I was looking for a reasonably-priced, single-disc "best of" collection from the Troggs with the original versions of the songs and including "Feels Like a Woman" and "Black Bottom". I did some research and discovered that there are many Troggs collections available and that AT LEAST one uses re-recorded or remixed versions of the songs. I wanted to avoid those. A reviewer of one collection was very helpful in warning that that particular CD did not contain the original versions. That was very useful information and I am grateful to the reviewer. My search continued. I ran across this one on the AIM label. Alas, there were no reviews. I did more research. I found samples to play at the CD Universe site, who also carry this AIM version. I listened to the samples. They were indeed the original songs. Finally, my search was over! I ordered the CD from a seller here on Amazon at a good price. And I was happy.... until today! These are NOT THE ORIGINAL SONGS!!!!!!!!
I don't know where CD Universe got their samples, but they aren't from the AIM label CD which is featured on their site. Here is the link if you wanna check it for yourself (although Amazon will probably censor it).
(Yep, just as I thought.)
UPDATE: Since the writing of my original review I have discovered that Amazon has added an MP3 choice for this album. However, to add to the confusion, the MP3 page shows a different image of the album and the track listing is also different. If you listen to them you will find that the MP3 samples are not the original songs either.
Oh well, back to my search. What a disappointment. But at least YOU can avoid the same mistake.
