I have owned this Robert Parker Classic Years compact disc for years and each time I play it I am stunned by the sheer quality of the sound that remarkable audio engineer was able to obtain from 78's which were already seventy years old by the time he was able to work his magic on them.

That apart, the main issue here is of course the musicianship of the legendary Artie Shaw (a novellist and a painter too, as well as a much married man who counted Ava Gardner among the beautiful women he was fortunate enough to wed). His superb musicianship is wonderfully represented on this disc and I would urge anyone with an interest in music, whether Gregorian Chant, Renaissance Polyphony, Mozart, Mahler or Thomas Ades, to buy this record. It is phenomenal.

4.0 out of 5 stars Swing Legends: 22 Classic Hits Artie Shaw [Original recording remastered], 10 Feb 2012

Bought this on the strength of a BBC documentary on Artie Shaw. I wasn't disappointed in this remastered classic hits album which lets you hear the virtuosity of Artie Shaw and his musicians. It also lets you hear his efforts in trying to be creative and to break away from the mainstream swing music of the period. As the title suggests all the classic Shaw tracks are there to be heard and enjoyed. Despite the remastering, good as it is, I'd love to have heard him with today's recording technology. This is a little bit of history which was hidden from many of us too young to have heard him in his heyday.
