songs, appears to have a manufacturing/recording flaw in it. I have tried a couple of copies of this CD, and both have had the same flaw in it, so it appears every copy has it. In the last 30 seconds of the song "Simple Man", one of Skynyrd's finest in my opinion, the sound suddenly goes strange for about 2 seconds before returning to normal. It's not a jump in the CD, the sound quality just goes strange, and strange is the only word to describe it. As I mentioned, I have purchased more than one copy of this CD as I presumed this flaw would not be in all the copies, but it has been there in all the copies I've purchased, and I've had to return them all. When listening to the CD on a high quality stereo, this sound defect is hardly audible, if at all, but when listening to it through lower quality equipment, such as laptop computer speakers it is much more evident to the listener, and when listening to it through headphones, it completely spoils the song. I would therefore recommend to anyone looking to purchase this CD that they opt for an alternative Lynyrd Skynyrd greatest hits compilation, as many are available, including: Greatest Hits, The Collection, Gold And Platinum, and All Time Greatest Hits. The disadvantage of these titles, compared to this one I'm reviewing, is that they are only one disc, and therefore have less songs on them, but they will hopefully not have this manufacturing/recording fault in them. As of yet, I am unsure though. I hope to acquire one of the titles listed above soon as a replacement for this CD, which song-wise, is a great CD. Shame about the poor manufacturing/recording quality!
