  1. On or Off? (a semi-Poll)

    Happened to me once. Fortunately, my telephone / fax machine was the only equipment that got roasted; my Mark Levinson amp shut down and wasn't damaged, and my CD transport / converter and electrostatic speakers were switched off...
  2. I'd be interested too, though an overseas subscription is a hefty $89.95 for 4 issues!
  3. Manuel de Falla

    By the way, isn't it De Falla? The only two De Falla discs in my collection are: Noches en los jardines de España (plus Isaac Albéniz: Rapsodia española; Joaquín Turina: Rapsodia sinfónica) - Alicia de Larrocha / London Philharmonic Orchestra / Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos Decca 410289 El amor brujo - Orchestre symphonique de Montréal / Charles Dutoit Noches en los jardines de España - Alicia de Larrocha / London Philharmonic Orchestra / Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos (plus Joaquín Rodrigo's Concierto de Aranjuez by the MSO / Dutoit) Decca 430703 Not much, I admit... Haven't played them for a long time, so I can't really comment.
  4. AAJ

    I was wondering about that, too...
  5. Happy Birthday Chuck!

    Happy birthday, Chuck.
  6. Billy Mitchell re-issues?

    I hope you're right... The tracklisting on the CDUniverse page indeed belongs to EmArcy MG 36043.

    Sonny Stitt's New York Jazz will be in the same June 10 batch as the Mitchell: http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?...996&Style=MUSIC, and so will be Cannonball Adderley's EmArcy sessions with strings: http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?...996&style=music and Lee Konitz' Motion (the single CD, not the triple album): http://www.cduniverse.com/productinfo.asp?...ic&frm=lk_jzmtz Just thought I'd mention it
  9. Help me choose 1 of 3

    The J.J. Johnson set is one of the best Mosaic sets in my opinion. Get it before it's too late!
  10. Billy Mitchell re-issues?

    Snap Your Fingers will be reissued by Verve later this year, at least according to Alan Lankin's Jazzmatazz site: http://home.att.net/~lankina/jazz/upcoming...s.html#upcoming

  13. Anyone heard the japanese import Beatles cds?

    One of my Japanese sources told me that they really are two release dates; you only see them on reissued Japanese discs. As far as I know these Beatles CDs are still available; I got them from Amazon Japan only a few months ago.
  14. Anyone heard the japanese import Beatles cds?

    The CDs were released on March 11, 1998.
  15. Bartok!!!

    Forgot to mention the Keller Quartet - Chuck is right, their Complete Quartets are great. I've edited my post.

  21. Roy Haynes - Birds Of A Feather

    $70?? Good grief How much are first row seats?
  22. New Okka Disks

    What is the title of the Mitchell and what label is it on? That Pinnock set has great "period" performances, though I always found the complete symphonies a bit much...
  23. New Okka Disks

    Any comments on the music, Chuck?
  24. RIP Robert Stack

    ...And thanks also for the unforgettable Untouchables!
