    Already in the Classical thread but let's alert folks here too...

    Vivaldi Masterworks
    - 28 CDs boxset by Decca

    CDN $ 29.49

    http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B004I7MCHA

    Mostly performed by Hogwood/Academy of Ancient Music, I think it's good introduction to Vivaldi's work.
    The set also features some recordings by The Australian Brandeburg Orchestra (never heard about them) and Salvatore Accardo.

    tracklisting and samples are here


    Another excellent deal on Amazon Canada is, imho, The Perfect Deutsche Harmonia Mundi 25 CDs box set

    CDN $ 26.99

    http://www.amazon.ca/dp/B00CA6Y7RO

    The same set is £24 on Amazon UK and $ 50 on Amazon.com

    Here's how to post short URL links to Amazon:

    The right side of a product page has a "Share" link. It is next to buttons for email, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest, and below the "Add to Cart" and "More Buying Choices" boxes.

    Click on "Share," and a box comes up. You will see a short URL for the item. (You'll notice the short URL uses the product ASIN.)

    Example:

    Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness (Box Set) (Vinyl) ~ Smashing Pumpkins

    It was limited to 5000 copies, has been sold out for some time, and currently sells for nearly $200 for new copies from third parties, so if you can get it from Amazon Ca for $80, then, yes, it's a good deal.

    They had it for $47 when released but for a two year old collection that may be the best one can do now.

    Thanks for the tip, mick_sh. I have little Howlin' Wolf, so given the price, I decided to get this set. It is much more expensive elsewhere.

    Checking amazon.com, I stumbled upon the following set, which I have seen before. It's three discs, but I wonder how it compares in terms of mastering to the four-disc set. It's probably been discussed on the Music board.

    In my view it's the best box for sound and selection. I've had them all.

    What makes this one better than the Hip-O Select box Aoxomoxoa?

    The Hip-O set concentrates on a portion of Wolf's recordings but the 3 cd set spans a longer period of time.
    As for sound it's the same old stpry. The sound on the earlier box is better. It is not loud or shrill. I find the Hip-o stuff ok, but not as good. It's a bit compressed. The old MCA's are not. The Charley box is pretty good too.

    I thought the Charley box was NR'ed, therefore non-forum approved?

    It is definitely best to grab these Hip-O Select sets early, look at what has happened to the Little Walter set, now the "Wolf" set is starting to get out of control.

    The Charley set is not really an option for most anyway. I don't rerember it being too bad but I sold mine a long while ago. I think I burnt it to itunes so I may check it out again.

    The price alone would make it not an option.

    I know this had jumped up in price to over $100, but I just noticed it has dropped again to $77.85...
