Hi all,

Bought an album from my youth on Amazon the other day, new, full price.

It arrived yesterday and was a cd-r burned by Amazon, with the album cover printed out - just the cover, no liner notes, the front cover was surrounded by a border a bit like the budget PS3 games etc, the rear cover and cd was just generic printed, none of the albums design on it.

It's going back as I wasn't told it wasn't going to be a proper pressed cd, I'm not spending full price on a (albeit legal) copy, I may as well download from iTunes for half the price and burn it myself onto a disc I know is good quality.

Anyone else had one of these? Do they use good quality discs? Are they guaranteed to take from a cd source or lower quality MP3?

It's good if you can get stuff on disc that otherwise you can't (or for indies to release cheaply) I guess, maybe I'm stuck in the past!
