This review is from: The Wrong Box (Audio CD)
Yet another release to avoid then - and on the same label (Harkit)as The Dove / Boom / Follow Me which all seem to be remastered from LP - mostly Japanese. I would most definitely question their authenticity and would sooner wait for a legitimate issue than pay full price for a pawltry few tracks mastered from LP. I can create my own CD if I'm desperate - for next to nothing.
How do these people get away with releasing such inferior products and selling them at full-price?

Mr. Russell C. Witheyman says:
the masters for many of Barry's scores are lost or destroyed ( The black hole,raise the titanic etc to name a few) so the only way is to either release a copy of the vinyl transfer onto CD or like silva screen have done re-score the entire music with an orcestra like the prague philarmonic. These are legit releases and of course Barry will be paid for his work. Barry himself stated his desire to see many of these re recordings or vinyl transfers released as he was disheartned so many had benn lost.

Mr. P. Greenhill says:
The problem is that Harkit's mastering is of poor quality and they have a 'couldn't care less attitude'. The legitimacy of their releases is controversial to say the least. A better release of 'The Wrong Box' is now available from Intrada.
