CD Reviews

Warning! Do not buy this CD if you are expecting originals!
Clarke Davis | Dover, New Jersey USA | 12/07/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This CD may be OK; I didn't bother to listen to it.

Nowhere in the description here did it mention that it's a live recording done in Atlanta Georga in 1980. It says that on the sleeve of the CD though. I wanted the original recordings that I know and love; not a concert "live" recording that isn't anywhere near what I was expecting. Why was this omitted from the description?

All is not lost however. I took the sleeves out, and threw the CD in the trash along with them, so now I have a wonderful (but expensive) extra blank case to put a CD in that features music I want to hear because it's original, done in a proper studio, and up to par soundwise.

Slogging this dog off as genuine recordings is reprehensible, and I suspect I'm not the only one to get the wrong end of this particular stick, according to the sales ranking Amazon posted regarding this item."
