DELUXE 6 CDs BOX SET

This time a collection of film soundtracks which will transform that ordinary day into one worthy itself of a film just by the sheer brilliance of the sound spilling from your speakers.

The cast of artists covered in these biopics are the golden boys, the cream of the crop - those game changing artists who left a lasting impression on our musical and cultural landscape, players like GENE KRUPA, RED NICHOLS, W.C. HANDY, BENNY GOODMAN, BIX BEIDERBECKE, EDDIE DUCHIN and actor JAMES DEAN.

But the film making process also gave opportunity for other legends to be capture in their glory, so add to this glorious mix - LOUIS ARMSTRONG, NAT KING COLE, NELSON RIDDLE, DANNY KAYE, MAHALIA JACKSON, EARTHA KIT, ELLA FITZGERALD..

The soundtracks were recorded in the hay day of studios from 1950 - 1959, safekeeping for posterity craftsmen and women at the top of their game, all captured at their natural best through vintage equipment and no pro tools in sight.

Sit back, and soak up the cool of this Moochin About box set and let what it contains within transport you to heaven - CERYS MATTHEWS, from the liner notes.
