89 song 4 CD French import boxed set. 89 tracks, issued in a fold open book style case (5-1/2" x 10"), with a large informative booklet. This is a must-have for the true fan. A great retrospective contained in a first-class package. I play this often when I feel like listening to some old-school Wailers music. Very rare and good compilation of marley's music. Hard to find. Not sold anymore. Discontinued 4 cd set.
This collection on the U.K.'s Soul Brother imprint is a very compelling look at a big slice of Freddie Hubbard's long career as a leader, and one that gets ignored for the most part.

It didn't matter to Hubbard, however, because at the time, these were among his best-selling albums and connected with the public deeply.

Since then they have sold records all around the world. They are continually being "discovered" by music fans with the help of the Internet and their web site as well as conventional means.
Night Time Is the Right Time is a two-disc collection of 36 gems recorded by R&B singer Nappy Brown. With one foot grounded in the blues and the other stepping toward soul, Brown's mid- to late-'50s recordings are exciting and impressive. The first disc, with classics like "Don't Be Angry," "That Man," and "Two-Faced Woman (And a Lyin' Man)," is probably the best. …
