The restoration work is superb, all three recently released Blu-Ray sets have full video and sound restoration. Starting with the earliest sound releases in 1929 after Hal Roach switched from Pathes to MGM for distribution, these B&W two reel shorts come alive in an almost uncanny surreal sense. Some of these look as though they could've been filmed this year sans color.
You don't even have to be a fan of the "Little Rascals" Our Gang comedies to enjoy the humor and appreciate the work done to preserve these ancient often clever films, you'll still look at them in awe and wonder. The first three volumes are available covering 1929-32, each averaging between three and four hours of shorts and extras including comparisons of restored and unrestored footage. Truly amazing.

Laurel and Hardy too.
Great stuff, Authentic Style, good sound.
My Conn Bari sax is from 1936, so it's not a Huge Stretch!
. . . performing Boulez's "Le marteau sans maitre" on the "original instruments" (of 1955!). ;-)
We are talking about "Le marteau sans maitre" now - and not the Little Rascals? ;-)
Actually, I've never seen any score by Boulez that didn't look "insanely difficult"! ;-)
I certainly approve of that "period" saxophone vibrato!
