  1. Norma Miller RIP

  2. How much overlap with these two volumes, 1995 & 2000 publications respectively??
  3. just got my email this morning & have ordered - can't get enough of Horace & the Arkestra/UGMAA
  4. Basil Kirchin's legendary Columbia LP, "Worlds within Worlds" has finally had a reissue via Trunk Records (run of 1600 LPs & no CD/digital version, ATS?) Jonny Trunk is a big fan of Basil & has access to his tape library - he has been releasing Basil's material (previously released & unreleased) over the years (LP & CD). This is one of BK's recordings I've been waiting for - lots of Evan Parker (ts & ss) plus Derek Bailey. The original Columbia LP sells for triple figures (thousands) - it's been hyped up the the "Diskaholiks" (Mats Gustafsson, Thurston Moore, Jim O'Rourke)
  5. Went for the 3LP set & very impressed by the SQ of these discs but couldn't resist digitalising them - perfect fit onto two CDr's Gotta be my release of the year The soprano track (A5) is stunning
  6. LPs that have never made it into CD

    The Australian Rufus label contains a lot of McGann material/CD releases. His other Emanem LP "Kindred Spirits" has been rereleased via Rufus.
  7. LPs that have never made it into CD

    One of Bernie's best but has never been released on CD. Lloyd Swanton (one of the Necks) originally financed the session & has the tapes.

  9. Sun Ra "Monorails and Satellites Vols. 1, 2 and 3"

    just received the 2CD set today - I presume it came with a booklet (unfortunately mine didn't) - all my other Cosmic Myth CDs have associated mini booklets the set was sealed & stickered - maybe it was never included? Anyone else had the same problem. Bought my copy from Import CDs - don't really want to return it (they have a bothersome return policy) can't seem to find any contact details for the label either
  10. Mick Jagger Illness

    If it's his aortic valve, he may not even require open heart surgery (chest cracked) - he may get a TAVI aortic valve (newish technology) where it's inserted via one of the femoral (leg) arteries - seats over the old valve which does not need to be removed.
  11. Scott Walker RIP

    Scott was very very very special to me - he never looked back & surfed that wave of progressiveness/avant garde right till the end. He never "sold out" IMHO. Wow!! he even had one of my jazz heroes, Evan Parker contribute to his 1983 LP "Climate of Hunter". RIP Scott
  12. Any *early* Pink Floyd fans? (67-72 era)

    Yep, big fan of the Syd Barrett years - lost interest after "Wish You Were Here". I've never actually listened to "The Wall" except for bits I've heard on the radio (not that impressed). "Interstellar Overdrive" is one of the great tracks of the 60s IMHO.
  13. Ah "Radio Birdman" (Aloha Steve & Danno) - now we're going back to the 70's & you cannot forget "The Saints" - both punk legends & predating the Sex Pistols, The Saints (remember "Stranded") originated from my home town, Brisbane & are all my vintage. Ed Kuepper (ex Saints, Laughing Clowns - now that's a great aussie band) moved back here quite a few years ago & is still very active on the music scene.
  14. Mary Halvorson - best place to start?

    I forgot about this post I made back in 2015 but I eventually met Mary (plus Sylvie Courvoisier) when they played to a handful of people at "The Owl" in Brooklyn back in September 2017. My partner & I sat at the very front & they both allowed me to take photographs during the performance. Also, it was a real buzz talking to both of them at the bar afterwards. Totally no shit/pretension from either. They were lovely.
