I lost my original CD of "Listen Without Prejudice vol. 1" which I bought while a teenager, though I purchased the cassette tape when I was 13 years old, which says a lot because I'm a miser! I was miserable when I realized I had lost the CD (out of the 500 CDs I have, this is the only one that I lost track of somehow), especially because I realized it was gone right after George's announced death.
I have been waiting for this CD since March, which was when it was supposed to have come out. Don't know what the drama is there, but I'm just happy to have it now.
I never had legitimate, digital version of his unplugged, MTV performances, so this is a special treat me to have them now.
What I like about this product (getting technical now, not about the music, which I'm an obvious fan of):
1. The remastering of all the songs are top notch. Sound great!
2. I like the fact that the cover is not plastic but a hard cardboard. Over the years, I have grown in my appreciation for cardboard CD coverings over plastic. They last longer, and I like the fact there is no special insert in those pesky plastic covers.
3. The other side of this cover is George a bit younger, and he looks divine.
4. There was a liner stuck in the cover sleeve that serves as a mini-biography of the "Listen Without Prejudice vol. 1" album. It goes into what George did and thought as he put this album together. As a true GM fan and history teacher, this is a delicious treat.
Either you are looking to replace your "Listen Without Prejudice vol. 1" album, or to add the MTV unplugged songs into your music library, this would be a great addition for any GM fan.
