Little Walter Boxed Set!

This weekend I was looking through some CD's that a guy had
for sale at the Santa Cruz Blues Festival when I came across
a Little Walter boxed set.  Well, I promply gave him all of
my money and snatched it up.  He told me that he had to have
them brought in from England.  The set contains 4 CD's with
95 tracks which "represents all the available Little Walter
recordings on Chess from 1952-1963".  It comes with a 40 page
booklet about his life.   On the box it says that these are
the original Checker recordings licensed from Charly Records
courtesy of Red Dog Express Inc.  Has anyone else heard about
other compilations such as this?  What other good stuff like
this is available out there?  I noticed that the guy also had a
nine CD set of Muddy Waters stuff as well.  It's a shame that
such treasures are not more readily available.
