The songs included are not the original versions; instead, they are newly recorded takes by the original artists. Unsurprisingly, there is never an instance in which a new version tops the original, so the whole "Class Of" series should be avoided.

Double Con Job
(1 out of 5 stars)

"Not only are these re-recordings of great old hits, but they're not even by the same musicians. As the original lyricist/drummer of one of the bands with a hit on this album, I can assure you that this wasn't the original band. Say, it was a six-piece group. Well, decades ago, four or five of us six sold our rights away to claim any title on future covers of our original tune(s). What you're listening to is not even a re-recording in this sense. You're listening to another band of six guys, two of whom were in the original group only, doing a cover version of our great old hit."
Yet another re-recording compilation
(1 out of 5 stars)

"This CD get's a one-star rating but that is only because I wan't able to put in a 0-star. Though the tracks are by the original artists there is only 1 track out of 16 that is the original hit. All others are re-recordings albeit by the original artists. If you like re-recordings or elevator music then this is for you but if you actually buy CD's to get the "hits" then please don't make the same mistake I did."
