About this copy: This copy of The Verve Collectors’ Item is a 1983 Japanese pressing on the Verve label.

The box is VG, with a fair amount of edge wear, but no splits.  The obi is VG++, with a bit of foxing, but no tears.  The insert is VG++, with slight foxing.

The four discs are M- and look unplayed.  Beautiful set.

A nice collection of classic Jazz.

Background: We don’t know much about The Verve Collectors’ Item.  It was released in Japan in 1983 and as far as we know, the 4 LP box set was not released anywhere else.

It’s a collection of pretty much every major artist who recorded for Verve in the 1950s.
