Less than a year after Ace subsidiary BGP paired Songs
and Hey Love
onto one disc, Raven released a two-fer that made Aladdin
and Dinner Music
available on one disc. Not only do the original albums deserve to be released separately, but both the Raven and BGP two-fers ruin the strange sleeve artwork that adorned the original LPs. Aladdin
is a bit sore on the eyes, placing shrunken photos of the original covers in front of a background of intersecting ovals. As of 2003, this was the only way to obtain either album on CD. Neither album matches Rotary Connection
, or Hey Love
, but each has a couple of great songs.
