Format: Audio CD
This CD collection (both volumes) is a must-have for the serious student of pre-swing Jazz. If you have a fondness for the early works of Fletcher Henderson, Duke Ellington, or JellyRoll Morton (who has one side featured on this collection, by the way), I would heartily recommend you check these CDs out.
Since the metal stampers for these sides have long since been discarded by the companies that recorded them, the only source left is commercially issued 78s in varying condition. Old Yazoo has done a great job of finding clean copies and digitizing them properly. Surface noise varies from song to song, but each one is a classic in its own right.
If you've been hunting through piles of 78s for the last four or five decades, you might have some of these. But all of them? And in this good a condition? Probably not. Consider these CDs an "instant 78RPM collection" of the finest calibre.

Format: Audio CD
This is one of the very best CD's I have ever purchased. The disc is packed with rare and hot early jazz recordings from a variety of labels. I'm very impressed with the quality of the recordings: some surface noise is audible, but these haven't been "overprocessed" as so many modern re-issues of vintage material are. The recordings are generally crisp and clean. Of course, with names like King Oliver, Jelly Roll Morton, and some others you may not have heard of, the performances are spectacular (my favorite on this disc is "Postage Stomp"--what a *clean* start!). The notes are very good too, giving a brief history of al the bands included as well as many rare photos. The only thing this collection lacks is a good discography listing recording dates, personnel, matrix numbers, etc. All that is given is the title, band, and year of issue. Overall, an excellent collection!

Wow! I thought I knew Jazz, but I was wrong. This CD is a great addition to any music library. The sheer inventivness of all of these individuals is astounding. My daughter thinks I'm addicted, but I've only played it 20 or 30 times on my laptop juke box, but I take the CD along in the car so my grandkids get some understanding of diversity around a common art form.

Of course musical taste is quite personal, but if one wants to get a better understanding of Jazz recorded on the spot, at the moment, this CD is a must IMHO.

Format: Audio CD
This is a truly stunning compilation of great jazz classics by obscure bands (with the exception of those of Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, and Bennie Moten) all of which deserve to be better-known. Two of the bands, namely Louis Dumaine's Jazzola Eight and Sam Morgan's Jazz Band, were recorded in New Orleans, and Morton, Oliver and Frankie Franko, had originated from that city. Other bands were based outside the main recording centres, and were captured on record only because recording companies carried out scouting expeditions. Sales of records by these so-called territory bands were confined to their particular entertainment areas, and thus their 78s are much prized today. Remastering is faultless, and the 16-page liner note carries a commentary on each record, and rare photographs. My only criticism is that a reissue of this quality should have included a thorough discography to show recording date, matrix and catalogue numbers, and personnel. But don't let that deter you from buying this gem, together with Volume 2.

Both of these CDs make me with there were a third. Great intro to music of the era. If you want a deeper look, I'd go for "McKinney's Cotton Pickers"- Crying and Sighing. Or the 50 song playlist from "Tiny Parham" available on Amazon and elsewhere for cheap download. I have both, along with these 2 CDs. I also have one of King Oliver from the year 1930 I believe. All great stuff. Jazz peaked in the Swing era, I say, but before it did, there was a little more freedom and wildness, and it was inventive from the very beginning. But maybe the word I want is "raw". There were no rules or expectations that would come later when the music was big business too. So exuberance and joy: try being sad playing this. I dare you.
