I found this Proper box set containing some incredible performances. I know some, if not all, have been probably released elsewhere (i am aware of the Roost recordings from the Live Savoy set, and Carnegie Hall Bluenote release ). How does this Proper set compare with those and the other releases that contain these performances?

A great set. Have not compared it to the others you mention, but there's a lot of wonderful music here. :tup:)

Once you hear the word from Bird there is no sampler CD or Lp that can keep you satisfied.

Yep! Full disclosure, I am a Bird completist ... get the Live Savoy, Bird on Verve Box, Dial/Savoy Studio, Live at Birdland 4-disc set, Town Hall, Summit Meeting, Massey Hall ... hell just get all the damn Bird that you can afford and then go into debt to afford more.

Just picked up this set for a really reasonable price. Nice set, decent sound quality. Haven't had a chance to go though the booklet but its about 50 pages

I think it's a great value, and there are things on there I had never heard before.
