The most precious music costs next to nothing

I don't know where Desert Island Discs stand on boxed sets but I'd be quite happy to spend eternity with the four CDs in this set.

It does pretty much everything I would want music to do. And it costs buttons.

Masterpieces: 1926-1949 (4CD)


  1. Absolutely! Duke is my no. 1 musical hero and this collection captures a fine selection of music, from his 1940 peak to his under-rated late '40s period.

  2. Coincidentally I bought this exact same box set about 6 months ago. Utter genius. He wrote more great songs than absolutely anybody.
