EDLIS: Classic mono studio recordings in acceptable quality given the dates of recording. The sound here is at times marginally brighter and clearer than the sound on the other Witmark CDs.

DEEP: I concur that The Witmark Years is the best of the three packages. The sound is a bit brighter on this one, not to mention a better package. The front cover of the CD belongs in the bootleg cover Hall of Fame. Essential stuff, this is.

ISIS: The Witmark Years while generally slightly inferior on recording quality at least gets the track listing right. For the most part, though, it fell below par, and on some tracks was blatantly inferior.

rmd: The Witmark Years has the advantage of arranging the material chronologically. Opinions on sound quality tends to vary, even from track to track.
