Roberta 5 stars, cd quality? 3 at a push
on 10 June 2013
Trying to find a good sounding CD of Roberta Flack has become an annoying obsession of mine I have to say. The vinyl sound quality was great. The CDs however vary from atrocious sounding to just okay.
A quick search and I discover I'm not the only one disappointed with the overall quality of these CDs. The last track on this album is especially bad...very, very bad transfer to CD. Distortion is very evident on the last track and it sounds very much like a compressed recording, or a 'rescued' recording.
Many 'Best of' albums, no matter which artist, suffer greatly from awful sound quality to be fair. If you're happy to listen to mp3s only though it may suit.
Oh well, there are a couple of tracks on the album that I particularity like and I can live with this CD until something better emerges.
