Julian Bream Edition (28 disc box set)-The Ultimate Guitar Collection
This box set was released in 1993 to coincide with the artist's 60th birthday. The collection included every solo recording ever released by Bream on RCA and most of the collaboration albums as well. All 37 LP recordings were remastered and reorganized into a 28 disc box set. Taking advantage of a compact disc's ability to hold a larger amount of music, the decision was made to reorganize the vast collection of selections by composers, musical periods and/or themes, often times placing older recording next to more recent ones. One striking omission are all 3 albums that were recorded on the label with John Williams. All other frequent collaborators such as Peter Pears, The Julian Bream Consort and George Malcolm were included in the box set.
