GREAT SONGS, MEDIOCRE SOUND,
This review is from: Everybody Plays the Fool: Best of Main Ingredient (Audio CD)
I bought this CD specifically because I was disappointed with the
sound of the Collectibles Records "Main Ingredient Golden Classics"
collection. I figured that since this was a Sony/BMG Legacy
2005 release that the remastering would be great. Wrong. It's not
awful, but it's not very good either. Some of the tracks have
a muddy "cassette-like" sound to them. Maybe the original masters
sound that way? In any case, I can't fault Cuba and the guys. This
stuff is prime 70's soul, and even with my complaints I think this
is the best collection of their music out there. "Rolling Down A
Mountainside" is CLASSIC. Sing, guys.....SANG!
