Great Music, Horrible Sound

"Had high hopes for this CD. I hadn't heard most of these songs in twenty years. I always loved Mind ,Body and Soul from the time it came out in 1970. People I talk to about music, have never heard of Flaming Ember, or completely forgot about them. But folks, of a certain age would certainly remember a few of these songs if they heard them again.(Westbound #9)
The CD contains some great Motown like pop/soul cuts, similar to the Box Tops at times, or even the Jackson Five, if they had had a soul shouting lead singer with pipes like Jerry Plunk.
The big problem here is the sound quality of this CD. The packaging claims that the CD was remastered, but its the worst sounding disc I've ever heard. I've listened to field recordings of Folk music from the thirties that sound better than this CD.
What happened? - Who knows. My guess is they remastered most of these songs from Mono 45's or albums from the seventies.
Whatever the case its a damn shame because there are some great songs here if you could actually hear them through the mire."
