Greatest Hits Volume 1
Victrola's Greatest Hits, Volume 1 is out now.
Its got the same cover as an album released in Great Britain and parts of Europe in the early eighties called The Sound Of Your Cry. Have they just stolen the cover, it confuses me when different albums have the same covers. Surely the most photographed star ever deserves different covers for album releases, after all there are no shortage of cool pics!!
The flyer says ' 25th anniversary edition' - 25th aniversary of what does this mean.?? I do have the australian disc and I always liked it and don't really need this although it's nicely done......
The reason that the cover looks like the original release is simple...the producers wanted to stay close to the original artwork as possible, like sony/ftd does with their classic album releases, nothing wrong with that. And in a beautiful digipack with some great pics and linernotes. And the tracks are remastered in 24bit, using the original mastertape, that was send out to 1 of the rca offices.
Marco, RCA did release this album in fact I have it. If memory serves me correctly RCA relesed a vol 2 Greatest HIts and both covers looked just like this one. This label here has no imagination and has the same tracks. Yep I founed it> RCA released it in 1981.
I ever loved this one so I'll buy it. I think that this CD should be released by RCA . The tracks are great.
To be honest with you they have done everything right with the product apart from the content?....it's a lovely digi-pack and has been produced to the highest standard and i have to give them praise for that!...just wish they had put something a little different on the cd as this has been released officially and on other imports.........i too love the good old days and remember the time i brought 'Behind Closed Doors' 4 LP box set...back then that was the bees knees of bootlegs......ol how times have changed.
It's a sad state of affairs when todays new bootlegs are ripping off previously released RCA product. Thank goodness I remember the good old days of Laurel Records, Golden Archives, Audifon etc. - labels that actually gave us 'new' stuff that we'd never heard before. I guess the barrel has run dry now.
