5.0 out of 5 stars The Albums- The Track Lists-Take A Number From 1 To 10, 12 Mar 2013
Glenn Cook (South Cave, near Hull UK) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Eight Classic Albums (Audio CD)
Benny Golson's "Eight Classic Albums" seems like a great buy and it is- you get an awful lotof music But, the the time of writing the price is close to £18 which is almost twice as much as others in the 'Real Gone' Releases.

As they should be public domain the high price is a mystery.
My solution?
Buy it new from one of the associated traders on Amazon for the price of (at the time of writing) £7. plus postage which is an amazingly cheap price with 4 CDs at under a tenner.

Just like its sister CD sets inserts and discs have minimal information on them but the old saying 'at this price you can't complain' still it has a nice CD inlay pic of Benny which looks really good at this 'cheap as chips' price.

The Real Gone Jazz label has garnered some really good reviews for sound quality.
The digitally enhanced sound is a good indicator but for a proper review I really suggest you read other, more knowledgeable people's reviews.
The collection is on 4 CDs encased in a double wide jewel case

BUT like a whole lot of releases there is no track listing so I have provided one in the hope that it will be of both use and interest to the buyer.

Again if you spot any mistakes.. just add a comment and I will adjust and credit you with the correction. Honestly!

5.0 out of 5 stars From Young to Coltrane, 6 Mar 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eight Classic Albums (Audio CD)
I hadn't realised what a great player Golson was until I listened to this selection and could hear both Lester Young and an early John Coltrane sound. Many other good musicians are here too. A valuable collection.
