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

Lift your eyes again and look around you, and you will see that you are walking in the sky, which extends to the ground. We are all part of the sky, more so than of the ground. Remember, we love you." --John Lennon and Yoko Ono

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.
