By Glenn Cook HALL OF FAME TOP 10 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
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)".

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth its weight in gold 18 Sep 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.
Creepin' In
Stop Time
To Whom it May Concern

1.0 out of 5 stars 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars 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...

4.0 out of 5 stars FIRSTRATE MUSIC BY A SUPRISINGLY COMPLICATED MUSICAN 5 Jun 2013
By David Keymer - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
The composite sets offered under the Real Gone Jazz label offer classic performances from the lfifties and early sixties at affordable -no, absurdly inexpensive! --
prices. I bought many of these albums when they first appeared in vinyl and now I'm paying less than I paid then for them.

The Horace Silver ensemble albums offered in this collection are of generally high quality. I like least the slow tunes -I always felt Silver didn't have a handle on them as much as on up tunes. They seem to dog it, and the rhythm feels sluggish too often. On up tunes, no one beat out Silver. It wasn't just the funky feel, although, wow, ARE they funky! It was also the quality and inventiveness of Silver's writing --complicated tunes, with second melodies and rhythms, and a liking for Latin-flavored beats-- and the very high quality of the musicians playing it.

Funk could be mindless muscle but it never was with Silver, who was, and is, an intelligent and perceptive composer and band leader, and an interesting and propulsive soloist.

4.0 out of 5 stars 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. )
