3.0 out of 5 stars Why only 12 tracks out of 15 on CD in Europe?, 1 Dec. 2012
By 
This review is from: Rhythm Sessions (Audio CD)
The major disappointment with this version of Lee Ritenour's Rhythm Sessions in the Compact Disc format is that it only has 12 tracks but there is Rhythm Sessions(Deluxe Edition)available that has 15 tracks.
Three tracks equivalent to 20% of the Rhythm Sessions for some reason have been removed / held back to be available on iTunes or for mp3 download on Amazon.com.

The three missing instrumental tracks are 13. TransAtlantic (Time 4:50), 14. Cycles (Time 5:47) and 15. Walk Talk Occupy (Time 5:52). Needless to say you can hear samples of these songs on iTunes if you have it or on Amazon.com's mp3 section - see the Amazon link below.

I would have preferred that the two vocal tracks were removed and replaced with two of these instrumental tracks. After all I want to hear and enjoy Lee playing guitar not to listen to some unknown vocalists singing (Unknown to me that is).
I have also found a version of the Rhythm Sessions CD available in Japan that contains all 15 tracks and comes with a DVD of the making of Rhythm Sessions.

Although this is no fault of Amazon Europe, it is very annoying not to be offered the opportunity to buy the Deluxe Edition in the superior audio format of Compact Disc.
What have the majority of Lee Ritenour's fan base in the UK and Europe, owners of CD players and HiFi systems done to deserve this kind of treatment?

Agreed! I bought Lee's album on preorder! If I knew that we, in Europe, are listeners of second grade, I would have ordered it from some Japanese store. Now, it is available also here, but what am I suppose to do with the first CD I bought if I buy this, pricy edition?! That sucks!
