No regrets, he loves the CD. Unigue and special songs by great artists. With all the reproductions of older songs and albums available these days, it's really a surprise that this album hasn't been re-released.
Nice to have an original. And in perfect condition, I might add. The power of these live performances cannot be understood unless you hear them. A friend in college owned the album and we listened to it often. It's a rush to hear it again after so many years. There are times Message In A Bottle - Various - The Secret Policemans Concert your memory is better than the actual thing.
Not this time! I must admit I was a bit concerned about the quality of a used vinyl purchased sight unseen but upon receiving it and playing it I was truly impressed. The album was almost like new, it was really well taken care of. It came packed very securely and was prompt in its arrival.
Very pleased Message In A Bottle - Various - The Secret Policemans Concert this vender. A Historic Concert with super stars!!! Great Service!
