      better - at least superficially. If you have both sets, it is
      advisable to hang on to the music only as well.

        OK thanks - yes I do have the music only version also. It looks as though the quality of the CDs on both versions of the full set is the same. I think this solves my dilemma! I also have the Riverside issue so anything sounds better by comparison.

        Maybe a slight mistake on Bill Knowlin's part - the slimmer version doesn't contain the book (Mr Jelly Roll) and I think the additional material he means was on a CD as a pdf file with the first ediition as well. The big booklet with an essay by John Szwed is included in the slimmer box. The sound isn't as bad as I anticipated, but a direct comparison shows that Rounder's 4 CDs of music only sounds better - at least superficially.
