3.0 out of 5 stars A little mean..., 15 Aug. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Shape of Jazz to Come / Change of The Century / This is Our Music / Free Jazz / Ornette! (Original Album Series) (Audio CD)
The music is,of course,5 stars,but I find it parsimonious on the part of the record company to include no extra takes,such as the first take of Free Jazz.It says exactly what it is,"original album",so no deception,just a mean spirited approach.
Sony/Columbia have served the customer much better with their similar box sets(not in every case,but many)by including alternates and more.A good example is the Monk set containg Underground,Solo,etc.(A bad example is the Louis Armstrong set,with older,less fulsome accounts of Satch plays Fats and the WC Handy tribute).
So,a good buy,yes,but not a great one...every one of these Warner/Atlantic sets that I've looked at suffers from the same reluctance to provide extra material,so I cannot admire their approach.

I think the intention of the record company is to provide music at a budget price which in this case is currently about £2 per album. For that price I personally would not expect extra and alternative takes. I think its not the record company that is mean spirited but in fact your expectations which are a little too high.

The Idea is to have the albums in their original form - if you want extra's and outtakes then purchase the
"Beauty Is A Rare Thing" collection. When that came out people complaned about the tracks being chronological and therefore loosing original album sequencing - difficult/impossible? to please everyone

What about the sound quality ? Does anyone know if this is the remastered versions, or the older digital masters from the 80's ?
