"Strict Tempo: Scottish Country Dance Music from the 1950’s"

"Superb Sound Quality" is on the front of these CDs, but there is a problem with this claim. While the digital may be fine, and I am glad to have these tracks, the discs are ‘home-burns’, not professional ~ meaning they use lower quality CD media and burning, what most of us have built into our computers ~ and are consequently less robust than what is generally produced commercially…

For those that might remember tape, these might be considered the ‘ferric oxide’ to the much better quality ‘chrome oxide’… 😏
