Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Eight Classic Albums (Audio CD)
This is a brilliant way to get 8 of olivers late 50's early 60's classics in a neat 4 cd package.
You get what you pay for with these Real Gone sets with no liner notes or even recording or production credits. You do get personel who played on each album though.
A word on sound quality. I've picked up 4 of these sets over the last few months and not one of them has disapointed in the sound stakes. I compared the one cd i already had (Blues and the Abstract Truth) with the Real Gone version and i coudn't tell the differance. I mean there was no differance at all. I suspect Real Gone have just duplicated an earlier issue for each album. Most of these albums came out on either the OJC label or Impulse and if they are these masterings then theres nothing to worry about. I certainly have no complaints with the sets i've bought which come from the late 50's early 60's period. Perhaps some of the earlier sourced stuff might be more vairiable in sound quality.
If your not to bothered about the cheap packaging then buy with confidence.
