Me too, but somewhere I have a Man of LaMancha CD and LP (my LP was beat to a pulp, but it sounds as if the CD reissue engineer didn't turn on the Ampex Master Equalization filter...or something that gross. Some of the Joan Baez first CD reissues had slowing tape as if the masters were suffering from SSS and weren't baked/wiped/whatever. I think the second set of Vanguard Baez CDs have that repaired, but I haven't gone looking. "David's Album" was, by far, the worst in the original series. Cheers, Richard Richard L.
