Disappointed

(3 out of 5 stars)

"I guess I'm probably just a fan of George's smooth later 50s & 60s sound, I think that material is just phenomenal. As for this box set: it includes a very informative booklet, but the sound quality is dull, not crisp at all and it just turned me off enough that I stuck my copy on eBay.It was like listening to an AM radio broadcast & as excited as I was to get this, I didn't add it to my collection for long simply because of the sound quality, certainly not the performance. If you can get past this fact, it is a very good compilation of his early material (as early as 1939)."
