Bird was thirty four when he died, but according to the autopsy report he had the body of a man of over fifty. Verve Records, the label that Norman Granz launched at the end of began an ambitious reissue schedule of old Clef and Norgran titles in This series — along with The Charlie Parker Story 1, 2 and 3, was an early sign of the record industry capitalizing on the death of a legendary artist.
We often went to a coffee house at West 4th and Washington Square. A pigeon got [on] his head. You, Bird?! Bird loved cowboys and indians. Those were his shows. Gabby Hayes!

I own a bunch of vinyl Charlie Parker compilations and I've seen very many, but I don't have a single, original issue, full length standard lp by this artist nor can I remember hearing one. I was wondering what is the definitive, career-defining album by Charlie Parker?
Every artist has one of those records where if you're going to just get one, you get that one. For example, "Time Out" by Brubeck, etc. JazzPolice , Apr 3, Location: Dayton Ohio. This is my go to set, if you count compilations which they are all compilations, technically.
PacificOceanBlue , sgb , inaptitude and 2 others like this. Fidelity overall the same again maybe a bit brighter on the CD but the stereo effect on the CD comes across clearer.
I could live quite well with my vinyl but the CD is an improvement. Though I wonder whether this is the result of the present remastering or whether they "brightened up" an earlier reissue I picked up my Cecil Payne LP secondhand in London in the mids and remember that around that time this particular UK budget pressing was not exactly rare for a while there - as if quite a few collectors had dumped their copies at that time.
Was there a current CD reissue of that record out at that time? The liner notes say "completely remastered" though not by whom or where but overall I cannot see any really significant remastering improvement except for that overall ever so slightly brighter sound, no matter how that came about but OTOH no "deadening" of the overall sound either to my ears, at least not on those samples I compared.
So i for one can live with the results. The packaging is OK, sturdy and presentable, the booklet does not contain much info apart from the blurb on the CP label also found on their website, plus an essay on Charlie Parker and full track and session lineup details on all the contents. But hey Who am I who is anybody to complain about anything at that kind of money? And BTW, before this degenerates into another P.
If these are all false claims, good luck for the sequels this might lead to In short, yer pays yer money and yer takes yer chances Posted 27 Feb Thanks for the precis Mike. I'm not aware of an earlier cd release of Payne's "Plays the Music of Charlie Parker" before the '97 Collectables release, but there may have been an earlier one.
