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...

Believe the other reviewers! "Original artists" they may be, but they are NOT the original songs. Why would someone make crap like this I don't know. No one buying "retro" music would want these versions.
