ByGlenn CookHALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICEon 29 May 2012
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!
Eddie say that 'If you don't already have Moanin' and A Night In Tunisia this set is worth buying just for those 2 albums on their own.'
