Great CD, but dosen't work in car stereos

"Excellent recording, but I CAN'T LISTEN TO IT ON MY $2500 CAR STEREO! The copy protection stops it from playing on high-end digital CD-players, because they use the same methods of data access as computer CDROMs (for skip protection and error correction), so the CD dosen't play at all. Which makes it useless to me: I'm going to return it and write an angry letter."
BEWARE OF COPY PROTECTION

"I regret buying this CD due to the copy protection. I've spent 15 minutes trying to play this thing on my PC and still have not heard the 1st note of music. It's a total pain in the butt.
The CD plays fine in my car, however I like to listen to CD's at work and I'll be damned if I want to jump through hoops to play them. I've tried to contact Charley Pride via his web-site, but the email link is broke. I wonder if it was intentional.
If you want to play this CD on your PC or if your stereo has a combination CD/DVD player, think twice before putting out your hard earned money."
Charley - You Are on the Wrong Side of the Issue

"I have this CD. I also have the Australian CD version of the same album of songs and includes more songs in a tribute to Jim Reeves but guess what - the Australian release is not encrypted. Charley, the music industry has lied to the public from day one. When they dropped vinyl to go to CD they claimed they had to double the prices of albums from 7.98 to 15.98 to 'cover the costs'. but everyone knows now what a lie that is. On top of that, we know that they also use the most ridiculous accounting sytems in which nothing ever makes a profit except when it comes to their bottom line. The music industry has sat on their collective butts when the internet became popular and think that they can continue to rip people off. Instead of trying to sue people and thinking that they're 'losing' money because of the internet - they should be looking for ways to improve things and taking advantage of the added interest the internet has brought to music. Charley, your music has always been the best, a cut above the noised that they call country today. I'll forgive you for this release for I think you only did it for the publicity. The fans are not the problem. The music industry is the problem.Seek out and find the Australian version of this CD -
RAJON - RMGR0107 - it has 21 selections in his tribute to jim Reeves. The 'copy protected' version only has 15. You can't have it both ways. Just say no to so-called copy protected Cd's - we have a right to do whatever we please for our own use with the music we purchase. And quit trying to rip us off with your outrageous prices.Overall - this is a great album to listen to as are all of Charley's albums. One could only wish he'd do more of these types - such as the tunes he's done by Brook Benton in concert - Think Twice is a great tune he's done onstage. REcord those kinds of tunes..."
