June Christy "Eight Classic Albums Vol. 2" has 88 tracks held on 4 CDs encased in a double wide jewel case.

Just Like its sister set Volume One
Eight Classic Albums [Audio CD] June Christy
all the tracks have been 'Digitally remastered' and the Real Gone Label have gained well descerved reviews for this care to the sound.

But Amazon have not, at the time of writing, given us the track listing which may be of use?

The albums are
"The Swinging Chicks (with Fran Warren) (1953)",
"The Misty Miss Christy (1956)",
"This Is June Christy (1958)",
"Recalls Those Kenton Days (1959)",
"The Cool School (1960)", "Do-Re-Mi (with Bob Cooper) (1961)", "This Time Of Year (1961)" and
"Big Band Specials (1962)".

The Track List:
[Disc 1]
The Swinging Chicks (with Fran Warren)
1. Anytime
2. A Sunday Kind Of Love
3. I Hear A Rhapsody
4. You Don't Know What Love Is
5. For Heaven's Sake

A good selection of June`s many albums. A good way to renew your old L.P`s and at this price, an excellent buy. Will satisfy many of her fans and if you are from the younger generations give it a try. This is a singer who reached the top when the competition was very strong.

Big Band singers 21 Feb. 2014
By Wilfred J. Wells - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
June Christy is one of those great singers of the Big Band era. This compilation of her songs is just great ! Since I am a Big Band Era fan, I lived through it, this is a nice addition to my personal library collection.

Great June Christy Collection - Mostly Good Sound 13 Sept. 2014
By Jay Blose - Published on Amazon.com
June Christy is almost always great and Fran Warren is often very good, but the sound quality on "The Swinging Chicks" album is just not good. The sound quality on the rest of the albums is fine. What you get for the price is a lot, but aside from the music, the only information you get here is the album names and the song lists. That's it. No album covers or notes. You get what you pay for. Some of these albums are still individually available with all the missing information and notes, but some not so much or so easy to find. The best albums here are "This is June Christy" and "Big Band Specials", which is a big band lover's dream come true (top notch June vocals at her best backed up by a jazz all-star big band).

The reason the first album ain't so great sounding 15 Dec. 2014
By Jim Andrews - Published on Amazon.com
The Swinging Chicks recordings are not recordings. They are soundtracks from films made for local T.V. stages to show as part of local shows which relied on such films. The film and sound quality is not great to begin, but great stars including June, Fran, Peggy Lee, Sarah Vaughan, Nat King Cole and many others made these films.

JUNE CHRISTY: Truly, one of the greatest jazz inflected singers, and here a good value, but the sound is rated 4 stars. 11 Jun. 2015
By Stuart Meyers - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I prefer Vol. 1 which consists of the earlier, better received albums; however, the price is right and there are a lot of fine songs well performed here.
