5.0 out of 5 stars Sony Music Please Fix This, 16 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Original Album Classics (Audio CD)
Colin Blunstone is one of the all-time great vocalists and these three albums make a perfect CD set if your vinyl copies are long gone or you have only heard the hits. However, the beautiful opening sequence of the 'Journey' album; 'Wonderful/Beginning/Keep the Curtains Closed Today' is ruined by the insertion of track gaps where the songs segue into each other. Sony Music have to fix it and remaster the 'Journey' album while they're at it - perhaps adding the original UK sleeve art. Their initial idea in releasing this set is very welcome but this egregious error should be fixed (and should never have got past quality-control). It's a good job 'Sgt. Pepper' or Pink Floyd have not been exposed to the Sony standard of mastering. A similar problem on the recent reissue of Mike Oldfield's 'Incantations' was fixed pretty quickly by Universal once it was highlighted in reviews. The 5 stars are for the music.

A career-spanning best-of for Colin's solo and guest appearances would be very welcome but probably requires some complex licensing from all the various labels. It would be great to have the original recordings of 'Miles Away' and 'What Becomes of the Broken Hearted' on CD with the series of Alan Parsons songs collected as well.

Unlike many of his contemporaries, Colin is still in great voice and currently on tour with The Zombies. It's a really enjoyable live set and 'I Don't Believe in Miracles' from this CD box was a highlight of the show along with 'Old and Wise' from 'The Eye in the Sky'.
