  1. The Nessa Juggernaut rolls on

    First, there will be a "bundle" offer for a shirt and Numbers 1 & 2 on the website soon. FWIW, the shirts are unisex, meant to be snug around the midsection. We are almost finished with the mix/edit of the new Roscoe - only one piece left. Pulling all the other stuff together has been a daunting task. I hope to have it available for Christmas, but am not certain. Watch this space.

    It was a Columbia set with the usual suspects. I lost mine in an early vinyl purge and ultimately bought another.

  6. Joe Fields RIP

    First met Joe in '67 or '68 while working for Discount Records in Chicago. Joe was a salesman for Prestige and was all excited about selling us overstocks/cheap pressings of the various Prestige labels. I think the price at that time was something like $.35 for our company. I remember taking him and "Rene" (anyone remember her) to a Braxton concert at the U of Chicago in the '70s. When he was first starting Muse he invited me to NY to discuss becoming a third partner with him and Schlitten. I declined. By the mid '80s I was involved in distributing Muse in the midwest and he spent a night in our house and he ate pancakes with the kids. He always seemed to view himself as a "sharp" businessman which meant "tight" or just plain cheap to a lot of artists. I always thought he was trying to be Bob Weinstock without Bob's love for the music. He wound up with a sizable recorded legacy. YMMV.

    Sorry I missed Pauls topic. Please merge them.

    I first met Joe in 1968 and have bunches of memories and opinions. I will be back later to expound.
  9. Mahler

    As many here know, I am a Horenstein fan top to bottom. I like some Klemperers, have an allergy for Kubelik and Boulez. My great friend Rafi Zabor keeps encouraging me to explore the late Abbado recordings from Lucerne. I prefer Horenstein's Mahler 1 with the VSO.

    August, 50th Anniversary release of Lester Bowie's "Numbers 1&2" now in house for the discerning collector wanting to hear the original program as edited for lp (on cd). A curates egg for sure, but I had to do it.

    Welcome. Fine recording.

    Every time I pull this off the shelf I know I am in for a couple of days with it.
  13. What Classical Music Are You Listening To?

    Is this the material issued on 2 Memoria discs in the '90s? They are terrific. Edit to say I discovered they are the same recordings. Terrific, as I said.
