Reissued decades later with alternate mixes and track content, this is the original Quad version(which was apparently folded to stereo for the stereo LP), and another cornestore of the Quad collector's library. Obviously, a pity there is no vinyl edition, but there was a Quad reel, which made up for that somewhat.

Beyond the Quad mixes, the key differences here, relative to the original versions, was the extended take of "Let's Stay Together," which matches the 45/Lp version but ran much longer; and the long version of "Let's Get Married."

Tracks:

1. Tired Of Being Alone
2. Call Me(Come Back Home)
3. I'm Still In Love With You
4. Here I Am(Come And Take Me)
5. How Can You Mend A Broken Heart

6. Let's Stay Together
7. I Can't Get Next To You
8. You Ought To Be With Me
9. Look What You Done For Me
10. Let's Get Married

Y'know, lookin' at that Q8 scan, methinks that tape shell needs a touch o' cleanin'....:D

The greatest hits reel to reel tape is awesome...

One of the best (if not the best) quad reel to reel tapes that i've ever heard.

While I can enjoy the DVD-A for what it is, must confess it was something of a disappointment, because the precedent was set with this very fine Quad mix, which really isolates the instruments well and leaves Al free to roam around.

Of course, beyond the mix differences, the DVD-A was based on The Right Stuff CD reissue, which altered not only the track listing(and expanded upon it)but used stereo masters, meaning "Let's Stay Together" is the 45/Lp short version, not the full-length, from-the-session-tape as found here and on the stereo(which must have been folded from the Quad)Lp from 1975.

This is really a keeper for me....Al was in his prime, and this is the best of that time. Still a knockout after all these years!
