5.0 out of 5 stars Middleweight champion of Blue Note, 1 Dec 2011
By 
J. D. Naylor "jazzfan" (England) - See all my reviews
(TOP 1000 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: 8 Classics (Audio CD)
Unfairly labelled the Middleweight champion because of his mellow tone and gently melodic approach this is an excellent eight album set showing Hank in Top form. Unlike one or two of the other "Eight classic albums" series this package does have Mobley's best work on record.
The superb "Soul Station" is an all time Blue Note classic let alone a Mobley classic and the excellent "Roll Call" is a must in any Blue Note collection. The interesting "Tenor conclave" makes an appearance which features an emerging John Coltrane.
If you are an ardent Mobley fan then you will probably have most of these albums but for those looking to either replace worn out vinyl or add to your collection then this is for you.
The only down side is that the eight albums are supplied on four discs in a hinged plastic case and not eight separate albums shown in the picture.Officionados will probably baulk at the lack of information given but for about 1 per album what can you expect ?
Buy and enjoy.

This review is from: 8 Classics (Audio CD)
To Supplement J D Naylor's review I thought the track listing would help those people who would like to know what they are buying.

Althought the title sames Classic Albums I understand these are in actual fact remastered versions which makes them an even better buy.

8 top quality Blue Note vinyl LP's (1955-60) re-issued on 4 CD's all for a fiver! Absolutely amazing bargain - even if only one album had been included ("Soul Station") But you get: HM Quartet, Tenor Conclave, HM and his All-Stars, Hank, HM Quintet, HM Sextet and Roll Call as well. Superb.

A great collection of Hank Mobley's work I would have paid the same for just Soul Station but the other albums are a real bonus and the quality is superb
