Re: [RedHotJazz] Re: availability of Collector's Classics CDs
I fully agree and I'm aware of John R T Davies great work but I only thought better a Manone/Noone on the French Classic label than no Manone/Noone at all.
Thanks Wouter, but Michael has put his finger on precisely the reason
why I'm hoping to find copies of the Davies-remastered "Collector's
Classics" CDs rather than the similar items produced by the
French "Classics" label. I have several discs from both these
companies for the same artists and there's no comparison in terms of
sound quality -- Davies was simply the best.

A reasonable sentiment and I appreciate your offering it. But I'll try
for the "Collector's Classics" before settling for the
French "Classics" (and nothing against the French!).

- Eleven of the Junie Cobb tracks appeared on an LP called "Chicago In The
20'ies" (sic) (Collector's Classics, CC 47). The sound quality is comparable to
the CD you mention. Was this label connected to the Danish Collector's
Classics? The LP sleeve has no production credits or country of origin.
