2.0 out of 5 stars Great music, terrible mastering November 7, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The great selling point of digital music was a wider dynamic range in which the loudest and softest portions of a song no longer had to be compressed to fit the narrower range of an LP or Cassette. Unfortunately, within the last 10 years, audio engineers seem to have forgotten all of this and now turn everything up to 11. While this may work for the latest metal release (no, it actually doesn't), what this does to most material is make it sound horrible. This is no exception.

I have a copy of Rhinestone Cowboy from a cheap foreign CD set, probably mastered off 2nd or 3rd generation source material. It sounds markedly better than what is on this MP3. Everything in the mix is turned up as loud as it will go to the point where the sound is distorted in the mix. This is absolutely the LAST thing you should be doing to music from this genre and era. If you've ever turned up music louder than your speakers can handle, or tried recording music at levels that are too loud, you'll get a sense of how brittle and terrible sounding 85% of this music sounds.

I started buying music in the CD era, and one of my greatest joys was putting on headphones and hearing sounds I never heard on vinyl or FM radio. These days, all you hear is LOUD. I know a lot of people can't tell the difference, but trust me, this set sounds terrible, which is a shame.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glen Campbell One Final Time! July 14, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Glen Campbell is a country pop icon of sorts. His hit records of the sixties and seventies were AM radio top 40 staples that received tremendous airplay, during an era that if you were heard on a transistor radio at the beach, you were a star for sure. His collaborations with Jimmy Webb are songs that have given the youth of that generation memories that will last a lifetime. To this day, when I hear "Galveston", "Witchita Lineman", "By The Time i Get To Phoenix", "Gentle On My Mind", and "Southern nights", I can immediately recall the good-times of my youth as well as Glen Campbell's short lived variety show. Having said all this, it was a joy to listen to this remastered collection of Glen's hits, that includes a nice booklet of photo's, and song by song information regarding chart status and a short essay as well. I would not pay attention to the few audiophiles, who claim the sound is distorted or too loud? I have no idea what they are talking about, except they need something to complain about, which is always human nature. This cd is a fine sounding collection of Glen's most popular hits, and is a must for anyone looking for just one Glen Campbell cd, that presents a fine overview of his career. Glen is releasing his final cd in a few months, as it was announced that he has the beginnings of Alzheimer's disease. The 75 year old country pop star, will embark on a final tour, while he still has time to perform, and I hope each and everyone of us who enjoyed his music over the years, will get a chance to see him perform one final time.

1.0 out of 5 stars A review on the sound quality only November 28, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I was really excited when some of the songs were listed as remixed, I was hoping that it wasn't just a typo. A lot of Glen's output from the sixties suffers from the same problems as a lot of other artists from the same era - bad stereo mixes (some instruments mixed to only one channel). Well after listening to this disc it became pretty obvious that these are indeed new stereo mixes that would have been very pleasing to the ears except for one thing. They are all mixed/mastered TOO LOUD! So loud that there's enough distortion to please the most hardened heavy metal fan. Come on people, Glen's music doesn't need to compete with any of "today's artists" (one of the many bogus claims to defend loud cds). I will never understand why the medium (compact disc) that was supposed to bring dynamic range to a whole new level has done just the opposite. No wonder vinyl is making a comeback.

5.0 out of 5 stars IMPRESSIVE GENIUS !!! April 25, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Glen Campbell can still please his loyal fans; and there's no doubt as to why when you listen to this album full of great, timeless music by this icon. Glen is in excellent form throughout this CD; and every tune's a winner! The quality of the sound is excellent and I like the artwork as well.

"Rhinestone Cowboy;" "Wichita Lineman;" "Southern Nights;" "By the Time I Get to Phoenix;" "Galveston" and "Try a Little Kindness" shine bright in Glen's capable hands. Glen handles these songs with panache and he never skips a beat! The music is perfect for the lyrics and these are memorable songs to say the least.

"Gentle on My Mind" is very well done; and it's easy on the ear as well. Glen sings this with all his heart and soul; I love it. "I Wanna Live" has a great country flavor to it and there are yet more ageless gems in songs like "Country Boy (You Got Your Feet in L.A.);" the passionate "True Grit;" "Honey, Come Back;" "It's Only Make Believe" with Glen squarely in the spotlight and "Dreams of the Everyday Housewife."

"Hey Little One" has Glen singing at his usual very best; and the album closes with two other numbers, "Times Like These" and "These Days." It leaves me wanting more!

Glen Campbell's talent is nicely showcased on this album; and it's a must-have for his fans. It also makes a fine starter CD for people who are just discovering the wonderful artistry of the great Glen Campbell.
