They should've used the original versions

This review is from: Neil Diamond: The Greatest Hits 1966-1992 (Audio CD)
I was really looking forward to this disc, being a neil diamond fan. As I got to the middle of the disc, my joy turned to horror. They used the live versions of the songs for nearly half of this collection! When I got this collection I was expecting to hear the original versions of these songs, not some re-done live versions. The worst is this cover of a cover where Neil does a reggae version of Red, Red, Wine. It is truly atrocious! Why oh why do they do this? The same thing happened with the Paul McCartney Wingspan CD where they put on a live version of "Coming Up". Things get better from I am...I Said on Disc 2 onward, fortunately they weren't able to find some tacky live versions of these songs.
