I have experience with VOLUNTEERS.
The FIRST one was a second-hand copy of the original LP, a bit scratchy yet mostly intact. Lyric-sheet-libretto/poster included, courtesy of "fred"...
BEST VERSION of all, in my opinion.
Since the late 1980's I have purchased several different VOLUNTEERS CD's... The most recent one came with SURREALISTIC PILLOW (?) liner notes by Jeff Tamarkin...
Depending on WHICH version (which nation purchased in, which version, which year etc.), the VOLUNTEERS compact disc MAY or MAY NOT include a 2-page reproduction of the original LP insert that was included with the first pressings of VOLUNTEERS.
The CD may or may not include the famous peanut-butter & jelly sandwich, famously photographed by Herb Green and eaten by Gut...
However, the lyrics sheet / poster is irrelevant anyway, because on the CD re-issue it is SO SMALL as to be TOTALLY unreadable.
Like... What was the point if you cannot read the "lyrics" on the "lyric sheet"???
I think that RCA / BMG needs to get their shit together... And release these musical masterpieces in the properly re-mastered, currently-annotated, and historical-period-original packaging.
P.S.: WHY does not the recent SUNFIGHTER CD re-issue contain a reproduction of the original LP libretto/artwork booklet?
Yeah... Sounds like RCA / BMG needs to get their shit together.
And they wonder why people "illegally" download for free!?!?!?!
...When many people (read:loyal fans) would happily $$$*purchase*$$$ if only they could get the REAL artwork with the music!!!
UP AGAINST THE WALL, MOTHERFUCKERS!!!
