    The Good And The Bad Of It

    The Good - A lot of music at a great price.Well packaged with an imformative booklet and sessionography. The Bad - Guitar addicts(like me)beware.Most songs contain very little guitar,rhythm only in some cases.Brass and piano playing dominate this set.This is fine on early material,(because that's the way it was),but as the discs move thru the years,the songs could and should have contained more guitar playing as that type of material is available.The title is a bit misleading as the songs come up short in the soloing department.A 3 to 4 minute song usually has less than a 40 second solo.
