asss REPRISE: like vertigo and RT, a label where ARTISTS could exist and develop. Uniquely, an age where label and artist co-existed in a trade off. Buy a Ry Cooder album and be treated to advertisments about other artists; ZAPPA< BEEFHEART< COOPER<NEiL YOUNG.
OK back to this set. More than 100 tracks! The first 5 Reprise albums. I'll let others wax lyrical about the difference between the sonic qualities of these versions versus the vinyl releases. What i have always loved about Ry Cooder is how the titles of his songs suck you into having to hear them."HOW CAN A POOR MAN STAND SUCH TIMES AND LIVE?"

On par with the GODDESS Joni Mitchell box set.
FAST LANE THRU THE GATES OF HEAVEN!
