A Nice Pair of Monos ||Quality:||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!
