  1. went to Amazon site via link but getting "This title is not currently available for purchase" - maybe it has something to do with an out of US customer (I'm in Australia). Anyone from the states having the same issue?? I can't even get into the "sample' info
  2. IMHO it looks like the Benny Golson/Art Farmer Jazztet etc box
  3. Black Saint / Soul Note Box Set Sale

    So is this the end of the line for these wonderful box sets - 45 AFAI can ascertain I was hoping for so many more
  4. Norma Miller RIP

    Wow!!!!
  5. How much overlap with these two volumes, 1995 & 2000 publications respectively??
  6. just got my email this morning & have ordered - can't get enough of Horace & the Arkestra/UGMAA
  7. 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?) https://trunkrecords.greedbag.com/buy/worlds-within-worlds-parts-one-a/ 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)
  8. 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
  9. 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. http://www.rufusrecords.com.au/artists/mcgann.html
  10. 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.

  12. 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
  13. 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.
