  1. Giant Steps at 60.

    - Disc 1 - 1 Giant Steps (2020 Remaster) 2 Cousin Mary (2020 Remaster) 3 Countdown (2020 Remaster) 4 Spiral (2020 Remaster) 5 Syeeda's Song Flute (2020 Remaster) 6 Naima (2020 Remaster) 7 Mr. P.C. (2020 Remaster) - Disc 2 - 1 Giant Steps (Alternate, Take 1, Incomplete) [2020 Remaster] 2 Naima (Alternate, Take 3) [2020 Remaster] 3 Like Sonny (Alternate, Take 7) [2020 Remaster] 4 Countdown (Alternate Take) [2020 Remaster] 5 Syeeda's Song Flute (Alternate Take) [2020 Remaster] 6 Cousin Mary (Alternate Take) [2020 Remaster] 7 Giant Steps (Alternate, Take 5) [2020 Remaster] 8 Giant Steps (Take 6, Alternate) [2020 Remaster] I'm pretty sure all of these titles on Disc 2 are included in the Heavyweight Champion box set
  2. Mosaic partials ...

    I'm looking for discs 1 & 2 from the Giuffre Mosaic set (176) plus disc 2 from the Capitol Mosaic box (170) I do have CDrs of the missing discs but it would be nice to complete these sets
  3. New Corbett v Dempsey

    I thought that was the case with many/most of the original Actuel releases
  4. Shorty Rogers Mosaic At Last!

    That's good news jazzkrow BTW I could have done with a Rogers booklet - I only have CDrs of the set plus a photocopied booklet - a boardmember here kindly ripped their set for me a few years ago. I've been looking to source a set for years but they've always been out of my price range (too expensive IMHO). They were already OOP when I started buying mosaics in the early/mid 90s. I think the cost of shipping to australia would be ridiculous so I'm happy to stick with my photocopy version
  5. Jacques Coursil (1938-2020)

    Yep!!
  6. Jacques Coursil (1938-2020)

    The Jason Weiss text "Always In Trouble - An Oral History of ESP-Disk" has a chapter dedicated to Jacques - mostly an interesting interview with him
  7. +1 for a 40s Byas set - love his work check this recent link re Byas 40s recordings https://jazzlives.wordpress.com/2020/06/20/a-magical-session-in-jam-june-27-1945/ sadly the Thompson Mosaic Select was scuppered a few years back but a "big box" Lucky set would also be one of my dream releases
  8. Essential John Gilmore?

    also Elmo Hope - Sounds from Rikers Island McCoy Tyner - Today & Tomorrow
  9. Wow!!! I'll just have to settle for his autograph (Brisbane, Australia 1965 tour) - no, I didn't see him (was a bit young)
  10. I suggested a Freddie Roach Mosaic Select (5 BN releases would have been perfect for a Select) to Michael C back in the 2000s - his reply was "it wouldn't sell"
  11. LF- Masada CDs

  12. New Corbett v Dempsey

    just ordered new Ra & Kowald plus the recent Graves (Babi) & Pukwana (Yi Yole) love the CvsD covers (mini LPs) - so much better than those horrid plastic jewel cases
  13. Shorty Rogers Mosaic At Last!

    here you go - Discogs has someone selling the box & booklet only, both in VG+ condition - I just happened to look yesterday & was wondering what happened to the CDs or LPs your lucky day jazzkrow https://www.discogs.com/sell/item/1135315550
  14. In Australia these Sun Ra box sets came on the market earlier (due to COVID) than the RSD date - I bought a copy (online/mail order) from a record shop in Melbourne in early August. I actually thought there were 3000 copies/boxes pressed?
  15. Can't order from Amazon UK here in Australia anymore but can still buy from Amazon US though (no good in this situation) - amazingly I was able to place an order via Amazon Australia - we'll see what transpires
