The Decca Sound - 50 CD Box Set

Each CD is presented in a sleeve with original cover art. Where an original
release may have been of short duration due to limitations of the LP a bonus
work featuring the same artists has been added. A 200-page booklet documents the
development of stereo recording as it developed in the 1950s through to modern
digital recordings; there is an article on Decca artists and repertory with
particular reference to the artists featured in the set. Full recording
information on each disc is included and there are numerous photographs.
