Not The Original Recordings!

"I would like to warn potential buyers that this CD by Prime Cuts/St. Clair Entertainment Group are not the original hits. I have encountered other CDs from the same company that is advertised as "[Original Recording Reissued] [Original Recording Remastered]" which are also not originals. The Archies Greatest Hits as well as this CD is an example of this subtle deception. They disclose on the back of the CD that "This album contains new Stereo Recordings performed by the featured artist(s)." Given the obvious difference in sound of the most famous song by Brook Benton, Rainy Night In Georgia, I don't understand the other reviewers' high praises for a CD with Re-Recorded songs. By the way, the cover/front insert is not the same as you see on Amazon."
Great collection of Brook Benton hits

"This is one of my favourite Brook Benton records, and the material is a little different from the ordinary Greatest Hits albums. Look out for Benton's unusual, but nevertheless, amazing version of "My Way", as well as the classics "Endlessly" and "Rainy Night in Georgia"."
A Rainy Night is all it Took

"I was sixteen, and driving down a black, two lane highway on a rainy night. I had just had a spat with my girlfriend, and I felt like the whole world was coming down on me. I turned the radio on and guess what they were playing? That's right, they were playing "Rainy Night in Georgia," by Brook Benton. How is it that--that song can give you so much comfort? I guess it's the way it sympathizes with you when you're hurting. But I don't believe the song would have as much soul by any other vocalist than Brook Benton. I know plenty other artists have sung it before, but Brook Benton gives it a life. A life that reaches out and embraces you during those melancholy times.Fellin' a little blue?--well if you're not, you will be sooner or later. Pick this CD up, then when you need some arms around you, play Rainy Night in Georgia, that's all it took for me."
