Legends of Rock: Acoustic Superstars isn't an entirely accurate title, since Roger Miller and Vern Gosdin made their names in the country music arena. Some could also argue that Carl Perkins is the only bona fide legend here, although Toy Caldwell, Steve Forbert, David Crosby, Greg Lake, John Sebastian, and America all enjoyed substantial audiences at one time or another (sometimes with other bands). In any case, some of these songs have been re-recorded and aren't present in their best-known incarnations. There are some good performances, but the packaging and presentation are slipshod enough to warrant second thoughts about making a purchase.
