I am a great fan of the Memory Releases. They put a lot of effort into the artwork, notes and most importantly the sound. All sources are digitally remastered, reapired if necessary and speed corrected. It is a shame that Czech law now prevents them issuing studio material, but what they can release they do to the very best quality achievable. I for one can't wait to hear Pieces Of My Life from an improved source!!

I´m glad to have all of their Cds included the Promo Cds. I think they are fantastic. Made from fans to fans. I talked to them and they said that there will be more to follow. I can´t wait till then !!! TCB.

well that maybe so, but they use best possible source for the 'Audience Recordings'!

These Czech CDs have superb cover artwork - but the audience recordings are a pain to my ears. Their best releases were the earlier Studio Recordings and the Movie Compilations.
