Could have been better,
This review is from: The Legendary Demos (Audio CD)
The sleeve could have been better and it should have concentrated on demos from the early days.
As there are quite a number of dress photos in the book one of these should have been used to give this more a sense of period

As reflected in the 2/10 score this is not a helpful review. You wanted more demos from the early days, which is fair enough. But why? I.e. why should it have more from the early days? What book are you talking about? Do you mean the sleevenotes? They can't be seen until you have bought the product, so they can't possibly give it a sense of period. In the end what counts is the music, and your review really doesn't help anyone in that regard.

Apologies, O learned one.
We mortals were not aware that you had to be part of a club to appreciate the works of Carole King.
Sorry to be startin' on a negative note but your review and comment have really irked me.There are plenty of other things to worry about, I know, but that whole 'I liked them before you!!!' attitude should have been left behind at secondary school.
Consider, for a moment, that this CD may attract the curious new listener. Like me, for example. As a consequence of my ignorance, I had only a vague idea that CK had recently published an autobiography. Whilst I can certainly sing along to a couple of the songs from Tapestry, my knowledge of her work goes little further. This has no bearing whatsoever on my ability to appreciate what the good lady was so successful for - her songs.
Incidentally, one of the reasons why some of her demos from the early days are not included is clarified in the CD booklet - many of the demos were sung by those who actually sang the final version of the song. In some cases, the demo became the final version of the song. But I'm sure you knew that, eh?
Rant over - I'm off to study the works of other great songwriters in an effort to prove my worthiness to folk such as thee.
Yours, bowing and scraping all the way,

Thank you - noted.
If you really aren't sure what I'm on about, please take a moment to read the opening words of your initial post once more:
'If you must comment make sure you know what you're talking about..'
This is never a good phrase to use if you don't wish to sound sanctimonious.
Maybe that was your intention, who knows?
I'm not saying that you don't know your onions but try to remember that not everyone has the same level of knowledge as you.

"Richard" is one of the most pompous, puffed up nonentities to populate amazon. Check his many reviews. They are all sanctimonious claptrap.
