Are these downsamples of the SACDs? The CD layer of the original hybrid discs? New remasters?

> For the first time, the legendary recording sessions the Oscar Peterson Trio
> made in the living room of the legendary German jazz label MPS founder Hans
> Georg Brunner-Schwer are released in an 8 CD box set. The collection
> combines six original releases with two collections of "Lost Tapes" released
> here for the first time. Painstakingly re-mastered, the analog atmosphere of
> the living room of the jazz-loving millionaire and record label owner is
> made palpable with these sessions that showcase the genius of Peterson in a
> rare performing environment. Included in the box set is a 60 page booklet
> containing interviews with Brunner-Schwer's son Andreas and the music
> journalist Siegfried Schmidt-Joos who provide first-hand insight into the
> atmosphere in Brunner-Schwer's Black Forest villa.
> 
> 
> 
> Down Beat (3/93, p.43) - 5 Stars - Excellent - "...Peterson responded to the
> setting, hospitality, and intimacy with what he would later describe as the
> best recordings he had ever made...[he] controls his vast technique at all
> times...simply brilliant..."
> 
> Musician (3/93, p.94) - "...the daunting improvs on standard melodies are
> downright robust...the master's Tatumesque rococoisms are offset by some
> Bud-like oomph, and thi set is all the more persuasive because of it..."
> 
> 
> 
> Personnel: Oscar Peterson (piano); Ray Brown, Sam Jones (bass); Ed Thigpen,
> Bobby Durham, Louis Hayes (drums).
> 
> Recorded in George Brunner-Schwer's private studio in Villingen, Germany
> between 1963 and 1968. Includes liner notes by Sigfried Schmidt-Joos and
> Baldur Bockhoff.
> 
> EXCLUSIVELY FOR MY FRIENDS contains the 6 LPs Oscar Peterson recorded for
> the German label MPS (Musik Produktion Schwarzwald). Three of the discs are
> trio recordings and one is of solo piano. The set includes a 32-page booklet
> with historic black and white photographs and a discography with pictures of
> the original album covers.
> 
> Oscar Peterson has stated that he feels his MPS recordings are his finest.
> That is quite a statement considering the huge amount of records that the
> pianist has produced through the past 50 years. This four-CD set reissues
> the music from six of his MPS LPs: Action, Girl Talk, The Way I Really Play,
> My Favorite Instrument, Mellow Mood, and Travelin' On. While some of the
> performances feature the 1963 trio he had with bassist Ray Brown and drummer
> Ed Thigpen, most of the music dates from 1967-1968 and matches Peterson with
> bassist Sam Jones and either Louis Hayes or Bobby Durham on drums. A special
> treat is Peterson's first unaccompanied solo album, which fills up the final
> CD. Peterson's many fans know what to expect in this set, while other
> listeners need to discover him to realize what all of the fuss was about.
> Quite simply, Oscar Peterson has long been one of the greatest pianists the
> world has ever known; this reissue offers plenty of proof. ~ Scott Yanow
