This double album issue defines the best moments from the three CD releases. The addition of the near silent George Brecht piece adds extra depth to the overall experience.
The package is really classy and the pressings are very nice indeed, the live sound quality - for 1962 - is excellent, with the audience 'noise' adding an extra element to the proceedings. Archive material at it's best.
