The song quality on many of these is simply unacceptable. One could do a better job if they had a turntable and original 45 and performed a digital transfer which I've done 100's of times off original vinyl. More specifically the tracks such as Words On Paper, Come With Me and also Delilah are quite muddy (reasons for my acquisition). These tracks sound like they came off an old cassette or perhaps so much noise reduction was used it stripped away the natural beauty of the recording. This isn't the case on every song as the quality varies. The artwork/paper is shabby. In all this is a mediocre CD based on sound and artwork. My comparison is compared to the Greatest Hits CD released in 1994 on MCA which features some overlap . The clarity between the two is night and day. Unless your desperate or willing to chance, go for it.

**What you can't see online is the disclaimer at the bottom of the CD which says: "Due To The Rarity Of These Recordings, it was necessary to remaster from both analogue tapes and vinyl sources. Some minor tape his and other anomalies may be heard." One can only wonder if they have legal authority to release such a CD and secondly, the master exist somewhere. Was Teensville too unequipped and eager to release this disc without further and proper discovery? We're not talking about some small label no name recordings here. We are talking about DOT that released 1000's of 45's in the 60s and also Philips. To me, this is a bad excuse.
