This album is a discographical nightmare, there's no sleeve notes no discographical information and the tracks have been pulled from all over the place and presented in a random order that suggests that someone wrote down the tracks to be used on separate pieces of paper and threw them into the air and presented them in the order that they were picked up. So why not give this one a swerve and go for something else? Well, the price is right plus Dave Brubecks Quartet didn't change much over it's lifetime so the personnel remains fairly static but mainly because the music is just great, every track is pure gold.
If you're new to Brubeck buy this and when you're a fan (and you will be) buy the original albums seperately.
Go on, over three hours of brilliant music for less than four quid, you owe it to yourself.

This set of classic Dave Brubeck is a must get if you are a fan of the cool jazz period of 1958 to the mid 1960s. Albums such as Time Out are featured on these CDs largely including many great Live songs and the all time classic Unsquare Dance, must be one of the catchiest songs ever produced.
There are also some beautiful romantic jazz ballads such as Georgia On My Mind and Blue Shadows In The Night.
As a value for money set this is a must get.
