It isn't often that I spy a gold mine, but I did with this. Oh, don't get me wrong; there are some fantastic albums on this site. I should know, I can't keep me hands off 'em! Because of Amazon, I now have a bigger music collection than I ever did before. But you know what I mean? A true treasure-trove kinda stands out, doesn't it? And this one does.
The set was on pre-order for a time, (if I remember correctly), but I waited until it was properly available.
I get the feeling that if there are any of you who are still making up your minds over this lot, I wouldn't wait too long. I don't know how many of this set are kept at a time, but get your mitts on it now, if I were you. It's a huge thing for music lovers to be able to grab stuff from a label we all adore.
I don't quite know how you can get everything from these labels on only 14 discs, especially as all A- and B-sides are quoted as being there. I'll have to do a more thorough check later. But this package looks awesome when you first break into it. Discs are mounted in 'book-form', and there's a big book inside the front cover of the hard disc case.
So, what have we got? 8 CD's covering Invictus; 2 covering the Buddah label (which Gladys Knight featured on, I seem to remember); Two Hot Wax discs and two Music Merchant discs.
I've already got the Chairmen Of The Board disc set, so I know this HDH set will be a huge thrill to listen to. Years covered: from 1969-1977. Music: delicious.
Need any more prompting?
