The difference between them is that Bear Family is a legit reissue label
whereas Proper lifts their releases from others, including Bear Family!

Subject: [ARSCLIST] Proper CD boxes
I have just bought some fine CD box sets from the label Proper. They are
almost like Bear Familys but in smaller format. Many interesting titles at a
very special low price.
I found releases by The Hoosier Hot Shots, early jazz rarities, country and
boogie music recordings from 78's and so on!
What do you think about those Proper releases?
