5.0 out of 5 stars Whats On The CD Set?- Off to The Races? 9 May 2012
By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Ther is no listings on Amazon UK of which albums are on this set so I thought the actual albums names would be useful.

They are
'Live at the Half Note Vol 1', 'Motorcity Scene', 'Off the the Races', 'Royal Flush', 'Fuego', 'Byrd in Flight', 'Free Form', and 'Live at the Half Note Vol 2'.

The sound is described as 'nice' by an American reviewer JD.
He thinks that all songs are taken from other already released cds rather than the LPs( needle drops) A bonus is according to JD is that, unlike some similar releases. all songs are in the proper order.

I have ben unable to provide a full track listing but will continue to 'track' one down. (pardon the pun)

If, in the meantime you are able to provide one just add a note in the comments box,

Cheers.

4.0 out of 5 stars Public Domain but they sound nice 2 Mar 2012
By JD - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Just listened to all 4 cds through headphones. All songs are taken from other already released cds (not needle drops) and sound really nice. All songs are in the proper order unlike the LOU DONALDSON Eight Classic ALbums cd which has discs 2 & 4 completely out of order. See review for LOU DONALDSON Eight Classic Albums for corrected order. As far as this cd...get it..great sound but no liner notes. Whatya expect for cheap a rubber biscuit???

4.0 out of 5 stars As it says -- 8 classics by Byrd 24 Jan 2013
By Bruce Nissen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a basic product -- 8 classic Donald Byrd albums, jammed into 4 CDs. Lots of music on each CD; no liner notes, no extra cuts. Just plain vanilla. But the sound quality is OK, and it's a great bargain. If you like the early Donald Byrd music, this is quite a buy.

4.0 out of 5 stars A solid investment 9 Feb 2014
By Jeffrey Tedford - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Real Gone Jazz's collection of early Donald Byrd performs a real service for the jazz collector-veteran and novice alike. A mix of "live" and studio dates recorded between 1959-1961, this captures Byrd at an early peak in his career. My favorite albums are "Live At The Half Note, Volume Two" and "Off To the Races", both notable for their vigor and hearty color. The "Live" session offers my favorite reading of "When Sonny Gets Blue" on record. "Off To The Races" is a winner from the first note of "Lover Come Back To Me" Accompanied by Jackie McLean, Pepper Adams, Wynton Kelly, Sam Jones and Art Taylor, Byrd is in fine fettle throughout. "When Your Lover Has Gone" reflects Byrds many strengths as a soloist-inventiveness, wit, lyricism are all on display in abundance. Small wonder that Byrd was so well respected by his peers. What a bargain this is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasantly Surprised 18 Jun 2013
By Lee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I always liked what little I heard from Donald Byrd (especially his work with the Black Byrds) but this collection confirmed what I already felt ... That Byrd is an excellent musician. One that can handle a horn like nobodies business. I was pleasantly surprised to receive such an awesome collection of DB albums for such a great price. Now I have more DB to listen too.
4.0 out of 5 stars A few of Byrd's classic albums mostly from Blue Note featuring Pepper Adams & Jackie McLean. 19 Feb 2014
By Dennis W. Wong - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The late Donald Byrd made some pretty good albums for the Blue Note label before he crossed over to funk and made himself a ton of money but ruined his chops by indulging in coke and such. The best albums on this collection feature his cohorts Pepper Adams & Jackie McLean plus a very young Herbie Hancock on 2 albums (Royal Flush & Free form). But most memorable are the live dates with Adams at the Five Spot plus "Royal Flush" which marked Hancock's debut on that label. If you like Byrd/Adams duo definitlely get this since the Mosaic collection of their stuff is out of print. .
