Reviewing the recording quality, not nostalgia.
on 4 February 2013
Am I reviewing the same item?
This review covers only the recording quality and has nothing against the actual performance/material of Joni Mitchell or James Taylor.
With 10+ 5 star votes I'm bound to be branded a heretic with lots of 'Not Helpful' votes but wanted to share my experience such that no-one else feels somewhat mislead.
I was completely knocked back when this arrived and I listened to it (and not in a good way).
This is not only clearly a bootleg recording but it's a CD copy of a vinyl bootleg with clicks and pops from scratches on there too.
The people amazed/pleased with the quality of the recording must have very low expectations of audio quality.
Perhaps people are being blinded by nostalgia or judging based on much lower quality bootlegs?
2 Stars = "I don't like it" which I don't, as I was expecting something better based on the other reviews here.
