Product description

Product Description

Every record-collector has run across an album with the little sax-playing bird in its label-logo, right next to the brand name "Charlie Parker Records" or "CP Parker Records". Turning the sleeve over, especially if it was one of the non-Parker releases, and seeing a Sixties-release date under the header "Stereo-pact!" was as exciting an experience as it was confusing. "speculation and misinformation abounds, while fans and experts discuss". Even though a discography can be found online, never before has anyone made an attempt to present the complete output of this legendary label in one set. This comprehensive collection - completely re-mastered and newly annotated - is the first to present the entire output of "Charlie Parker Records" from 1961 until 1965. An early boutique-label, it was initially founded by Parker's widow Doris and the music-magnate Aubrey Mayhew to control the release of many of the illegal live-bootlegs that had found their way to collectors in the years after Charlie Parker's death. Some fifty albums and at least five singles were released on "Charlie Parker Records", lovingly dedicated to the music of Charlie Parker, as well as original and vintage works by his friends, followers and admirers. As such, this boxset is not only an anthology of this small and eclectic company, but a testament to its spirit – and to the spirit of the man himself, the highflying "Yardbird", whose ideas and improvisations still inspire musicians and listeners to this day, more than fifty-five years after his death.
