This is a nice, early, collectible CD of some indispensable early '60s material. A few problems to note are: The recordings were made directly from vinyl LPs. There is slight (but by no means offensive) vinyl noise. The worst problem is with the Billy Faier show. The version here was originally recorded from broadcast on a receiver that was constantly drifting, and producing white noise interference. It gets to be quite annoying. There are clean versions of this great recording available. An oddity with the packaging is that, while the material is from 1962, the photos and artwork are from 1969. No matter, they are quite nice. The best thing of all about this package is that the captivating front cover photo is silk screened  onto the CD itself producing a relatively rare (in 1990) picture CD. Very nice.
