VERY DISAPPOINTING SOUND QUALITY
on 19 October 2011
I do not own this box set but I have listened to it,it is a huge work and contains so much of Dusty's output including rare tracks and is very well presented,MY COMPLAINTS CONCERN ONLY THE SOUND QUALITY,ACTUALLY A LACK OF IT.
I always try and find the best possible recordings/transfers,by this I mean the tracks must be stereo where possible and properly remastered,this is sadly often not the case with older pop music AND IS THE CASE HERE,AS ALL THE EARLY TRACKS AND SOME LATER ONES ARE MONO AND HAVE A VERY MUDDY SOUND QUALITY.NOT GOOD ENOUGH IS WHAT I SAY,BUT DO HAVE A LISTEN AND MAKE UP YOUR OWN MIND,try the USA Amazon site for sound samples,they have more than the UK site.
I realise most reviewers have raved about this box set,but they are reviewing only the music,which is beyond the 5 stars,my rating is 1 star for sound,5 stars (the max allowed) for Dusty's music,average 3 stars.
