    Steve's EQ on the AF CD is much better. I'm sure a little EQ would tame the shrillness on this CD.

    This release is truly one of the best I have ever purchased. Everyone involved in this project put so much love and care into it, from the packaging, artwork, booklet and mastering. The booklet was very informative and detailed, which I enjoyed reading a lot. Plus, seeing the unused pictures from the Eli and the Thirteenth Confession cover shoot was a nice surprise! Thank you, again, for this great release.

    I also want to speak up and say "THANK YOU!" to all involved in making this release happen. Huge Nyro fan here. Previous to this release, I had a CD copy of "The First Songs", and 3 vinyl copies of "The First Songs". It's been a while since I've listened to this album but its been a favorite summer-time record for years. It just really cool to hear this album in a new way. I'm having a blast with this.

    I had never heard the album in this original running order.

    Original order
    Goodbye Joe 2:36
    Billy's Blues 3:16
    And When I Die 2:37
    Stoney End 2:41
    Lazy Susan 3:50
    Hands Off The Man (Flim Flam Man) 2:25

    Wedding Bell Blues 2:46
    Buy And Sell 3:34
    He's A Runner 3:37
    Blowin' Away 2:20
    I Never Meant To Hurt You 2:49
    California Shoe-Shine Boys 2:43

    "The First Songs" order
    Wedding Bell Blues 2:40
    Billy's Blues 3:16
    California Shoe-Shine Boys 2:43
    Blowin' Away 2:20
    Lazy Susan 3:50
    Goodbye Joe 2:36

    Flim Flam Man 2:25
    Stoney End 2:41
    I Never Meant To Hurt You 2:49
    He's A Runner 3:37
    Buy And Sell 3:34
    And When I Die 2:37

    I'm still listening, and my opinion might change. But, I dont know, I think the "First Songs" running order is superior here. And I can see why they changed the order when they did. "And When I Die" seems so obvious as a side closer. It seems a little weird to hear it as track 3 now. Likewise, starting the album with "Goodbye Joe" also seems strange to me. Thoughts?

    Went to get my 2 CD set from Real Gone Music tonight (I had it in my cart for a couple of days...don't know why) and now it's sold out? Was this to be a limited release? Bummed...

    Thanks! Last night there were not any. Just snagged the (1) that they had.

    Question: is the AF of Eli that significant an improvement over a) the mono fold in the new set and b) the old stereo cd?

    I'm late to the Nyro party, but am being drawn in..... heavily....

    yes to both questions. And it's pricey now, but I guarantee it will only get more expensive as years go by

    Mono/stereo sets, interesting. Maybe that'll get the monos onto Spotify so I can listen in my car.

    Have loved Laura forever. Saw her live in 1971, solo, on the grand piano. Just before her first "retirement". So brilliant. I have all her original NM vinyl (stereo)....this mono release will be a wonderful addition!
