But how much of it is new (i.e. previously unreleased)? For instance, have they really improved the sound of t"Let It Roll"'s "Johnny B. Goode / O Holy Night" track, itself released only this year on Madison? Do I need that twice in one year on two different sets? As it is, as the "Elvis In Norway" states in reviewing that release, It seems like what might have been self-made compilations are now being passed off as "new" imports, just because the song-order is fresh and maybe improved sound. I think thus far Fort Baxter has truly upgraded many of its earlier releases with better sound and booklets, whereas others are coming up with "new" compilations. This is fun with your CD burner, but to pass them up as "new" imports? No Thonx.
