Sound quality is allright. But Sundazed's inclusion of bonus material in form of an added lp and making it a sort of a compilation is the problem that distracts from keeping it in a collection.
First of all, the bonus tracks (with exception of "Dr. of philosophy" which is marvelous - rightly so, it was recorded together with original album tracks) are mediocre and even plain stupid - boring cover of "I put a spell on you" and utterly moronic "Bury me in a marijuana field" really have to go! Their early pre psych singles tracks are pretty uninspired and rather lame - without any significance to someone who loves "Trip thru hell". Different versions of regular album tracks are okay, but they don't bring any further substance to the whole. Three before unissued demos: "I shot the king", "Fortune teller's lie" and " Sadie Lavone" are the highlights - even so they are major dissapointment when compared to the legendary "Trip thru hell" album.
Back sleeve design is horrible, looks fake, while inside gatefold pictures and overlong interview with band's leader Ken Erwin gives an impression that C. A. Quintet were nothing more but the bunch of youth who were accidentaly involved in the making of such an psych wonder as "Trip thru hell" really is. All magical, mystical aura "Trip thru hell" once possesed is taken away by releasing it in this form. Sundazed tried to repair the damage by releasing it again in it's original form, but they failed one more time (noisy transparent "gold vinyl" !!?? No, thanks).
Still waiting for an nice, decent reissue, identical to original and with "Dr. of philosophy" 45 also in it's original form as a bonus.

How's the sound quality on these c.a Quintet represses by Sundazed? Worth buying?
