  1. Thanks for your input! Incidentally, my copy of "Sweet Rain" is pressed in Germany (as many other Verve titles from that era in the racks over here) and also sounds very good. But apparently not all titles came out in Germany back in the day (or at least weren't pressed there).
  2. There are a few Verve albums I'm looking for, and some of them are easier to find in the UK. Surprisingly, I own almost no UK Verve pressings. How were they, quality-wise, in the 60s compared to the US pressings? (Sidewinder, I'm looking at you. )
  3. LPs that have never made it into CD

    I once asked Jonathan Horwich, when he was somewhat active on this forum, whether he still had the rights to the Revelation material, but I didn't get a response (though he was helpful in another matter).
  4. LPs that have never made it into CD

    Agree! I would really have loved to see the whole McFarland concert! I've only recently begun to discover Tjader. Can't believe how I could have dismissed him for so many years! I guess I thought he was kinda into the easy listening "fake" latin genre. I was mistaken... The albums above are also interesting in that they are among very few sideman appearances by Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock that have not been reissued on CD.
  5. LPs that have never made it into CD

    Browsing through this thread, it is interesting to note that a number of the albums listed have actually been issued on CD since. These days, maybe we should have a new thread for CDs not available for streaming... Anyway, these are albums that come to mind as not having been out in a digital format: Gary McFarland 'Profiles' (Impulse, 1966) Cal Tjader 'Hip Vibrations' (Verve, 1967) Cal Tjader 'Along Comes Cal' (Verve, 1967) Shelly Manne 'Outside' (Contemporary,1970) Martial Solal 'Trio' (Columbia, 1965) Martial Solal 'Son 66' (Columbia,1966) Martial Solal 'En direct du Blue Note' (Columbia, 1966): also release as 'On Home Ground' on Milestone ... and then some ten Clare Fisher albums on Revelation (indeed most or even all of the Revelation catalog)
  6. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    I have 'Dippin' on vinyl from Analogue Productions, which supposedly is remastered from the original tapes. I checked "Recado...", and it starts with a single bass note right on the first beat, i.e. not on the upbeat.
  7. Your audio equipment?

    TD-125 is a very nice turntable - I've got one myself. 🙂 What arm and cartridge do you have on it?
  8. COVID-19 III: No Politics For Thee

    This is what the European Centre for Desease Prevention and Control says: https://www.ecdc.europa.eu/en/covid-19/facts/questions-answers-school-transmission 4. Do schools spread the virus to the wider community? Available evidence suggests that transmission among children in schools is less efficient for COVID-19 than for other respiratory viruses such as influenza. However, this evidence is mainly derived from school outbreaks and relies on the detection of symptomatic cases, possibly underestimating the number of infected, asymptomatic, and potentially infectious, children during such an outbreak. In summary, where COVID-19 in children has been detected and contacts followed-up, no adult contacts in school settings have been detected as COVID-19-positive during the follow-up period. The conclusion from these investigations is that children in school settings are not the primary drivers of COVID-19 transmission to adults."
  9. Your audio equipment?

    I have active tube driven speakers from the 60s. The tubes can hardly be seen, but they sound nice. And the wooden cabinets smell nice from the heat after a couple of hours. 😄 Will probably not change them for a while; I am also out of upgrading by now. Tubes glowing inside the cabinet. There are four cone tweeters and an 8 inch midrange on the top and a 10 inch woofer in the bottom (behind the tube amp).
  10. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    It's unfortunate that 'If Ever I Would Leave You' from the CD version had to be left out (LP playing time constrictions...?) since it was a very fitting opening track for that album.
  11. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    Couldn't you say that Watermelon Man was the start of the "Blue Note Boogaloo" (more than a year earlier)?
  12. Lee Morgan - The Sidewinder

    It was also used for some Solid State albums. This is my favorite; Chick Corea's 1968 Solid State album, re-released as a Pacific Jazz album by Music For Pleasure on cassette!
  13. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    I guess I was thinking of this: It's good, though!
  14. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Oh, I haven't listened to that one in a long time. Seem to recall it was unusually pop-ish in style (Stevie Wonder tunes etc).
  15. The All Things Van Morrison Thread

    The figures stated in the article aren't necessarily all wrong, but it fails to make the appropriate analysis: that it's still largely impossible to compare casualties or number of infected individuals between countries - and may very well always be. This is because the matter is much more complex than most would like it to be, especially if there's an agenda (political or otherwise). Countries have been testing people to such a varying degree and by such different criteria that it's mainly pointless to compare those figures (number of infected individuals per country). And the number of casualties, which in many countries peaked quite early, depended on much more than the lockdown approach. How did the infection get into the country? When and to which areas did people go on vacation (where they got infected)? What is the average population density? How do people in crowded areas commute; by bus, train or car? I do not think that all the early decisions were wise in Sweden, but I agree with the initial stated ambition - that measures must be sustainable, maybe even over several years.
