Our take :
Although there is currently a limited catalogue, and the records are not deluxe issues(standard vinyl and simple packaging) you have here the opportunity to get some of the best jazz music recorded and mastered by some of the best names in the business, such as Rudy van Gelder, Steve Hoffman and Kevin gray. Not all releases but on some. As well as the Credence compilation you also have the new release by John Fogerty which is classic Credence territory and although most likely a digital source sounds pretty good. The records are all modestly priced too. Definitely worth checking out.
