There was a time when, to be a member of the Verve design department, you apparently had to be an LSD addict or smoke your mushrooms instead of eating them.
I have plenty of those boxed sets that this jolly group of far-out designers put together and many are totally impractical, sometimes with nearly illegible booklets and totally funky choices of box materials (rusty metal, anyone?).
But they did have something, those sets.
This one here collects all of Charlie Parker’s Verve Master takes on 4 CDs (2003) and after hating the design, like forever, today I’ve got it on display on my shelves.
How times change …
