So, I decided to get a used copy of this CD set that I had been undecided about before.

It's not bad.  Does anyone have opinions or thoughts on it?

There are 23 songs and about 9 of them really ruin it for me.

These are the ones I like:

# 9 Dream, REM

Cold Turkey , Lenny Kravitz

I'm Losing You , Corinne Bailey Rae

Gimme Some Truth , Jakob Dylan/Dhani Harrison

Oh My Love, Jackson Browne

Jealous Guy , Youssou N'Dour

Working Class Hero , Green Day

Beautiful Boy, Ben Harper

Isolation , Snow Patrol

Grow Old With Me , The Postal Service

Gimme Some Truth , Jaguares

(Just Like) Starting Over, Flaming Lips

God , Jack's Mannequin/Mick Fleetwood

Real Love , Regina Spektor

Wow, that's a lot of songs.  Is that still available on iTunes?  I see a 34-song version.

Looking at the US iTunes, there appear to be two versions of The Complete Recordings:

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/instant-karma-2-complete-recordings/id302516167

or

https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/instant-karma-2-amnesty-international/id302313078

Neither appears to be the original 66-track. The first is 61 audio, the 2nd is (if I understand it correctly, never bought from iTunes!), 61 audio and 3 video.

I'd not heard this album until reading this thread, so dug it out of the library at work. It's very variable in quality, though I did like The Cure's version of Love. I can't bring myself to listen to Black Eyed Peas' attempt at Power To The People .

Ugh, I know, I can't stand the rap part...and how he keeps repeating "Power, give 'em POW-er."

I love The Cure--I'll have to hear that version.

Hahaha! I've still not listened to it. I can imagine how awful it might sound, and I'm sure the reality would be no better.
