The original LPs are featured two per CD in chronological order. Produced by Bob Fisher whose detailed essay covers the entire history of Mose Allison's career with quotes and endorsements from artists like Elvis Costello, Bonnie Raitt, Pete Townshend, Georgie Fame, Van Morrison and many others who were inspired by his music.

Designed by Michael Robson and mastered by Simon Murphy this is the definitive collection of this period of Mose Allison's career.

I have eight.  I guess I'll wait until I see the price.

This is welcome news! I was just wondering the other day about how to procure all of Allison's Atlantics.

Importcds has it for $38 + $3 shipping (for a 6 CD set!).  They are always much better pricewise than Amazon on anything from the Cherry Red family of labels (which this release is).  Everything on those labels is usually beautifully executed and incredibly reasonably priced.  And they are all fully licensed, no PD worries.

I've had some bad luck with that outfit so I don't order from them any longer.

Sorry to hear that.  I've bought many hundreds of CD's from them and have been fine.

I have only one of the Prestige albums, and not a single one of the Atlantic or Elektra albums, so this is welcome. Offered for 47 € over here.

The Prestiges are all on this great Fresh Sound set:

Then there was an excellent sounding 3 CD set with the Columbias (which I have):

... then follow the Atlantics. Time to complete my man Mose.

Thanks, Lon.  We'll see how long that lasts.

Thanks, John!  Now we're getting closer!

I pre-ordred a copy, along with the Prestige box from Fresh Sound. The latter is oop at the label, but JPC got me one from the German distributor. I feel lucky.

Listening to the Hi Jinks Columbia box right now. Mose was a groovy musician.
