Disrespectful format, excellent music,
This review is from: Naked Thunder + Toolbox + Cherkazoo (Audio CD)
I write this review to warn potential buyers that this is a three album set crammed into two CDs. Which would be fine if the last three songs on Toolbox didn't end up on CD2, before Cherkazoo. I find this disrespectful to the albums, the music and the artists. I'm not sure I would have bought this set had I known this, I probably would have paid the extra price for each respective album. Maybe this doesn't matter much to anyone but me but I thought I'd put it out there.
Aside from this the music is excellent, the set looks great and the booklet is very satisfying (as always with these Gillan reissues). I'd give it four stars but tearing Toolbox in two forces me to knock one off the top.

I agree that this CD set is disrespectful to Toolbox. Also, the Naked Thunder album is badly edited down to fit onto the CD. 20 seconds or so have been cut off the ends of some tracks (with quick fadeouts) to fit CD1. Much better to buy the albums separately (The Eagle remasters from 1998 are good and quite reasonably priced from sellers).
