  1. Why not list them here?
  2. Sounds great, Dan! Thank you so much.
  3. Hi! I will take it if you'll ship to Canada - thanks!
  4. All 3 Mosaic Commodore sets on Ebay

    That's a fantastic price! Was it a buy-it-now listing?
  5. Black Unity Trio – Al-Fatihah

    Bummed they shipped the record inside the sleeve. I hate unnecessary seam splits.
  6. Music related dreams

    I have a few music/record related dreams. The first two are recurring: In the first dream, I always stop by this elementary or high school to pick up incredibly rare jazz records that would have otherwise been thrown out. They leave them outside of the library for me. The second dream consists of a huge outdoor record show being held either down the street from my childhood home, or a few blocks south. I never seem to score as well in this dream. Last night, I had a new record related dream: my father and I were in Pittsburgh (for some reason), and we went to this record store that had a jazz section comprised entirely of Alan Silva's former collection. There were some great music biographies in there as well. I found one Alan Silva LP on Actuel for $5.49. I only had $5.00, so my pop had to cover the difference! Does anyone else have strange music related dreams?
  7. LF Richard Grossman CD

    Four copies from $10: https://www.discogs.com/sell/release/4516048?ev=rb
  8. That's fantastic, thanks so much for your help!
  9. A question for owners of this OOP box from Leo: http://www.leorecords.com/?m=select&id=CD_LR_801/808&ln=1 I found a copy of this on discogs, but the seller tells me he'll have to ship without jewel cases to keep the weight under a certain amount. No problem. He claims the jewel cases don't contain any paper inserts at all, which I find strange for such an otherwise lavish package. Can anyone who owns this please confirm the packaging? I can't find any pictures online. Thank you so much!
  10. Crazy sale at Leo Records

    What am I getting? Nothing. He charges £17.45 ($29.57 CAD) to ship every 4 CDs. That makes each disc cost $9 or so. Plus, I still have 50+ still-sealed things from past sales
  11. Is anyone holding? Paypal awaits. Thank you for reading!
  12. Just hit the 3-year mark on my search for this. Bump!
  13. Columbia House Wants to Return to Vinyl Roots

    new sales forum title?
  14. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I ordered directly from the label too - in late December. Still hasn't arrived. Apparently another will be sent to me. We'll see!
  15. 1.5 billion dollar lottery here in the US.

    The idea of playing and winning the lottery terrifies me. Playing the lottery goes against sound mathematical logic, and winning it would be a nightmare because greedy people would never leave you alone. It would change everything, and probably not for the better.
  16. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Yup, recently ordered it too. CAD to PNL was surprisingly affordable. The music, of course, sets the bar very high. Possibly the most engaging, honest, and beautiful sounds of 2015.
  17. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    Grabbed 'Candy' on discogs yesterday for $39 USD. Squidco seems to offer a cheap sealed copy once a week or so.
  18. FS: Jazz CDs, three lots

    Skirl CDs - $10 bundle Ches Smith & These Arches Endangered Blood Travis LaPlante Dirigo Rataplan (Eskelin & Ballou)
  19. Modern/Avant New Releases: A running thread

    I bought this album from Ingebrigt Haker Flaten last week when I saw Dave Rempis' Percussion Quartet. I'm listening to it now, and it's simply incredible. It's pulsing, driving, melodic jazz for 2015, and it's totally captivating and enjoyable.
  20. Posters and adverts in my files

    LOVE seeing stuff like this. Please keep scanning and posting, Chuck.
  21. GEMM.com ???

    I guess it was less than a year ago.. http://www.discogs.com/forum/thread/689690
  22. GEMM.com ???

    GEMM shut down a year ago or more. Wonder where ARCHDD will sell his nonexistent stock now?
  23. Questions: Trends in Jazz Vinyl Sales Circa 2015

    You're not Peter Dunn, are you? Nope! But I still come across his inner sleeves (riddled with bible quotes) and the odd LP with his stickers. His stores closed before I got seriously into records. I was too busy at Vortex, Sam's and A&A anyway.
  24. Questions: Trends in Jazz Vinyl Sales Circa 2015

    I'm still getting used to browsing LP racks next to women! Seriously, it's been such a male-dominated hobby for so long. Nice to see a broader section of the population getting excited over records. So what if they're playing them on some crappy Crosley turntable or just buying them to hang on their walls - to each their own. I'm the guy exchanging good money for free jazz records, so what do I know? I will say this though: if anything ever happened to my records (flood/fire/theft/etc.) I wouldn't start again. It would be financially impossible.
  25. Henry Grimes

    Wow, it looks interesting. How did you come across that?
