Extra notes on cover, middle (gatefold sleeve) and any inserts

These albums continue a new era in the appreciation of the classic performances of yesteryear. Robert Parker's digical transfer techniques are used to revitalise the sound from direct-cut 78 RPM discs, made more than half-a-century ago. The results give a clean stereo impression of the stars jazz and popular music in live performance.
