So happy being able order some fine jazz on five seminal recordings. All tip top quality, fine pressings, original artwork. At that price, what's not to like?

BEST OF JAZZ STARTER KIT

5

Package arrived today. I have to say I was dubious when placing the order but can only say how impressed I am with the service, quality and album selection. My only complaint is that I would like to place a repeat order. The nature of the deal is a random choice by ZAVVI so run the risk of getting too many duplicates. Shame.

Great introduction to jazz - But..

3

This is a fantastic way to get you into some real classic jazz albums. I had only ever dipped my toes in the water previously so this doubled my collection in one hit at a great price. I guess for that reason it's churlish to complain but if you're looking for the best mastering quality here, then you'll be sorely disappointed. These are clearly digital remasters of the albums and although the pressings themselves are good, with nice quiet vinyl, the mastering quality is poor and the music sounds dull and lifeless. I received a copy of Getz/Gilberto in my collection and having already owned an older (still not the original) pressing of this album, my older copy has so much more life, depth, detail and sounds so much more natural than this remaster. For me, sadly, these won't get much play because they just don't sound that great.

Not the bargain it was

4

Still good value, but it's not the bargain it was. It started as 10 albums for this price, which is fantastic. The pressings are very good, but as variations on the offer keep coming and going, the DeAgostini Jazz At 33⅓ rpm overstock must be seriously large. I'll be back when the major bargain is reinstated.

Worth it

5

Great selection of Jazz records. No doubt about it. For the price it's a no-brainer deal. Only complaint I have is regarding the packaging. Allow me to elaborate (last review of mine, on another product, was not published when I gave similar honest feedback so we'll see if this one gets through). The records were inside a large box without any bubble wrap, stiffeners etc. They were loose inside and during transit of course moved around and got banged up. Two of the record sleeves had some damage, inner sleeves on all five records had splits on the seams; however, luckily the records themselves were in mint condition. That is all. Cheers

What a value!

5 LP albums, all of them Jazz masterpieces (Sketches Of Spain, Getz/Gilberto, Money Jungle, Go, Out To Lunch!) on quality vinyl pressings, for such a price. Fantastic deal.
