Charlie Parker Boxed Sets

The Charlie Parker discography on this site contains listings for CDs almost exclusively, and in the "issues" section of the session listings I have concentrated on the more-or-less readily available sources, so these are far from discographically complete. Many of Parker's studio recordings (for Dial, Savoy, and Emarcy/Clef/Mercury) were originally issued on 78s and/or 45s and/or 10" LPs, and only later on 12" LPs; and much of his "live and unissued" work was originally issued on privately-pressed LPs aimed at collectors. Since pre-LP versions are not readily available, and the LPs themselves are out of print, I have focused on the CD reissues of this material. Even here you have several alternatives:

Dial Recordings
Savoy Recordings
Verve Recordings
Other Collections
Live Recordings
