Well, what can I say? Working out about 72p a CD, the chance to get this bumper set from the queen was too good to pass up. The box is a bit smaller than an lp and about an inch thick, the cd's come in cardboard sleeves, partitioned into 4 lots of 12.
Now the music. If you know Ella, you know you're getting some of the definitive interpretations of a lot of classics/standards/evergreens and this covers the lot - cheeky early novelty songs, cool jazz, big band swing etc. It's not a complete anthology by any means, and trying to catalogue some of these onto the ipod as "proper" albums has meant a bit of detective work (but only if you let such things worry you, as they do me...). Just a great set from the greatest voice. Ever
