Wounded Bird Records will be issuing his entire Bearsville output on CD start with his very first album, Jesse Winchester, and Live At The Bijou Cafe, which when originally released in 1976, was a radio-station-only album.

(3 out of 5 stars)
"Jesse Winchester is a great artist, and for his part, this is a great album. Unfortunately, the company reissuing this and other Winchester albums, Wounded Bird Records, did a horrible job of remastering it. The sound is much too bassy and flat, with virtually no high end at all. It needs to be run through an equalizer to listen to it. The CD deserves 5 stars for Winchester's part, and 1 for Wounded Bird's part, which is why I gave it only 3. I've emailed Jesse about this problem and he responded with: "I'm afraid I have no control and no influence over the companies who release those records. I was not consulted or even informed by Wounded Bird. I haven't the money for a law suit....I'm very sorry about this. I wish there were something concrete I could do, but due to my own naivite as a young man and the unscruplous people I was doing business with, I have no artistic or financial control whatever over those recordings. We live and learn.""
