I imagine that these will be mastered from vinyl because of the EU 50-year copyright law, but that's not the worst thing in the world.

I'll be curious to see what's mono and what's stereo. The mono African Jazz blows away the stereo.

FWIW, there's an inexpensive 2-disc set called "Les Baxter - Four Classic Albums," containing South Pacific, African Jazz, Jungle Jazz, and Wild Guitars. It can be seen at musicmelon.co.uk under the Jazz titles. Packaging says "Digitally remastered and enhanced for superior quality." Not exactly sure what that means, but the recordings sound pretty good to me. Acquired mine at sirendisc.com.
