John Coltrane Complete Prestige Record Japan 18 CD Box 2K/20 bit remas

13 posts in this topic

I haven't heard the box set, but if the K2 remastering is the same as the one made for the individual K2 reissues (US or japan releases), then I can recommend it

I have heard these K2 titles and they all sound very good, better than the OJC CDs:

- Coltrane

- Stardust

- All mornin' long (Red Garland)

- Soul Junction (Red Garland)

- Kenny Burrell & John Coltrane

What's different on this set versus the 16 cd domestic boxed set?

Bit of a late update - have listened to all 18 discs in the set now and the sound is great. The music ranges from good to fantastic of course. Verg glad I bought it. :tup:tup

....and of course the added benefit, you'll never have to "upgrade" any of this material again. Unlike the rest of us. :w:w:w

I've always thought for a box set that came out in 1991, the sound on the U.S. domestic version of the box was not shabby at all. Glad I got it for cheap in the Great Concord Blowout Sale of 2006.

I have to agree, I like the sound of the box set, and haven't really done much upgrading of these titles over the years. Of course I saved up months and paid a pretty penny for my set in the early 'nineties!

Same here, since I bought the set, (at full price :wacko:) I was satisfied with sound, though I bought most of the original vinyls since then...and I am even more satisfied. :)

I admit that I have some of those 2K cds, not Coltrane, and they sound very good, IMHO.

Maybe a stupid question ... but would it be worth getting this if you have fairly

recently bought the Fearless Leader set?

No. Buy Interplay instead. A third box is supposed to be released this year, thus completing the set.

I've always been more than happy with the old OJC and U.S. box sets. No Ron McMaster, lol.
