great records, lousy sound quality, 19 Jan 2011
My high expectations about this double CD sunk as soon as I put it on: the sound quality is abominable on your average HiFi set. Perhaps that 'digitally remastered for probably the best ever sound quality' means that you have to listen to it with I-pod earplugs in, but the thin and lifeless sound does no honor at all to the greatness of Brown and Roach. To make sure that I wasn't mistaken I put on 'I get a kick out of you', the same version but from a different compilation, Verve's 'The best of ultimate Clifford Brown' and that put the smile back on my face. My advice to buyers: skip this compilation and look for the original cd's.
