We've gone out of our way to highlight this series because we want to make sure that all of our customers are aware of it and so have the opportunity to take advantage of this tremendous value from the folks at Proper Music.
Produced on a semi-regular schedule in London, England, each of the Proper Records Box Sets contains four CDs and a booklet of 40 to 68 pages in length. Each CD is packed to its limit, so every set holds close to five hours of music -- which in most cases translates to around 100 individual tracks. And what music! High quality mastering accompanies an extremely discerning selection of the finest recordings of popular music of the first half of the 20th Century. While the focus is on Jazz -- and let’s face it: that’s where the majority of the best music was being made (or at least recorded) during the period 1900 -1958 -- there is nevertheless quite a variety to choose from: the great male and female vocalists, swing, blues, bluegrass, country & western, celtic, doo-wop, ska, funk, gospel and more; with new additions coming every few months or so. And everything is good, especially the price. Through the combination of employing several different sources and increasing our volume, we are currently able to offer each set for the copacetic price of only $29.75 per box!
