Through the efforts of readers and contributors, many of whom choose to be anonymous, the site is improved for the benefit of all.

Thanks to Michael Dunnington for a copy of the "actual" graphics as displayed.
 
 WARNING:   All tracks are reported to be in real stereo excepting as marked. Disappointingly, sources are reported to be less than optimum with at least two monaural tracks which should have been released in true stereo. It is important to note that 24 Bit Mastering will not make tape copies sound like originals. Digital manipulation and frequency blending does not make a poor quality source sound better nor is such practice a substitute for the competent mixing and mastering of original first generation session tapes. Japanese sources are generally reasonable quality original release masters but not first generation tapes. This compilation is eclectic, the sequencing peculiar, both technically and artistically, but there are a number of songs released here not commonly available on compact disc. Unfortunately, all indicators suggest that this compilation does not meet the standard one should expect even from Japan. Some may find the inclusion of traditional hymns, described as "Perry Como Sings Love Songs", to be of questionable taste.
 
 NOTE:   Even the cover art used for this compilation is low-grade. The actual cover art is reproduced below whereas the cover above is simulated.  High international prices should not be confused with quality. Please bookmark this page for any change in this evaluation posted as applicable.
