5.0 out of 5 stars Track Listing -Look At The Birdie- Swingin' Kilts!!, 29 May 2012
This review is from: Eight Classic Albums [Audio CD] Art Blakey (Audio CD)
This is not a review more just information on what is on this set.

This 4 CD set contains 8 classic albums.

The albums are
'Holiday for Skins Vol 1',
'Roots and Herbs',
'Holiday for Skins Vol 2',
'Moanin',
'A Night in Tunisia',
'Mosaic',
'Art Blakey Jazz Messangers', and
'The Witch Doctor'.

Amazon have not published one so I though this may help.
This 'review' has evolved with kind and thoughtful people adding important infomation so a positive vote that this review is helpful is a vote not just for me but for those kind people too. Thankyou for you encouragment. Much appeciated.

If any kind sould can tell me the 'split' on the CDs would they add a comment and I will adjust the infor and , as always, credit, them with the information.Mr Eddie Snide Has come up trumps!
Thanks Eddie!

Don't expect any complete booklet and any reproduction of original art works, what a pity! these are not first rate compilations, that's for sure ...

I agree BUT an important point is at l just over 2 quid per LP/Album you get a whole lot of music wonderful music, on a convienient system at a cheap as chips price.
That's eight for the price of one in my book.

What you do have to look out for is the sound.
Some of these sets have been enhanced which makes them an even bigger bargain.
Just check out the other reviews.
