Before Ginger Baker, Carl Palmer and Animal from the Muppets there was Sandy nelson.
Sandy Nelson!

"Eight Classic Albums Plus Bonus Singles" contains a fabulous collection of
88 digitally remastered tracks housed on 4 CDs and packaged in a double wide jewel case.

You get a whole lot of great music for a really cheap price.
The Real Gone Jazz label has garnered some really good reviews for sound quality.
The digitally enhanced sound is a good indicator but for a proper review I really suggest you read other, more knowledgeable people's reviews.

But Amazon have not given us the track listing of this brilliant and influential performer so I have,

The Albums are
"Sandy Nelson Plays Teen Beat (1960)",
"He's A Drummer Boy (1960)",
"Let There Be Drums (1962)",
"Drums Are My Beat (1962)",
"Drummin' Up A Storm (1962)",
"Golden Hits (1962)", "Country Style (1962)" and
"Compelling Percussion (1962)".

It also includes singles from 1959 and 1962.

Here are the tracks if you cut and paste omit the last track on the last CD.

Track List:
[Disc 1]
Sandy Nelson Plays Teen Beat
1. Teen Beat
2. Jivin' Around (Parts 1 & 2)
3. Funny Face

Disc 1, Many track are "Fake Stereo" Those that were True Stereo still are true stereo. But a lot of gems are fake stereo, like "The Flip", "Cool Operator" or "Jive Talk".

Disc 2 is identical to old "See For Miles" Let There Be Drums/Drums Are My Beat CD release in both track listing and sound quality. Tracks 1-9 Mono (the Let There Be Drums LP). For the old "Drums Are My Beat" LP tracks on disc 2, tracks 10, 11,12,13, 14, 15 & 19 are true stereo, Track 19 "Day Drumming" is fake stereo, the rest have a mono sound, but it is clear they are rechanneled from the original "fake stereo" track from the LP masters, as some sound so echo like, none more so than "Drums are my Beat" where it sounds like there are two pianos playing the lead (to hear how it should sound, go to ace Records site and find the CD "London American Label Year by Year 1962", you can preview the track and hear how clear and simple it is compared to the one here).

On CD 3 you get true stereo (except track 22), and it's great to hear "here we go again", for the first time in many years for me. Track 22 is MONO, but sounds so distorted (but as it is clearly "Drum Roll" (track 10 on CD 2) speeded up a touch you haven't lost
much.

CD4 is all true stereo except track 15 "Jump Time" but this is just a fake stereo version of "Bouncy" that is in MONO as track 6 on CD 2.
All in all I'm sort of disappointed that the "digitally remastered..." statement made me impulse buy.

Maybe ACE Records will do Sandy Nelson justice, and release these tracks. If you already have the "See Fore Miles" or the recent "Jasmine" Sandy Nelson CDs, then only CD4 on this set is an improvement.
It's worth pointing out that Sandy Nelson himself is still drumming, but won't get much from these pre-1963 (out of copyright here in the UK) recordings.

I Do love all these early instrumental albums this one is great as you get 8 albums
plus singles some of the cuts are quite short but there are some interesting drum
sound scapes and drum solos Sandys drumming can be repititous
but even so this is great value if you want all his major recordings on one collection
sound quality is good

These eight albums are excellent value for money showing the development of Sandy over 3 prolific years. He constantly experimented with his sound and interpretation of percussion. His sound has always been recognisable with his kits tuned down to deepen and flatten the tone, this was his style but did make the kit harder to play but also gave him his own signature as a drummer. Well worth owning.
