Chronological Classics Complete Discography
Chronological Classics was a French compact disc reissue label. The original owner Gilles Pétard intended to release the complete master takes of all jazz and swing artists that were issued on 78 rpm records. By the time the label suspended operations in July 2008, its scope had extended into the LP era.
Pétard also started a parallel label, R&B Classics, whose releases follow on from the jazz listing, to reissue postwar rhythm & blues recordings. An unaffiliated label, Neatworks, released alternate takes and misidentified master takes of jazz artists previously issued on Chronological Classics. In 1999, Chronological Classics also issued a CD set that included tracks previously not available in the regular series, and a bonus cd with corrected tracks from previous releases.
The jazz series started with number 500, and so far includes the following albums:

Famous quotes containing the words complete and/or classics:
“A complete woman is probably not a very admirable creature. She is manipulative, uses other people to get her own way, and works within whatever system she is in.”
—Anita Brookner (b. 1938)
“The fact is, the public make use of the classics of a country as a means of checking the progress of Art. They degrade the classics into authorities. They use them as bludgeons for preventing the free expression of Beauty in new forms.”
—Oscar Wilde (18541900)
