These 7 album spread over 4 Cds represent excellent value for money and a great way to acquire a lot of music for the cost of 1 CD.
But Amazon don't list which classic albums are included nor the track listing.

So I have done it to help you.

The Cover boasts that these seven classic albums have been Digitally Enhanced for Superior Sound which should add to their attraction for the potential buyer.

Any Typos or ommissions?
Just add a note and I will correct and give you a mention for your sharp eyes!

The albums are "Horace Silver And The Jazz Messengers (1955)",
"6 Pieces Of Silver (1956)",
"The Stylings Of Silver (1957)",
"Further Explorations (1957)", "Finger Poppin' (1959)",
"Blowin' The Blues Away (1959)" and
"Horace-Scope (1960)".

I remember many years ago first hearing 'Senor Blues' and was immediately addicted to Sliver's hard bop . I already was well aware of his playing but his later playing included these, to me, wonderful compositions. I cannot restrict my enthusiasm for his music to this day. If you can escape the utter banality of to -day's pop scene and you like music with drive and rhythm then listen to these albums - a real bargain to have them on discs that won't fade . Horace died recently here is what he was about and the music speaks for itself. Wonderful.

Worth its weight in gold 18 Sept. 2013
By Mike Tarrani - Published on Amazon.com
Puns aside this is a great collection of albums that chronicle much of Silver's recorded work as a leader from 1954 through 1960.

The two questions most people have are (1) How is the sound quality? (2) What does this set contain? To my ears the sound quality is more than acceptable. Most of the Real Gone Jazz album sets are well mastered and this one is no exception. Moreover, the discs have played flawlessly on a number of players, so the manufacturing quality is also excellent based on my experience.

Regarding contents this set contains seven albums on four discs. I have taken the time to track down sufficient background info on each of the seven albums in this set so you will know exactly what you will be getting. In most cases the pages of the linked albums below also contain sound samples that will greatly aid in your determination of the value of this set. Here is what you get:

===========
DISC ONE

The first eight tracks are from the album titled Horace Silver & the Jazz Messengers, which may be the birth of hard bop. It was recorded for Blue Note at Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio over two sessions: December 13, 1954 and February 6, 1955, and released later in 1955. Personnel on both sessions are Kenny Dorham on trumpet, Hank Mobley on tenor sax, Horace on piano, Doug Watkins on bass and Art Blakey on drums.

Missing tracks, incorrect meta-data, horrible product. Do not buy. 20 Nov. 2013
By Kevin C. - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Absolutely do NOT buy this product. The CD's are missing some tracks, AND the encoded meta-data for all the CD's is completely wrong. The tracks are in the wrong order on the CD's and correspond to the WRONG albums. I spent two hours correctly encoding the files to have the correct track names, numbers, and albums. Buying this is a waste of your time, and the CD's are missing tracks from the albums. The set comes with an insert that tells you all the tracks "included" on the CD's. My set is missing 4 tracks from this insert.

Strange 7 Jan. 2014
By Daniel Meier - Published on Amazon.com
Although the cover of this collection and the CD labels say "Horace Silver", all the music on the CDs belong to Horace Parlan. Nice collection of Horace Parlan songs though...
The best of Horace Silver in one multi set CD. 13 July 2014
By kevin - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I was very impressed with the amount of music in this set. All the classics are there. The "late great" Mr Silver shines through on these CDs. Quality is top notch and it is obvious the original master tapes were used for this excellent AAD recording.

Very good buy; classic Horace Silver 7 Mar. 2013
By Bruce Nissen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is seven of Horace Silver's classic albums crammed onto 4 CDs. There are no new unissued takes or new songs, and there are no liner notes. Basically, the company just took 7 albums and put them on 4 CDs. I guess they can do this is England for free, since copyright expires after 50 years.

Horace Silver's music is good; not great, in my opinion. His albums are always very accessible, not terribly "deep"; but a lot of fun to listen to. Her has a knack for finding catchy "hooks" to build a song around. This is just typical Horace Silver.

The sound quality is acceptable, and the price is fantastic. Where else can you get so much for so little? So,I rate it highly, but just know that there are no "extras" and not even any liner notes. (Warning: because so much is crammed into only 4 CDs, one of my CD players skips near the end of these CDs. Others of my players don't. When you get over 70 minutes on a disc, that may happen. )
