  2. Yep. Common knowledge that "Da Doo Ron Ron" is missing.

    I enjoyed Da Doo Ron Ron’s Live version best!

    I just listened to Da Doo Ron Ron from Now and Then to be certain. It would not take much to edit the song to end right before the vocals enter at the end using editing software without re-recording anything. I may do this so I can include it with the others. Only issue remaining is matching the remastering used in the Reader’s Digest version. I prefer the vocal mixing in Now and Then, so I usually listen to that version, but like all the remixes, a good alternative is a good companion and not a replacement. I wish we could have all been present while they were recording, for as much as we have before us today in technology and quality, I am sure quality is still lost in the reproduction. But, we have better to listen from and with more alternatives than most have choices when listening to their favorite group! The Beatles and Beach Boys have more, but nothing beats the SACD we have with the Singles! They sure were magical together!

    Question. Would you buy this new set or one on eBay that is listed as mint?? Price similar.

    eBay is the set Sweet Memory.
     
  7. I'm with ya on that my friend but it would be nice to keep my bragging rights to all my friends that I have every release ever offered. It would be fun for even the memory from the first time I tore off the plastic off each and every record when it first came out. they are new records with I'm sure a great sound. I really love the new 6 CD release and having not a/b compared yet, I think it may have a new remastered quality that Sweet Memory didn't have. I'll have to do that comparison so I can post about that. Hope you enjoy yours like I have mine!!

    I am lost. I have RD. do SWEET MEMORY or BEST SONGS have the oldies sequenced as two songs, as on RD? do either of them have DA DOO RON RON? DA DOO RON RON is my favorite selection from the medley.

    Pretty artwork once again on this (simpler this time)!
    There was a link to the Another Song remix somewhere and I can't find it.
    Would someone mind putting it in here, please? :)
    It was on the outro that the re-recorded bass really shone. That was only released on this collection, yes?
