Jazz Sampler from Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab. Established in 1977 by Brad Miller, MFSL specializes in remastering major-label music for the "audiophile" market. CD releases began in 1984.
Each box contains 25 slipcase CDs, a booklet (up to 186 pages) and an index. The booklets contain extensive notes (Eng/Fr) with recording dates and line-ups. 31 hours of music in each box, totalling 1677 tracks Each track has been restored and mastered from original sources. The only reason I can think of for there not yet being a review of these four boxed sets, is that those who own them are just too busy having one hell of a blast listening to them. Some people moan about the 50 year copyright law for audio recordings in Europe, but without it this highly entertaining, eye-opening and educational undertaking could never have taken place. These 100 discs (spread over four boxed sets of 25 discs) tell the story of jazz from 1898 to 1959.
An excellent budget compilation of the wonderful Bethlehem Records label - what a roster of artists they had. Very good sound too. The Bethlehem label focused on jazz releases, and this set collects some great examples of jazz–vocally and instrumentally–between the years 1958-62. One look at the artists on this 60 track 2 CD set shows how many fine artists released music on the label. Like other collections from One Day Music, there's no booklet, only a short paragraph about the label and a few of the featured artists. The digitally remastered sound is good overall within the limits of recording styles of the era.

Every dvd contains a booklet , with italian words, but the photo are extremely important for all the groups who partecipate at the show. I am sorry i made a self description because no review found. This is for me a masterpiece how rock and other style begin evolving till today musi, in any kind of genere.
Twenty-one people were murdered when terrorists blew up two Birmingham pubs on the same night almost 40 years ago. The question, 'who bombed Birmingham?' remains unanswered. Today the family of one of the victims asks a much simpler question, 'who's still looking for them?' Our cameras have been following the twists and turns of their campaign all year. Narrated by David Harewood.
