European grey-market public domain label that reissues classic jazz albums on CD. Usually these albums have been expanded with bonus tracks. Oftentimes two different albums from same artist have been bundled on a single CD.

Quality of these reissues is actually pretty nice. They sound very similar to currently available Columbia, Sony, Blue Note etc. remasters. These commercially available CD reissues were probably used for source material.

Since most of these titles are classic albums that are plenty available in various pressings and formats, these reissues feel rather unneccessary. These reissues don't really offer anything new or superior. Since there's hardly any price difference, I'd take official CD versions over these public domain reissues any day.
