Len's Fabulous...This C.D Isn't.

"By now there should be a much more extensive collection of this groovy singer's work on C.D.The poor sound quality here is typical of early C.D's.I've got a copy of Len's original 1965 album, 1-2-3, and there are so many great songs on it that aren't here and the sound of the original recordings is SO fabulous...so sharp and LOUD, baby.Len Barry represented all that was right about mid-'sixties American pop/dance music, when the coolest thing a white singer could do was sound like a black guy, which Lenny does, in trumps. I'm amazed there isn't anything better out yet.
If I were you I'd wait until that happens. These recordings sound muddy and bassy.P.S. One thing I did like about this collection is the very groovy intro, which I've never heard before, when Lenny thanks all the D.J's for making his song (1-2-3) a hit...he talks in his hip/cool voice, over a swingin', switched-on, finger clickin' soundtrack...check out the soundbite for a cool taster."
