At long last The Real Gone Label have released a second volume of the Terrific Gerry Mulligan.
"Seven Classic Albums Vol. 2" contains as you may have guessed 7 classic LPs.
The good news is that the sound has been 'Digitally remastered'.
The Real Gone Label release 100s of this type of collection at 'cheap as chips' prices.
The Bad News is that there is minimal information and I have often found that it is only on the first CD of the set that actually lists the tracks as they play.
BUT the label really put all their efforts into remastering the sound and, let's face it, most fair people would agree that is what counts in the end?
The 4 Cds are housed in a double wide jewel case. and that is about it.
But At the time of writing Amazon have not given us the track listing so I checked it up and thought the information would be of interest to anyone that wants to know what's on the 4CDs.
The albums are
"Gerry Mulligan - Paul Desmond Quartet (1958)",
"The Concert Jazz Band (1960)",
"At The Village Vanguard (1961)",
"Gerry Mulligan Presents A Concert In Jazz (1961)",
"Two Of A Mind (with Paul Desmond)(1962)",
"The Gerry Mulligan Quartet (1962)" and
"Gerry Mulligan And The Concert Jazz Band On Tour (1962)".
