Deluxe 3CD collector’s edition featuring 73 tracks, including three complete albums. Comprehensive booklet with new and updated liner notes and memorabilia.

Ranging from 1955 to 1961, the sessions include the complete contents of the classic albums “For Those in Love” (Emarcy MG-36011), “I Wanna Be Loved” (Mercury SR-60729), and “The Swingin’ Miss “D”” (EmArcy MG-36104), along with various other tunes issued on singles.
