I haven’t finished listening to the CD yet, however from what I’ve heard so far, the CD’s really sound their best when they are going through a high quality stereo system with wood speakers, and not the porcelain speakers found in “boom boxes” or car stereos. Also headphones don’t do it justice.I disagree. Take a listen to “True Love Ways”. It’s far superior to anything on the Carpenters album and Buddy comes across loud and clear. This is the kind of treatment and mixing I thought we’d get and that I feel the tracks deserved.
