Five stars - but for which CD?,
This review is from: Kind Of Blue (Audio CD)
Of course this is one of the greatest albums ever made in any genre. But I see that Amazon are selling numerous editions, since the copyright has expired and everyone is out to make a few bucks off the back of this sublime work of art. Each of those editions carries the same customer reviews, though one product itself may vary markedly from another in terms of sound as well as liner notes etc. Yet Amazon is quite happy, apparently, to preside over this chaos, where the customer may purchase something only to discover it is not exactly the product as advertised (and recommended by 180+ customers). Add to this the general sloppiness in product descriptions (it would help if those responsible knew something about music) and the advantages of being able to go into a shop and buy exactly what one wants are clear - unfortunately, there aren't that many shops left, are there Amazon?

My thoughts exactly. My advice would be to seek out an edition on the orginal Columbia label.

Yes the remastered Columbia Cd from 1999 is very good.

Isn't this supposed to be a review of the product rather than a review of Amazon's product handling processes?
