Really bad drum samples

For some reason, ALL OF THE DRUM TRACKS HAVE BEEN REPLACED by really dated sounding samples with gated reverbs. It's especially jarring with their earlier material. It was an awful decision by someone, but luckily I have their early albums on vinyl. Don't buy these versions, they sound awful.

Great band, terrible cd's

For some reason whoever mixed ZZ Tops early albums remixed them with so much reverb they ruined some great music. When I originally bought the six pack set I was very happy to get all their early cd's for a great price all at once. One listen and I took it back the next day and got my money back. This collection is a huge waste of money. If you're an old fan you're going to be very disappointed in these not sounding anything like the original albums. even the single cd's were screwed up with the same sound remix. I was into recording my original LP's to digital format and my cd's sound like the album. Anyone that's heard my cd's of ZZ's early stuff begged me to give them a copy. I do it for a few blank cd's but here 10 years later and I'm still making copies for friend when they ask me about ZZ Top... I used to be a record and CD dealer so I'm the man people come to when they're looking for something rare or not available on cd... Anywho....
I thought by now it would have been remastered and the sound restored to what it originally sounded like. Do not buy this 6 pack set at any price!!
If Warner Bros were giving them away FREE I wouldn't take a copy of it!!!

Awesome concept, poor execution

I love the idea of their first 6 albums condensed onto 3 CDs. However, the remixing has the drums too far forward in the mix, and the reverb is just plain annoying. I'd rather shell out for the individual CDs, even at twice the cost.
