Comments: Quality is remarkably difficult to judge. What we have here is a very good presentation of material that, honestly, probably shouldn't have been put out. I mean, it's exceptionally uninteresting. Take the recent remastered Piper CD and compare it to this release and you'll just shake your head wondering what possessed somebody to bother releasing this thing. Ok, Ok... Some people have suggested that the mono LPs were mixed differently from the stereo LPs. That's true enough. They are a mono mix whereas the stereo LPs are a stereo mix. End of story. Another thing that bothers me is that this CD is not quite the correct speed. If you compare the length of this CD to the length of the combined remastered Piper & Saucerful CDs, you'll find that this CD is 3:28 shorter! That's approximately 4.5% too fast. Just enough to annoy me!

There just isn't enough to justify the expenditure. Unless you are a raving completist, you'll wish you'd spent your hard earned on something else. - SCOTT
