CD-R Warning

Some time ago we mentioned a few new import (re)releases from the Union and Whitehaven labels. We learned that some of these titles are CD-Rs and not real CDs. The titles are: "In A Class Of His Own", "Autumn In Nevada", "Caught In A Trap", "In The Heat Of The Desert", "Saturday Night Special", "Sweet Sweet Spirit", "Elvis The First Of The Last".

LOU, The first thing. CD-R shouldn't even cost $20, $30, If so, they'd better guarantee GREAT quality in a VERY RARE Show/Studio. As far a drop outs go if you take care of any CD it'll never drop out (Cassettes do & will). I've been an AVID collector with contacts from all over the world (Friends now), and my experience shows me what I need to know. just remember though when dealing with Unknow (bootleg) labels "Buyer Beware". When I say that, I mean is the sound P=poor, F=fair, G=good, E=excellent? I've only found very few NOT worth owning. This is the only man known to the recording industry to have such a Mamoth amount of material, with more surfacing every day.

I've been reluctant to buy CD-R's (or Dvd-R's for that matter). I've heard that the CD-R format is prone to developing drop-outs. I'd hate to pay $20- 30.00 for a disc and then have it deteriorate, with no way of exchanging it for a playable one. Anyone out ther knowledgeable on this subject?

I really don't mind if they are CD-Rs. The most important thing is that it must have reasonably good sound quality as those bad audience recordings really hurt my ears and piss me off. I only collect SOUNDBOARD.

Although they may be CD-R, this doesn't mean it's bad quality. Alot of CD-Rs are the only way to get your hands on alot of this material (I know, I've gathered over 2000 high quality albums so far), the packaging is the only thing that suffers most of the time. "Honesty is the best policy" as if you sell CD-rs, just tell us, we don't care about aything but the music, and good sound quality. Thanks ELVIS NEW for the tip.....keep your eyes out for rip offs, some of these concerts say ELVIS on the label, while the sound leaves you wondering if the recorder was left in the hotel room under a bunch of bath towels (MUFFLED). Happy Hunting.
