"Finally! Painter released on CD! Thanks Wounded Bird for bringing back this amazing classic album. This will make a lot of people happy in the mid-west who have searched for this collectible album for years. Usually when a copy could be found, it demanded a very high price. This album contains the K-SHE classics "West Coast Woman", "Tell Me Why" and "Goin' Down The road". I'm not sure where else this got radio airplay, but St. Louis' K-SHE 95 has played Painter since 1973. You can still hear these songs on the Classics show Sunday morning. Let's hope that Hammersmith (the next incarnation of Painter) is also released. Kick back and enjoy some great hard drivin' 70's Rock!
Great Band Bad Mastering

"I am also from St. Louis. I have had a vinyl rip of this album for several years and I suggest buying the vinyl and not this disc.
After listening to the first track I knew something was wrong. IMO this disc is sourced from mp3 not from wav files. Two different software programs verified this. The Wounded Bird release has the "tinny" mp3 sound that the vinyl will not give you. It is unfortunate that rerelease labels are stooping to using mp3 mastering and then converting mp3 to wav for their disc. If anyone wants to put this on their portable player you should know that converting mp3 to wav to mp3 really chops the music to junk!
