With his odd rhythmic spacing, discordant resolves and his circular yet angular compositional style, Thelonious Monk remains one of the most singular figures in all of jazz, and virtually every one of his recordings is as enigmatic as the pianist himself was. This set combines his five albums for Columbia Records, 1962's Criss Cross and Monk's Dream, 1964's Solo Monk, 1966's Straight, No Chaser, and 1967's Underground, in a single package, and anyone thinking Monk wasn't as vital during those years really needs to hear this stuff. It's classic Monk, and this collection is a great way to get it in a single swoop.
EU three CD set containing a trio of original albums from the AOR/Melodic Rock greats: Departure (1980), Escape (1981) and Frontiers (1983).

Departure features the hit 'Any Way You Want It', which really kickstarted their ascension to the upper reaches of the charts. Escape features the hits 'Don't Stop Believing', 'Who's Crying Now' and the mega hit 'Open Arms'. Frontiers includes the hits 'Separate Ways (Worlds Apart)', 'Send Her My Love' and 'Faithfully'.
