Has the Cass Elliot/Road Is No Place For A Lady CD twofer released last year been re-released with different artwork? See link below.

Hi jcg...
I have no idea but I certainly do like the artwork-setup in the link you provided...it's a similar idea for the 3-fer-1 deal >> CE/TR/DCMMA

What is odd is that they continue to list "Don't Make Me a Memory" as a selection when it isn't (did Cass even sing a song called that?).

I spoke to Gordon Anderson at Collector's Choice about this product and he indicates that listing is coming from a Foreign Label. As far as "Don't Make Me A Memory"---yes, Cass sang this Al Kasha song in her 1973 shows. The only other artist known to have done the song is Trini Lopez' brother, Jesse Lopez. The track, while contemplated for last year's release is not a part of that package. It was simply earlier reported that it would be a track and they've picked up on that old track listing. A la Crashon, Screamon, All Fall Down.

I was hoping "Don't Make Me a Memory" would be on the new (foreign) release, so I ordered it. Yet I knew I was taking a chance. Now you have confirmed that I was duped! You say the song was "contemplated." Who was contemplating it, and what was the reason for it not being released? Copywrite issues? May it possibly come out on a future release?

I had a feeling this would come up again:

Someone on Amazon has given last year's awesome twofer CD a one-star rating (the lowest) because they thought that the new artwork depicted on Amazon's site was a reissue of the original album with a new cover. It sucks because the reviews are supposed to be for the quality of the album. Anyway, I wish Amazon would resolve the issue.

Hi there jcg...

In regards to your post, I too, after I clicked onto the link you provided, find it kind of strange that this person would rant and rave on and on about the cover pic on CD ...rather than, on the music, as would be the logical thing to do ?! I do like the music on a CD and sometimes the cover pic too, but that is not the main reason to buy a CD...
I guess this person buys according to the cover pics, then for the music it contains... maybe Amazon will deal with the issue or not, I have no idea. I 'm curious though, as to why this guy ended up with 3 copies of the same CD with the same artwork and not what was advertised on the site, the one with new artwork ...maybe they ran out of that particular one and had some older ones left over, or it is an import . I wonder if it is the same CD shown on the Canadian Amazon site or elsewhere....

Hi CassFan

In defense of our Australian friend (the review was from Australia), I too thought it was a reissue with a new cover and would have bought another copy (in addition to the two I purchased when the twofer first came out) if indeed it had the new cover (see earlier in this thread). I'm not sure why domestic Amazon changed the original artwork to reflect a foreign version, but I have to admit I like the cover of the new one as much, if not more, than the original!
Besides, one of our community members is from Australia and whoever wrote the bad review loved Cass enough to buy multiple copies of the twofer. I'm sure no harm was meant.
I still wish Amazon would fix this.

take care,
jcg
