I initially made these comments under the "Origins" thread but decided to edit that reply and start this thread. BAYV's Gaia Symphony is another recent CD release that used previously recorded material (about half the CD in fact). In my opinion, it's different when openly buying a compilation CD or, as in the case of Origins, two or three tracks, identified as such. However, I was disappointed in that aspect of Gaia, if for no other reason than I had already paid for half the content on two previous CD's. That made Gaia pretty expensive to me (and many others who also had purchased the two earlier CD's) but perhaps not so bad for the rest. Also on the topic of value, what do tMPer's think of a recent solo CD release from Alan Morrison which has less than 45 mins. of music at full price? I'm talking strictly on the amount of content here, not how good the performance might be. I personally think this is a pretty pricey item, one that I will probably not get for that reason alone.
