SOUNDS TERRIBLE I GOT A 1998 PRESSING

"I ordered this because it indicates it was a 2008 pressing but instead I got a cd that was pressed in 1998. Sounds awful compared to the cassette which I still have. I bought a different greatest hits from JS on cd and "Count On Me" on this other greatest hits cd sounds better than the "Count On Me" on this 1998 pressing of Gold. I played both on the same car cd player and boombox at home so I know this sound on Gold is lacking quality.
"Love Too Good" is the extended version on the cd unlike the truncated version on the cassette.
The Best of Jefferson Starship's early years

"For fans looking for a collection with some of their later songs like 'Find Your Way Back,' 'Jane,' 'Layin It On The Line,' etc., you're going to be disappointed. 'Gold' is a collection of Jefferson Starship's earlier songs, back when Marty Balin was member of the band.
Among the highlights here are 'Ride The Tiger,' 'Caroline,' 'Hyperdrive,' 'Runaway' and 'Miracles.' But every song here is great.
While many reviewers put down 'Gold,' I can't. I love Jefferson Starship, and I find this CD very enjoyable.
Highly recommended for any Jefferson Starship fan. This is the pre-Mickey Thomas era, and it sounds great, even today!
Highly recommended. ENJOY!!!"
