For a Glass fan, this souvenir CD set is mouth-wateringly good! For others, who are interested in Glass's music, then this is an ideal way of obtaining some of his greatest works at a budget price compared to purchasing the CDs individually. The book is the icing on the cake! Naqoyqatsi - Philip Glass - The Complete Sony Recordings (CD) box sets lack the background information, sleeve notes, librettos, photographs and other details that enrich the experience of purchasing CDs.
However, this book has the original background notes, synopsis and librettos for all the operas and this is highly commendable. For the rest of the music the book contains the sleeve notes. The CDs are all in cardboard sleeves which have the original artwork from the album covers. I have provided the dates of the recordings. There are 15 separate sleeves or albums- 1 Glassworks This sleeve contains 3 CDs. The first CD is the original recording and the second CD is a special remix which was done for compact cassette players Sony Walkman which were the 's equivalent of a MP3 player.
I couldn't detect any difference in the sound between these but the tape was supposed to suit Naqoyqatsi - Philip Glass - The Complete Sony Recordings (CD) via headphones.
The third CD is an interview with Philip Glass who discusses Glassworks and is interspersed with clips from the album.
Glass deliberately aimed this album towards a wider audience and I think that it is timeless and poignant. Part V Naqoyqatsi - Philip Glass - The Complete Sony Recordings (CD) Philip Glass 7.
