One For the Rip-Off File

"Buyer beware. I generally scan CDs looking for the infamous caveat "re-recordings" so that I can avoid them like the plague. However, this CD lacked any such proviso, leaving a buyer with the impression that the recordings are the originals. They are not. They are poor imitations and are a profound disappointment to anyone seeking the nostalgic sounds of the past. But this seems to be a trend - the stealth re-recorded CD. I'm ordinarily not one for government regulation, but its needed in order to rein in this misleading practice."
Why re-sing the classics?

"Something's wrong here. Not completely wrong, just a little off. Then it hit me, these are new versions of her old songs! This Canadian album from 1996 starts with a strange version of Downtown and then it degrades from there. I would go with one of her other collections and avoid this one altogether. This will takes its place next to my other bad CDs I'll never listen to in my basement."
Probably not what you're looking for...

"These are *awful* re-recordings of the orginals -- not just remasters, but completely new versions done with miserable sounding drum machines and cheap synthesizers. The sound seems specifically designed for elevators and shopping malls. Save yourself the trouble, and buy a different "best of"."
