5.0 out of 5 stars Which Albums are on The Set and the Track Listing- Carmen Geddit?
This four CD set contains eight albums from Carmen.
The Albums are digitally remastered but some American reviewers have noted the sound so you may wish to check out their comments.

The collection is on 4 CDs encased in a double wide jewel case for the price of One CD or less makes this an attractive purchase.(Under a tenner on Feb 2013)

BUT...

3.0 out of 5 stars Rich, velvet voice... but not much emotion
I thought I'd always REALLY liked Carmen Mcrae
so I shelled out on these- but I got tired of her
pretty quickly.
Don't get me wrong...she's fine for smooth Jazz,
but if you're after something a little deeper..?
Hmmm.

(HALL OF FAME REVIEWER)    (VINE VOICE)    (TOP 10 REVIEWER)    (REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Eight Classic Albums [Audio CD] Carmen Mcrae (Audio CD)
This four CD set contains eight albums from Carmen.
The Albums are digitally remastered but some American reviewers have noted the sound so you may wish to check out their comments.

The collection is on 4 CDs encased in a double wide jewel case for the price of One CD or less makes this an attractive purchase.(Under a tenner on Feb 2013)

BUT when recommended this set by Amazon I found that there was no indication of which classic albums were included nor the track listing.

The digitally enhanced sound is a good indicator but for a proper review I really suggest you read other, more knowledgeable people's reviews.

If any kind soul can tell me the names of the classic albums and the 'split' over the 4 CDs I would be grateful. Just add a comment and I will cut and paste and give you a credit for your hard and kind work.

As always if you see any typos add a note and I will correct...
The albums included are
Carmen McRae,
When You're Away,
Torchy,

4.0 out of 5 stars A God Vintage Collection of Songs by Carmen McRae, 24 Nov 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eight Classic Albums [Audio CD] Carmen Mcrae (Audio CD)
Bargain-priced 4-CD set covering 8 vintage Carmen McRae albums.
Sound quality is quite acceptable for these early recordings (mid 1950s - early1960s), but volume levels vary between some albums.
Only criticism is the poor quality of the jewel case - the nodes holding the CDs are so brittle that two of them have already shattered into small pieces when the package was opened. This caused small scratches to the dislodged CDs during shipping.
