Sound quality not what it should be

"I own all 3 of these Shirley Temple sets that have been released so far. The sound quality seems to be going downhill...
All 3 of the DVDs in Volume One were okay. I was very pleased with that set. In Volume Two, I noticed that the sound quality in Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm was not that great (quiet voices and comparatively loud music). In this last volume, the sound was questionable in The Littlest Rebel... but it was atrocious in Dimples. It sounded as if all the actors were talking into pillows. I have watched these films on VHS and the sound is fine... perhaps something went wrong when they were put onto DVD.
I will say, however, that I absolutely love The Littlest Rebel and The Little Colonel. They're probably my favourite Shirley Temple movies, so to find them both in Volume Three was great. I was worried about The Little Colonel, though. The last scene was originally shot in Technicolor; however, in Fox's last VHS release of the movie (colourized), they cut the scene! I was so glad to see that the lovely "pink party" scene was included in this version... it's wonderful to see such an early example of colour in the movies.
As with the other two sets, the colourization of the black and white films is good (much better than previous attempts). However, the sound quality really annoyed me. Had I known it would be so bad, I would have just skipped Dimples and purchased the other two DVDs separately."

"The best! Includes the extraordinary genius of Bill "Bogangles" Robinson in "Colonel & Rebel." These are the only two movies where he appeared with Temple. It doesn't get any better. Be still my heart!"
