The not so best part here is the reason you would buy a set like this; how do the records sound? Well, there's no background noise, popping, anything like that. Records are in perfect shape. However, the pressing isn't the best I've ever heard. Granted, I haven't heard most of these recordings on vinyl, and the only thing I have to compare is a SACD release of the first title in this set. I have that SACD, and it sounds pretty clearly better.
Bottom line is, if you want all of Ella and Louis' tracks in one collection with OK quality, this set is a no-brainer, but if you're looking for a pressing that is out of this world this one might disappoint you.
Oh, and one final caveat...I got this cheap. I mean, super-cheap, as in under $20. If you buy this for under $20, you should be awfully happy, just because of what you get. I can't imagine they could press the records and include the box and artwork for much less than that; I'm basing my review on the prices that it looks like today on Amazon.
