SimonNZ:
The first thing I thought of when I saw the title of this thread was the Lighthouse album. If there's going to be an 8cd complete version its something I will seriously consider.

I'm another who doesn't see why the Sidewinder album gets all the attention, though his whole discography is consistantly strong.

His time with the jazz Messengers is my favorite / most played era of theirs.

Another recommendation here for the Search For The New Land album - it was the second thing I thought of when I saw the thread title.

High time I filled in some gaps in his sideman work that I've not yet heard.

Pohjolas Daughter:
I found out that a friend of mine has The Sidewinder on CD and also one called The Cooker (on either CD or LP--or knowing him, possibly on both!) and am told that I can borrow them.

Wondering how much added material that there will be to the Lighthouse set and whether it's worth it cost-wise or if better just to find a copy of the 3-CD one?

I'm undecided. 8 CDs is a lot, and many tunes are performed multiple times. OTOH, a similar Art Pepper (9 CD, https://www.amazon.com/Complete-Village-Vanguard-Sessions-CD/dp/B000000X90) release with heavy track duplication is one of my favorite box sets.

Nope, after the GMG brouhaha concerning a poster receiving unsolicited nasty PMs about "listening to s**t composers", I'm posting jazz listening only on jazz forums. Sticking to non-exotic classical on GMG. This particular subforum sees little activity in any case. I only posted the above to follow up on an existing topic.
