5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 StarsAs I stated back in Dec. 24th, 2013, when I received my copy, this FTD version is a keeper. I never really cared for this release when it was on vinyl but this release sounds so great. "It's Easy For You" and "She Thinks I Still Care" are my favorites, but this entire FTD version is so superior in sound compared to all prior releases of this album. The outtakes are better than the released versions.

5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 Stars5 StarsI just got my FTD copy this afternoon along with the new 3rd Memphis edition on American Studios sessions (still listening-review to follow). In any event, this CD is a rather delightful surprise; especially the second CD. The sound is exceptional and to be honest from what I listened to and granted it is my first listen, there are versions which are miles ahead of the originals released. "Way Down" and "Moody Blue", while enjoyable, were never really my favorites but after listening to the outtakes I've changed my mind completely. This entire CD is a complete sonic blast, besides being his last commercially issued album. One of my favorites, "She Thinks I Still Care" is exceptional with all the different rhythmic versions, but once again, "Way Down" is the ultimate start off on the second CD; one listen and you're hooked. This CD deserves to be purchased and I'm very, very much surprised to put it bluntly.
