Way back in the the 1990's, when I was getting deeper into jazz and had some limited expendable income with which I could indulge my interest, Tower Records had an outlet store in the South of Market area of SF. It made way for the not-Candlestick Park ballpark that was constructed there. But they had some great deals on cut-outs and a whole lot of these, I think they were of Italian origin, budget CDs on the "Giants of Jazz" label. Here's a couple of samples:
(I actually still have that CD somwhere, I'm sure )
Anybody else remember these or still have some of these? I think I got rid of the Wes Montgomery discs in this series once I got the Complete Riverside Recordings boxed set, but these "Giants of Jazz" discs were my first real exposure to his music. I think I had 3 Montgomery CDs at probably $3.99 or $4.99 a pop back then. I bought a ton of these kind of discs at that Tower Outlet store way back then . . .
