The 20th Century Masters series is the best-selling single-artist line in music history and is being re-released by Universal Music Enterprises (UMe) in its ground-breaking, environmentally-friendly packaging format. A first for the music industry, the standard package (both sleeve and tray) will be completely paper-recyclable, continuing the company's long-standing commitment to being "green."To further reduce the amount of paper in the Eco-Pack, the CD booklet will no longer be offered. Official liner notes are easily accessible on the Internet at http://www.ilovethatsong.com/green.UMe is the first North American music company to replace the traditional jewel case with recycled paperboard sleeves and the plastic tray with trays made from PaperFoam®, a new packaging technology from Shorewood Packaging, a business of International Paper, that is paper-recyclable and biodegradable. Shorewood Packaging is the first North American packaging supplier to produce disc trays from PaperFoam®.

I'm not sure the Amazon reviewer is reviewing the same CD.
These are all the original versions that you know and love by Clapton. A short and tight collection of Eric's best solo tunes. If you are new to his 1970's and early 80's songs, this is a good place to start. If you want something for the commute, this will get you there. The "ground-breaking, environmentally-friendly packaging format" does not have notes, but does tip you off as to where you can find them on-line. There are a few pictures and the track list on the package however. It's the digital age I guess.

"Even for $6.88 at Sam's Club, this Millennium Collection CD was no bargain. It's so bad I couldn't even finish listening to it! Where did they get these cuts? They sound so muddy and poorly mixed that they must have been practice session tapes retrieved from the dumpster. The various instruments and voices keep fading in & out so you can't follow the music. Plus, the tempos and overall sounds are very different from the "definitive" versions most of us think of. I never thought it was possible to mess up a Clapton song, but UMI proved me wrong. And the liner notes? --None in this cardboard packaged "green" version."
