  1. The booklet gives and overview of each night/set and identifies particular performances which seemed to transcend others. There are also a couple of tunes that were played just once. I too had the same idea of paring it down to my own "set" and was going to use the recommendations in the liner notes as a starting point.
  2. FS- Yo Yo Ma Outside the Box (90 CD set)

    Bump for a price reduction to $250, which is very fair given what I've seen available elsewhere. This will be my only reduction. Thanks.
  3. Hi- I'm offering the Yo Yo Ma "Outside the Box" set for sale. Some CDs were played once to put into iTunes (small group/chamber stuff). The rest of the CDs are unplayed. The hardcover 300+ page book is unread. It is mint. The only issue is the split in the lower left of the box top. This is the way it arrived from Sony's early version of PopMarket. I requested a replacement top and as you can see/tell they never helped me out. I have pictures, but I'll be damned if I can figure out how to make the files small enough to be able to post them. I'm happy to send to any interested parties. The set weighs just under 14 lbs. Shipping will be at actual cost by the method of your choice. Here is the blurb from Amazon: A life's work in a box-a box almost as beautiful as the music within. Inside the case-made, velvet-lined, lift-off box are 90 CDs in mini-jackets with original cover art. The discs contain nothing less than the recorded history of Yo-Yo Ma: 88 CDs of albums (including 15 Grammy winners) plus two CDs of bonus tracks-all remastered with DSD technology. The sum total of the music defies categorization: Hush with Bobby McFerrin, Appalachian Walts and Appalachian Journey with Mark O'Connor and Edgar Meyer, his stunning tributes to the music of Brazil ( Obrigado Brazil and Obrigado Brazil Live in Concert ), his hit collaboration album Songs of Joy & Peace and on and on. The 312-page hardbound book boasts rare photos, essays, artist bios, track lists, original liners, a glowing foreword by Emanuel Ax and messages from Ted Kennedy, James Taylor, Alan Alda, Alison Krauss, Dave Brubeck, Wynton Marsalis and many other admirers. Each limited-edition box comes individually numbered with a letter of authenticity a truly magnificent release from a once-in-a-generation talent. Paypal is preferred, however, I will accept a personal check or bank check, although I will wait for it to clear before shipping. I'm asking $300. Thanks for looking. PS- I have a slew (20+) of other classical box sets. Primarily chamber music, some unopened. Please let me know if you have something you're looking for and I'll let you know.
  4. Jazz CD bargains

    I snagged one. Thanks for the tip.
  5. Mike thanks for being in touch. I will PM you.
  6. As a teenager I had about 40-50 albums. I knew all the tunes, the writers, producers, track lists, etc. Southern rock, Black Sabbath, Ted Nugent, Mountain, foghat, Dixie Dregs, and others. Fast forward forty years and I have more music that I can ever hope to absorb at that same level. Sometimes more than I can keep track of. Although I keep things filed alphabetically I still end up buying something that I already have about once a year. I was on a big Graham Collier kick a few years back. I tried it and I liked it so I got all of it that I could...then it was on to the next thing. It's nice to have so much to go back to, but unfortunate that there just isn't enough time to listen in and to really do so with justice. A recent upgrade of my system has me listening intently and with purpose more often once again. Otherwise I had fallen into a pattern of collecting followed by a cursory listen or even worse...relegating new stuff to background music waiting for something to jump out and grab me. It used to be the other way around. Sigh.
  7. I'd have to revisit it. I have all of the Collier BGO titles and I don't recall their being a clunker in the bunch. I enjoy that stuff that straddles being in/out. I'll have to listen again soon.
  8. I downloaded the BGO title from iTunes. Graham Collier as I recall was involved with putting the music up on that platform. It was a "three-fer" that also includes "Portraits" and "The Alternate Mosaic." Since I already purchased it iTunes won't tell me the price, but it was certainly much better than the prices of the physical CD on the secondary market. I too would prefer the CD as some point, but my wallet won out as the voice of reason because I'm not typically a downloader.
  9. Who was selling a Gentle Giant box set here?

    'Twas I. I had a number of classical boxes listed as well. PM me for details if you're still interested...I'm on the cusp. I didn't import the live stuff, but I think that I will if I choose to sell.
  10. Jazz CD bargains

    This is pretty much the same list as last year. I ended buying a dozen or more discs and paying $30 in shipping. I enjoyed the music but not the exorbitant shipping charge. I see that DD says he can address that this year.
  11. Mayall Box Set Video The video put me over the top. Lavish? Yup. Expensive? Yup. Lots and lots of listening enjoyment to be had? Yup. Import CDs Link
  12. LF- Masada CDs

    Great news. Thanks. If you'd like to PM me with the particulars that would be wonderful. I'm very excited. I also happen to have a stockpile of empty jewel cases from my days in retail music, so if you send along a jewel case in need of replacement I can take care of it. Thanks again! James

    Isn't that the truth...
