"I wonder if I have the same CD as the person who called it a rush job. I compared it with both Legendary Masters and Everybody Loves A Clown and it was on par (at least) soundwise. The liner notes indicate all songs were remixed and they sound it. I compared This Diamond Ring to a 3 inch CD put out by Rhino years ago. The remix has slightly less bass but is less hissy and cleaner."
Kind of a rush job

"I agree in part with Jeff from Iowa. The first album was not the highest quality and that could be the problem. A Session with Gary Lewis is a excellent sounding album.
Gary seems to perform many of the covers of those songs in the live shows. Overall it is a combined set of enjoyable sing-along albums which is what music is there for.
Count Me In might have been the best release that Gary Lewis did. This Diamond Ring a close second and She's Just My Style third.
Gary's covers of Palisades Park, Runaway and Concrete and Clay are exceptional.
This is a fun album and yes I wish Malibu Run (which I CD'd of the film Out of Sight) and the theme from Super Six were on CD also.
Pop in the cd, kick off your shoes and enjoy this one."
Get the BGO Release

"I have the BGO release of "This Diamond Ring" and "A Session with..." and it sounds spectacular... In my opinion BGO did their homework and remastered these two hard to find CD's perfectly! I had the original album when it was first released (first generation Beatles, Gary Lewis, Monkees, Beach Boys, etc. fan) and I KNOW how these babies should sound... THANKS BGO!!!"
