Before buying this CD I read the reviews carefully and listened to samples at Amazon. To my ear, all samples sounded like the originals. I was particularly puzzled by the reviewers who said "not original versions" and "LIVE". After receiving the CD I played it all the way through and these are original versions and, except where the recording was made during a concert, all are studio versions. I have to think somehow these reviews got listed under the wrong CD. These REALLY ARE THE REAL THING! Happy listening!
