Ring the Re Recordings Alarm!

Ring the Re Recordings alarm and ring it loud and clear across the land.

Some would say re recordings are better than nothing but I would argue they are worse than nothing. They are the scourge of iTunes. If re recordings must infect the iTunes store like a virus, they should at least be flagged up in LARGE BOLD RED LETTERS. I've studied the artwork for this so called LP and the iTunes page and there is no clue. Not even the small print you can find on cd's if you look hard enough.

True, I only downloaded 'Won't Somebody Dance' but that is definately a re recording - without Ed Stewart doing the man's voice at the end. The voice on this version sounds more like Dale Winton.

BEWARE! And iTunes people; if you're reading this, sort out the re recording thing. It drives grown men to tired sobs.

Almost There

There are several 'hits' compilations of Lynsey's songs that oddly do not feature the original single versions of her biggest successes 'Sugar Me' & 'Wont Somebody Dance With Me'. While this collection still has what sounds like a rough out take of 'Won't Somebody...' at last we also have the original hit single version of 'Sugar Me'. Most of the other tracks are as I recall them from the album at the time 'Surprise'. 'Ivory Tower' is a particular standout (why never a single?) and 'Water' was sampled just last year by groovsters Smooth & Tunnel so there's a lot to enjoy here. A definitive collection covering all of Lynsey's recording career has yet to emerge on CD - it would seem from the comments on sites like these that demand is definitely there for the very best of this often over looked Brit girl singer songwriter of the early 70's.

I don't think these are re-recordings.

Worth buying for Ivory Tower alone. I don't think these are re-records, Blind Leading the Blind sounds like an old recording - they don't seem to have remastered it, and the end is missing off the end of the track!. Other tracks like Ivory Tower sound clear as a bell, and I'm convinced its the same as the vinyl transfer mp3
