  1. The Grateful Dead Dark Star

    Ordered with ease for a change...absent were the problems which plagued earlier box set releases. !5,000 copies takes the edge off as well. I'm a little light on '73-74 stuff. Looking forward to this one.
  2. Amazon recommended these titles to me. They appear to be on the Phono label...which I guess is one the the European labels which finds little love here. They boast 24 bit remastering and booklets. I'm very interested. Thoughts? Joe's Blues Featuring Grant Green Featuring Les Spann & Mundell Lowe "Blue Hodge" "Mess of Blues" Featuring Kenny Burrell "Con Soul Jazz" & "Wild Bill is the Boss"
  3. PM sent on Music of Islam box.
  4. Wishbone Ash The Vintage Years

    They've become a favorite of mine. Trying to patch their stuff together was tough with so much stuff out of print. After this I need look no further. Best price I found was $339 with free shipping and no tax through PopMarket. This is from the website: Website Wishbone Ash's The Vintage Years 1970-1991 is a strictly limited deluxe 30 CD box set. Authorised by all of the original band members, this beautifully packaged tribute to one of Britain’s finest Rock bands is loaded with rarities and memorabilia, and includes a lavish 156-page hardback book written by Classic Rock's Dave Ling. A third of the collection features previously unheard and unreleased material. Strictly limited to 2500 copies, all discs have been remastered. Along with copious extras - posters, poster book, 7" single and more - the set includes individually signed photos of each band member. Released on Madfish, the label behind the award-winning Family, Steve Hillage and Small Faces box sets. **This boxset will be shipped by courier. Save on postage costs by ordering anything else separately** --------- Founding member Martin Turner says, “We decided to give it all to the wonderful Pete Reynolds whom I believe has done a brilliant job of mixing and remastering a massive collection of work. It’s almost like having one’s whole musical life in one box. It certainly represents the most comprehensive Wishbone collection that I know of and I hope you enjoy it." Andy Powell adds, "It’s truly amazing to look back at the musically fertile 1970s and 1980s and wonder at the sheer amount of incredible creative output from our band. We had great roots and a really strong blueprint for success. I feel blessed to have played my part in it all and I’m truly thankful that it’s set the course for my entire life and all the music that’s followed, as the band continues to live on into the 21st century.” --------- The contents of The Vintage Years box set include: * Brand new cover artwork designed by Colin Elgie, the designer of the award-winning Live Dates sleeve artwork. * All 16 studio albums, featuring bonus material including rare album outtakes, B-sides and 12 previously unreleased studio tracks, presented in mini-gatefold sleeves (three of the albums are currently out of print, Nouveau Calls, Here to Hear and Strange Affair). * 8 previously unreleased live albums from 1973-1980 on 11 discs: 1. Portsmouth Guildhall 1973 (2CD) from the Wishbone Four / Live Dates tour 2. Southampton University 1973 from the Wishbone Four / Live Dates tour 3. Edinburgh Usher Hall 1976 from the New England tour 4. Marquee Club 1977 from the Front Page News tour 5. Newcastle City Hall 1977 from the Front Page News tour 6. Bournemouth Winter Gardens 1978 (2CD) from the No Smoke Without Fire tour 7. Guildford Civic Hall 1980 (2CD) from the Just Testing tour 8. Chelmsford Odeon 1980 from the Blowin' Free tour * 3 original live albums: Live Dates, Live Dates Volume Two and Live in Tokyo. * All music has been remastered from the original multitrack and ¼" tapes, sourced from Martin Turner and Andy Powell's personal collections, and from the Universal Music and Atlantic archives. * A 156-page hardback book written by Classic Rock's Dave Ling, including personal photos, rare posters and flyers, a 2017 interview and collector's memorabilia. * A 36-page poster book, covering the early years through to Here to Hear. * 4 reproductions of original posters: Christmas at the Palace Dec 1973 Live Dates European tour – Hamburg Musikhalle 1974 Europe 1975 tour The Front Page News tour – Empire Pool Wembley 1977. * A facsimile MCA debut album promo pack. * A 7" flexi disc for the single Blind Eye, the first of the 11 Japanese singles series. * Individually signed photos of each band member.
  5. Where is this list posted? I can't seem to locate it. Thanks.
  6. New Verve box sets

    I don't have a lot of Armstrong so at first glimpse this seems worthwhile. I'm ok with a few alternates, etc. at the end of discs 1-3 but disc four holds zero interest. For completists only...?

  7. FB post from my brother in law

    I occasionally buy lottery tickets as gifts, and as one who charges almost everything to enjoy rewards points, I came learn that here in New York state they are a cash only purchase.
  8. FS- Blue Notes "The Ogun Collection"

    Hi- I apologize for not updating this post but this item has sold. Sorry.
  9. Amazon says "Holland." I'm not sure if I should spring for this set or get the two five-CD classic album sets. Forty bucks vs. ninety. How much Weather Report do I need? I have "Weather Report" and I find it interesting having just revisited it. I'm interested to know if the new set includes a book or expanded CD liner notes.
  10. It is listed on backorder for $93.59 at importcds.com.
  11. Box set it now showing as unavailable on Amazon. Gone is the release date of 11/3 info and the price of $89.99. Hmmm...
  12. The Grateful Dead Dark Star

    I buy myself the Dave's Picks subscription for Christmas every year. It is the sure-fire way to be sure you don't get closed out of any of the titles, particularly given how unreliable the website is during times of high traffic/demand. So far I have found the series to be good. I tend to go for up to around '77 or '78 but I've been revisiting the Branford show from Spring '90 and I think I might have a burgeoning interest in some of the later stuff...although I'm not sure that I'll ever warm up to the stuff that features Brent on lead vocals.
  13. Undoing "Forum Marked as Read"

    Yes, it did in fact reset it for me. Thanks!
  14. Undoing "Forum Marked as Read"

    Yesterday morning I inadvertently marked the Mosaic and other Box Set thread as "read." It is now shaded out and I can't seem to figure out how to undo this action. Compounding my confusion is the fact that it appears as though there has been no activity on this thread since 6:07 AM yesterday...which seems weird. It seems unlikely that no one has posted in this thread or any of its sub-threads in the last 30 hours. Will this thread return to normal when someone posts to it? Thanks for your help.
  15. $88 Opened but played just once. Everything is excellent/mint. Ships free w/delivery confirmation in the continental 48. Paypal or Amazon gift card.
