Buying the albums sampled on “Picnic”.
As mentioned last time, I am blessed to possess a commercially produced CD version of this near perfect album. It was made in Spain in 2006, and released by Retro Disc International S.L. as RDI 33005.
As far as it could be, it is a straight clone of the Canadian version of the LP. The front of the CD itself is decorated with the front cover picture. However, it has many more tracks than the Canadian LP, which only has 10, 5 on each side.
The track listing is in exactly the same comparable place as for the LP in the CD insert, the 4 pages of which, as I say, very closely resemble the gatefold sleeve of the LP. In particular, the track listing is in the same lower case format, and arranged in two columns as if there were still “two sides”:
going to germany
round & round
don’t you ease me in
There are thus a mighty 15 tracks on the CD. Being a straight clone of the LP there are no liner notes at all, so I have no way of knowing which, if any, are “bonus tracks”.
