MielR, it's apparently a pretty common problem. I've looked for years for a legit release of Hank Williams' The Lonesome Sound of Hank Williams on CD or mp3. You're hard pressed to find these versions since they were overdubbed after Hank's death and my LP isn't the best pressing.
Anyhow, I found it available for mp3 download on Amazon for $6.99. A heckuva price! I downloaded it only to find it's was dubbed from a bad LP source and the album was played too slow. After a bit of research, I found the label (Hallmark) is a British label who apparently can license things cheaper (Bear Family in Germany takes advantage of the lower European licensing costs as well but they put out an A+ product) and they use questionable sources.
Amazon refunded my purchase price without a problem but the mp3 album was never pulled and is still available. Since that time I've noticed the same thing happening with Chet Atkins, Hank Thompson and Eddy Arnold. There's simply no telling how much shady product there is out there being released by budget labels.
