    Edited one year ago
    Re-releasing compact cassettes as phonographic records does not make sense. The sound of these recordings was never very good, and the producers of this box set obviously ripped thirty-year-old cassettes, at least in some cases. One can hear it. Putting them on records pretends a sonic quality that simply isn't there. This should have been reissued on CD.

    Nice music!
