The Original Album Classics series by Germany's Sony/BMG is an attempt to clear shelves of catalog titles that are lying about, but it inadvertently provides a great opportunity to those who have developed a sincere interest in an act via a greatest-hits comp but have yet to score any actual titles. These budget-priced completely remastered collections feature full-length album classics -- in this case five "time"-themed albums by the Dave Brubeck Quartet beginning with the classic 1959 album Time Out and ending with 1966's Time In. In between are Time Further Out (1961), Countdown: Time in Outer Space (1962), and Time Changes (1964). Hardcore Brubeck fans already have these, no doubt. That said, this is a grand place to get started. These recordings all contain bonus material. ~ Thom Jurek
