    Just saw this five album set pop up at Amoeba SF, and couldn’t find any related threads - it’s a Universal/Verve offering, and pressed in the Netherlands.

    Any thoughts on the sound quality?

    It’s relatively inexpensive for five new albums - but I have them all in various incarnations. I’m hoping for something spectacular. :)

    Reissue of an early 80's german box. Early 16/44 digital remaster. Doesn't sound as organic as an original Verve issue but has a better overall balance than the Japanese UMV LP reissues of the early 80's.

    I have it and think it sounds great! It was released around the same time as the Coltrane impulse albums 5-CD box sets.

    What these did were recreate the original liner notes and track listings of these albums in digipak CD's with no bonus tracks or extras. This may bother some as these albums are so short to begin with. I love it though, and it includes the somewhat rare Getz/Laurindo Almaeida album.

    Oops...sorry OP. I just realized you were inquiring about the vinyl box (haven't heard that)

    I’d be interested in this. I’m a casual bossa listener and this would probably be all I’d ever want.

    wwright, did you buy the vinyl box and what are your thoughts on the sound quality?

    I had to pack up my turntable and records for a major home remodel - I should be able to tell you in a few months!
