Customer Review

on 5 March 2014
I've NEVER before returned a CD simply because it sounded average, but I would have definitley returned this if it weren't for being fully charged for the Auto Rip thing (nice little scheme there Amazon).

Many of these tracks are transferred from vinyl, and not very well at all. If tapes absolutely aren't available (which I find hard to believe for many of these tracks) then vinyl transfers can sound good as an alternative IF remastered and restored well. However, the tracks that are from vinyl just sound horrid. In fact, I suspect the tracks not from vinyl are simply from original CD singles or other CD compilations. Don't major record companies bother retrieving tapes any more? (actually, I know they don't)

The track list is ok, but seriously, the sonics of this CD is rubbish, especially noticeable when listening to a track from vinyl followed by a track which is not. The difference is like watching a VHS compared to Blu Ray.

The majors are really screwing up reissues and comps. This is a good example of just how bad.
