  1. just tried to preorder this from Australia & get this message (see below) - even though it states on the page that this item can be delivered to Australia Of course the new-ish Australian Amazon site does not list it at all. So it looks like people in the states can order via the UK Amazon site? What gives?? We are unable to ship non-digital items from amazon.co.uk to Australian shipping addresses. Please choose a shipping address that is not in Australia to proceed. Some restrictions may still apply depending on the item.
  2. Mosaics you’re still on the hunt for

    That's exactly what I did but was unable to make comparisons with the Mosaic set (didn't have it) then upgraded to the Japanese SHM-CD's - all the titles from the Mosaic set have been SHM'd.
  3. RIP Nick one of my fav reads of his which I picked up back in the early 90s (seems like yesterday) is "Unsung Heroes of Rock 'n' Roll"
  4. Black & Blue Records - CD Offer

    Tommy, sent you a request for three Fresh Sound Twofers for Australia - Horn, Moer & Hampton Any comments on the Paul Moer set from our members - that tribute to Elmo Hope he did in 1991 looks very interesting Want the Hampton set for all of the previously unreleased live Birdland material Cheers Stephen
  5. Dire sound quality of C. Baker Prestige reissues

    They sold truckloads of those digipaks here in Australia at the time, many ending up on the throwout/el cheapo tables - must have been a dumping ground down here
  6. will stick with my 20bit K2s what about the Riverside "CB introduces Johnny Pace"
  7. William Donati

    & a Velvet Underground one too!!
  8. Jazz musicians who became expatriates

    has anyone mentioned Nathan Davis?
  9. What's next for Mosaic

    Here's the first three Bourbon St sessions from Lord (online) - having to do small bits at a time as it's a bit tricky trying to get the files under 100KB next 3 last 3
  10. What's next for Mosaic

    The online Lord Discography has all the session info for the Mosaic release (269) already up there - Wow!! that was fast - and it hasn't even been released yet
  11. ***** Jimmie Lunceford Corner *****

    Received the French CBS 4LP box set yesterday - picked it up for a song (only bidder on Ebay - the shipping cost more, though not much - pretty good for 4LP box set from UK to Australia) Spent the day digitalising it - 73 tracks (3hrs, 23 mins) - fits nicely onto 3 CDrs - there are 9 alternate takes (not on Classics CDs) plus 1 alternate version (may be on Classics?) SQ is very nice (to my ears) - IMHO this set is up there with the Mosaic Decca set though the booklet is nowhere as detailed/informative
  12. Booker Ervin

    wow!!!!! what a lineup - somewhere in Europe I presume
  13. Charles Tolliver All-Stars vinyl and CD reissue

    The CD version still not showing up on import CDs (only vinyl at this stage!!) I'll probably add my copy to the upcoming Mobley Mosaic - that will absorb the shipping cost (if it doesnt take it into a higher category) Shipping costs to the US & UK from Australia are also abysmal - still reasonable to/from europe
  14. Black Saint / Soul Note Box Set Sale

    many thanks down here (Australia) too - 4 sets made their way safely to our shores
  15. Art Blakey 3/8/59 Unreleased Blue Note Sess

    Thanks for the tip - was able to download the whole session (over 2 hours of master & alternate takes) as MP3's from you tube. The chatter before, after & during the various takes is a bonus for me (hear very little of that on official released material). Lee is on fire here. Enjoying this......
