Even before that..I bought new pressings of all the Lenny Bruce Fantasy LPs in

There were some weird things in the early CD days. I remember the CBC
purchasing what appeared to be an authorized CD reissue of the "Zorba the
Greek" soundtrack. It was dubbed from noisy vinyl and all the tracks ran together.
