Rhino’s “ORIGINAL ALBUM SERIES”
Featuring albums from the vast WARNER ELEKTRA ATLANTIC (WEA) Catalogue Covering All Genres Of Music and all Decades (1950s to 2000s)

5CD MINI BOX SETS, REPRO SINGLE SLEEVE US LP ARTWORK

REMASTERS - It is not to be presumed that these are "REMASTERS" because sale sites state it so - they're not. I've acquired the LITTLE FEAT set and the 5CDs are the crappy Eighties issues simply repacked - which is crushingly disappointing.

Some artists like Aretha Franklin, Otis Redding, The Cars, The Pretenders and Ray Charles have already been remastered in the last few years, so their sets will include those, but when you get to Rickie Lee Jones, Chaka Khan, Chris Rea, Little Feat and George Benson (to name just a few), it looks like you're getting more of the same...

So even if TOM WAITS, LEON REDBONE, BONNIE RAITT, MICHAEL McDONALD, BIG JOE TURNER, MONTROSE and PRINCE turn up in the next lot, if they're not remastered, who cares...and worse, why should anyone buy them?
