Whilst the track listing for the nostalgia buff is very appealing the big disappointemnt is that the majority of tracks have been re-recorded by one or more members of the original group and are by no means as good as the original releases. I do wish Amazon would specify this fact when advertising.

I too made the mistake (because there was no information to the contrary) of assuming that all the tracks were origianl recordings: almost none of them are!
Dont waste you money on this set; and I also agree that Amazon have a responsibility to describe their products accurately - so they should have made it clear that these were all re-records!

I bought this collection at an excellent price from possibly the biggest seller on here only to find Disc 8 was missing from a 'Very Good' description. I did get a full refund but then playing the discs found some to be jumping and despite cleaning didn't change. So, beware. Having listened to some of the discs we have decided to purchase it again, in the hope of getting a perfect collection. That should show how good we think it is. We are fussy, but have found it to be an excellent collection. Admittedly most tracks "Have been re-recorded by the original artist or one or more members of the original group" apart from a handful of "Original recordings", but we still found it worth buying for the music that's on there and in spite of all the faults found it good enough to now be purchasing a 2nd copy of it so we can hopefully listen to all 8cd's and hear them without them jumping. I may not pay full price but that's more me being tight than the quality of the set. At the price you can buy it on here, it is more than worth it,
