Nice but naughty,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rapture (Audio CD)
I was looking forward to this album as a single entity as the original double CD on CBS is a tad expensive. Its a lovely album with beautiful arrangements by Don Costa who also did great things with Dinah Washington and soon after having practically a new career with Frank Sinatra. The naughty bit concerning this issue on the Hallmark label issued by the Pickwick group is that they have neglected to include the stereo issue of the album, which ironically is available in stereo as a download through Amazon. The mono quality is fair, but loses out completely on ambience and warmth, where the special engineering of stereo sound (here reduced into one channel sound) enhances the listening experience, especially for this kind of album. Be wary of these issues, despite their low cost.
