Well, I stumbled upon this box at my local record store, and I couldn't pass it up for $20. I'm relatively new to Django, so to me, this set serves as an extensive introduction to his music. I think the sound quality is excellent for 50 year old recordings, although I would be interested to hear what more experienced Django-philes think about it. There are some songs with more than one version included, which I normally dislike on compilations. Here, however, the repeated versions are usually completely different interpretations of the same composition. Curiously, I have never seen Volume 1. Anyway, lot's of Djang for the buck!
