The Rivers is a great set, but three out of four albums have been released in improved sound on SHM-CD at the time of Blue Note's 75th anniversary.
From memory, the first album as contained in this set does not sound all that different from the 24bit Connoisseur.
The book contains mostly reproductions of the original liner notes.
Reissue of two Decca LPs. This originally cheap Spanish issue now goes for high prices - I was lucky to find a low price offer. Nice, but not as impressive as I thought it would be. Larkins is the congenial accompanist and perhaps shines the most in that role.
Now also on offer at JPC and Amazon as an import. No sign of a domestic release yet, I think.
