A real stinker!!
on June 23, 1999
Being a Starbuck fan from the 70's I was very excited to learn about the release of "Backtracks". I bought the CD and was very disappointed. As one might expect from a 70's vintage analog master the quality is poor compared with today's digital technologies. However, the disappointment is not with the analog master but the fact that the tracks have been altered from the original. Starbuck's major hits "Moonlight Feels Right" and "Everybody be Dancin" resemble the original in melody only. For some unknown reason this CD contains previously unreleased tracks which probably should have remained unreleased.
I can only hope that someday the original albums are released, unaltered, in CD format. "Backtracks" must certainly be an embarrassment to everyone involved in its production. If your a Starbuck fan, don't waste your money on this "dog"
