Proceed with caution

"I have adored BJ Thomas's remarkable baritone since I was a kid, falling in love with it first with the 1970 smash "I Just Can't Help Believing"--released after the runaway success of "Raindrops Keep Fallin' On My Head", Burt Bacharach's sprightly, award-winning "Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid" theme-- and then again with the mellow, melodic follow-up, "Most of All".
Mr. Thomas is still in fine voice here, but potential buyers should be aware that these are re-recordings of his best and best-loved songs, not the originals.
If you don't mind that, this comp is a good enough bang for your buck but if, like me, you prefer his peerless original recordings look elsewhere."
