The songs are re-recordings in a studio apparently by some or all members of the original bands. They are similar to the original songs, but they defintely are *not* the original recordings. Very disappointing.

Maybe the artists are original; the versions definitely not. If you want the versions that you listen on the radio this is not an option.

I wish I had read the 2 reviews previously. None of the songs sound like
the hit versions and very few (none?) seem to have the original singers. I feel like I was ripped off.

Quoted from the front of the tin container,
"New stereo recordings by the original artists".
I personally prefer all original recordings.
I love the music and voices that drew me to the song in the first place.

Having said that, it also needs said that some people may enjoy this collection also.
My daughter has this set, and loves it.
For her it's not a big deal, she's not a purest wanting only originals.
I've listened to the entire 3 disc set and think it has some merit.
After all, some of these artists are still preforming,
and this is about what they'd sound like in concert today.

Comparing this set to the originals, no they don't sound quite the same.
Occasionally they aren't quite as energetic,
and some word expressions are a tiny bit different.
But over-all this set is decent for re-recorded music.

If you prefer original recordings you may want to notice
this set is by Madacy special productions, and stay away from that label.

This claims the songs are by the original artists. BIG FAT LIE, The songs are NOT the original artists! Buyers be warned these are not the songs you listened to on the radio. I feel deceived by this false information & I wish I'd known this fact before I purchased this useless set. I'm very irritated that I wasted my hard earned money on this piece of crap and if I could have rated it at a zero I would have...

first of all you can find this at: ( starts with the letter H & rhymes with lastings..... ) for $5.99 so dont pay more for it than that & you wont be quite as disappointed once you listen to it..if you happen to see this in a record shop you will notice that it states on the outside of the box that these are stereo re-recordings from the original artists which in itself is nothing short of a magic trick since all the members of badfinger have been dead going on nearly 30 years now so there is no telling who is doing the several badfinger tracks which by the way are quite awful. so maybe about 2 & one half stars because about 15 of the 30 tracks are actually decent

This set of discs is a total SCAM!!! Musicians, living and DEAD, should sue the craphounds that put this out. I did not read the reviews either and this was a total rip-off of my money and the original artist's names. Amazon should remove this total crap set from it's catalog. Not to mention that the discs weren't secure because the spindles were broken. I would share more harsh words but, it would be audited. ONE STAR BECAUSE THERE ARE ANY LOWER THAN THAT.
