with 20 comments

And the (complete) hits just keep on comin’.  Sony’s PopMarket site has become a must-visit destination for many music fans, not only due to daily deals on existing box sets and back catalogue titles but also due to a line of new boxes under the Complete Albums Collection umbrella.  Initial recipients of this treatment were Sam Cooke, The Byrds. Stan Getz and Return to Forever.  A second wave offered collections from John Denver, Grover Washington Jr., Kansas and Wayne Shorter.  Another eight titles have recently been announced, and like their predecessors, these offer an artist’s complete albums from a particular period or label affiliation in mini-LP sleeves with an accompanying booklet, all housed in one tidy package.  The latest group encompasses some all-time greats of rock, soul and jazz.  PopMarket is  now offering:

  • Earth Wind & Fire: The Complete Columbia Masters Collection;
  • Electric Light Orchestra: The Classic Albums Collection;
  • Leonard Cohen: The Complete Albums Collection and The Complete Studio Albums Collection;
  • Paul Desmond: The Complete RCA Albums Collection;
  • Dexter Gordon: The Complete Columbia Albums Collection;
  • Wynton Marsalis: Swingin’ into the 21st;
  • Woody Shaw: The Complete Columbia Albums Collection; and
  • Nina Simone: The Complete RCA Albums Collection.
