great series by real gone jazz,
This review is from: 8 Classics (Audio CD)
I plan to buy all the sets in this jazz series by real gone jazz, you get great music from the 50's, greatly remastered by the best exponent of genre.
This one is great, as is the set by Sonny Rollins and Charlie Mingus.
The problems are technical, I don't expect extensive liner notes and it is fine that the label just gives us the name of all the players (which is not always the case) , but the problems are the following
1) the jewel cases are very unfriendly, they arrive mostly broken and the cd's fall. It is very hard to pull out the cd's from the inner part of the case and they fall on the outside part of the case (this is a one dbl case that holds 4 cd's)
2) The name of the 2 LP's on each cd should be written on the cd.
3) the slim booklet includes the musicians, but the insert on the back cover lists the name of the LP's without the musicians, it would make more sense to have all this info together in the back cover. And it would even be cheaper.
All this said I have all these releases on my wish list, I have already bought 5 sets and ordered 3 more. Each cd includes 2 ORIGINAL LP's without bonus tracks mostly it's 70-80 minutes per cd.
So, dont hesitate, at the price just buy it, you wont regret it even if this is the first jazz cd you hear

Do you mind if I ask which monk albums are on the set? Either the record label or Amazon should let us know; it's very frustrating to see all these X-album sets without knowing what exact albums are on them.
