    Just listened to the revised version, sound is very good on almost all tracks. I'm not gonna be super critical on tracks that were laid down 70-100 years ago. the transfers were cleaned up quite nicely. on my copy LP 1 was a tiny bit noisy because of some superficial dirt and scuffs so i was unsure of the quality of the transfers. i cleaned that one twice, maybe on real high end cleaning eqipment things will get better. on subsequent records it was dead silent on almost all tracks. i tend not to turn it up too loud on my B&W speakers with older recordings not wanting to throw some oddball distortion through them, but when i replayed a few tracks i knew sounded good the first time trough they sounded quite nice turned up loudly. i wish i had room to keep this on my shelves for a while, but i cant keep everything i trip across so it will be sold.

        An eclectic collection of Jazz throughout the century. Includes tracks like Body & Soul, KoKo, So What, and even Alabama (Coltrane). However, sound quality is subpar, and most of the listening experience consists of critiquing and grading the audio transfers rather than actually enjoying the music.

          Great music all in the same place but the sound is a bit rough on a few.
