  1. Teddy Edwards, RIP

    Another sad loss He died just 6 days before his 79th birthday... (he was born on April 26, 1924)
  2. Has Planet Music Gone Away?

    You're absolutely right, Kevin. I stopped buying from them a long time ago, for the very same reason. I'm still wondering about JSP and Proper (both from the U.K.), though. Last year a usually reliable source in the U.K. told me that they were also ripping-off the remastering work done by Mosaic, Bear Family (Germany), etc., at least for some of their sets. Does anybody have info on that?
  3. Has Planet Music Gone Away?

    In my experience businesses that go under hardly ever notify their customers...

    Bingo! I've issued a restraining order against them - I don't want them near me...
  8. Sale at Zweitausendeins

    I assume these are all German "ZYX" pressings, or?

  10. eBay craziness... again

    I must be missing something here - I searched for seller "baylor" on eBay, and it turned out that he hadn't sold anything since March 2000...
  11. That'll be only a few billion years away...
  12. Importing to UK and Customs

    Ahhh... Victor... I really miss him

  15. Japanese reissues, due out May 21 and June 4

  16. Jutta Hipp died on Monday, April 7

    Well, I think it was a disgusting and utterly tasteless remark, like so many he made over the last few months. What a pity he doesn't stick to his jazz expertise.
  17. Japanese reissues, due out May 21 and June 4

    Hiroshi Tanno got me my copy, at a slightly higher price than Amazon's, but his shipping charge was much lower than theirs.
  18. Japanese reissues, due out May 21 and June 4

    The new reissue will be released in Japan on May 3. The older (1997) Japanese 20-bit K2 remastered reissue (Victor MVCR-20043) might still be available.
  19. Hi Alfred, Welcome to this board! I hope you'll enjoy it. Good luck with the Ellington set.
  20. JSP and Proper box sets

    Last year I got info from sources in the U.K. that JSP might have "taken advantage" of Mosaic, Bear Family and possibly Revenant remasters for some of their box sets (I'm not talking about the sets that were remastered by John R.T. Davies, of course) There was a discussion about this on "the old board", but unfortunately it didn't survive...
  21. Japanese reissues, due out May 21 and June 11

    That's a bargain, compared with the official Japanese list price of 2,500 yen (approximately $21 or €20)

  23. It's the quality that counts, not the quantity...
  24. New Album of the Week: Charles Mingus, Mingus x 5

    This is one of my all-time favorites, though I rate Mingus' The Black Saint and the Sinner Lady even higher. It's on its way to my CD player NOW.
  25. He's probably got too many albums to choose from
