Still, if you can afford them and get them before they are gone, they come with my very highest recommendation. Jack Roberts Dagogo

The new set is struck from the same parts but pressed on 200-gram vinyl at Kassem's own QRP plant. ... judging from other comparisons I've done, I'd guess the QRPs have an edge. But I will say this: these are, for the most part, extraordinary-sounding recordings, better than any you're likely to find. If you love the music, you should consider the purchase." — Fred Kaplan, Stereophile, Nov. 1, 2017

All Of Bill Evans 180g Vinyl Riverside Releases Cut at 45 RPM PLUS The Cannonball Adderley Know What I Mean? Release For Which Evans Was Such An Important Contributor.

Of everything Analogue Productions has reissued, nothing has come close in sales or accolades to the 45-RPM versions of Bill Evans titles from his Riverside catalog. And now they've all been compiled into one irresistible box set package. Includes facsimiles of each original jacket along with an 18-page booklet detailing Evans' career and Riverside era.

Titles Included: New Jazz Conceptions, Everybody Digs Bill Evans, Portrait In Jazz, Explorations, Sunday At The Village Vanguard, Waltz For Debby, Moonbeams, Know What I Mean?, Interplay, How My Heart Sings! and At Shelly's Manne-Hole.

I mentioned in my Christmas Beatnik article that this was one of the many LPs that my wife got me for Christmas. In that article I said, “These are the best sounding Bill Evans recordings I have ever heard. I do not have mint copies of any of the originals, but I do have a couple of “VG+++” to “Near Mint-”, and they do not compare in overall sound or dynamics. My only complaint with this set is that, for the money, they could have gotten a decent box that wasn’t so tight that you can’t get the LPs in and out.”
Well, now that I have had a couple of months to listen to all of them more than once, I wouldn’t change a word of that description. If you dig Bill Evans and what jazz lover doesn’t, then you need to get these before they are all gone. These LPs are, without a doubt, some of the most incredible jazz ever recorded. This box set gives this music to us in a sound that is so incredibly alive, dynamic, and quiet that it’s easy to forget you’re listening to recordings.

I do have a few regrets about these great LPs though. First, the whole box set is so expensive that it would have been nice if they were also released individually for those who cannot lay out this much money at one time. Second, for this kind of money the box itself could have been more substantial and better made. Still, if you can afford them and get them before they are gone, they come with my very highest recommendation.
