How someone could have the gaul to take this classic stuff remix it with silly effects and put it on the market is beyond me. I've never heard such a travesty, it has no artistic merits and doesn't even warrant as a 'compilation' The whole point of a song is to hear the complete thing, not a silly thirty second snippet or have it fade into something else. Don't get me wrong the Vertigo out put was in a class of its own, but this is like taking say, a painting by constable and putting a space ship in the sky or changing the sky to blue to grey. What right had Andy Votel to manipulate these great songs. Arrogance or not? This reminds me of those awful Tony Prince tapes that interspersed sixties hits with incessant drum beats to make them more trendy. This is just as bad or perhaps worse because it insults the groups that made this wonderful music and turns it into nothing but Disco 45. Who this is meant for i just don't know. The vertigo enthusiasts (like me) will find this sacrilege and those that are into this type of thing will probably be wondering what is going on. What is next? What about destroying the Harvest back catalogue or Elektra?
