A Big Let-Down!

"Sadly, despite waiting years to get a copy of this wonderful Sammi Smith album on CD, I have to say it's not worth the plastic it's been put on. It's a recording from vinyl and not a good one at that. I do hope that we see a digitally remastered copy sometime in the future.

Sammi deserves better

"The sound on this CD is absolutely wretched, the worst sounding commercial CD I ever owned. First of all, it's from a not very good vinyl copy. It's horribly off-centered in places, and very distorted in others. Secondly, the CD sounds like it was either pressed from a very low bit-rate MP3, or it was subjected to some severe noise reduction. Whatever the case, the sound is all muffled and swishy. My scratchy vinyl copy sounds much better than this.
Sammi Smith was a wonderful singer with a beautiful, soulful voice. Her first album ranks among my all-time favorites by anyone. Varese managed to put out a nice sounding compiliation, (from real tapes, it sounds like). I can't understand why her first album doesn't get the same treatment. Instead, we have this abomination.
She deserves much better than this.
5 stars for the music, 0 stars for the sound."
Very Happy to find this CD

"I am rating this album 5 stars on the general principle it has always been one of my favorites. I have the vinyl from back in the day & have been looking for the cd. I have now completed my quest to replace all my old favorite albums with the new technology.Yippie!!!!
I also hope a remastered copy comes out so I can really enjoy "Sunday Morning Coming Down" and "When Michael Calls". These 2 selections are incredibly sweet!
RIP, Sammi. Your talent was huge and I will always appreciate it."
