Biggest Cher Fan Gives This The Thumb Down

"What was all the chat about this set having a few remixes and liner notes? This is an abomination. This is just the 3 Geffen CDs - CHER / Hear of Stone - 2nd album cover and LOVE HURTS - second album cover with the three liners shoved into a corner 4-spot. It is UN - B E L I E V A B L E that Geffen/Universal released such a disrespective compilation. I am in shock. ONCE AGAIN one of the greatest vocalists of our time gets the shaft. I will NEVER ever EVER understand who WHO is behind the incredible injustice given to this woman's recordings. This is so amazingly wrong. I thought for once "they" could get it right. DAVID GEFFEN: HERE ME & ALL CHER FANS : DO YOUR GIRL RIGHT - YOU HAVE THE POWER, BUDDY."
NIce to have if you didn't have..

"Yes it is a good idea to have Chers' 3 geffen cds here in a box. But I agree this is not a new set with any embellishment for Chers' fans..
I love her 3 lps from this period,particularly the "Heart of Stone" and "Love Hurts" lps.
However Cher is being marketed rather un-creatively, and there is no reason for the die hard fan to spend money for the very same music they have had access to for years!
Music good,marketing not so good."
This is not a "Box Set" !!!

""Box Sets" are multiple CD collections of a career retrospective that include the hits, the rare songs, unique songs that were included in movies or tribute CD's, and unreleased songs that were recorded for specific CD's or vinyl albums that at the time were not deemed worthy of inclusion in said albums.
This is a marketing ploy that allot of record companies are using these days by packaging 3 popular albums together with packaging that looks like a real "box set" and hoping that the consumer like a grandma or someone who does not know any better would buy it as a gift or the like. CBS/Columbia use this allot.
It is a rip off ploy. I liken it to a record company releasing a CD, then 3 months down the road releasing the same CD with a few more additional songs on it. Carly Simon did it. So did Heart and Mariah Carry. What a rip off!!! Especially since the songs cannot be found anywhere else!!!!
Marketers. Can't live with em, can't live....well, with them!!!!
