Volume 1 of a three volume limited edition (2500 copies) boxed set compiling the complete recordings of the Commodore label, re-issued by the Mosaic Label. No indication of release year. The original price was 250$ per volume/box in the set.

The 23 LP's have no individual covers, but are bundled in two separate hard boxes that go into an outer hard box. Includes 64 page booklet with credits and company and artists history by Dan Morgenstern and interview with Milt Gabler included.

The tracks on the complete set are organized chronologically releasing the complete sessions held by Commodore from January 1938 to December 1943 - except for the first five tracks on record 1 that were recorded: 1929 (1-A1), 1931 (1-A2,1-A3) and 1935 (1-A4,1-A5).
