  1. Even the Concord sets are more likely to be the labels they acquired from Fantasy (Prestige, Riverside, etc.). Great music, but already re-re-re-released to death. And knowing Concord, their idea of a swell box set would be to combine "Plays for Lovers" bogus compilations by, say Miles, Trane, Monk, Brubeck, Newk.
  2. Black Saint/Soul Note Box Sets

    Yes, they are real CD's. Amazon sold CD-R's of some of the single titles for some years.
  3. good to know, thanks. In that case, I'll look into it.
  4. I'm in, have the first four (passed on 5 so far, not being a musician, I'm not big on studio chatter and segments). Packaging and probably fidelity and possibly legitimacy will surpass whatever I already have of this material
  5. Bernard Edwards, bass Chuck Rainey absolutely kicks butt on Gato Barbieri's "El Pampero" album (as does Pretty Purdie). That is my favorite Barbieri album of all, pure magic at Montreux, three worlds of musicians (Barbieri, Lonnie Liston Smith. Rainey/Purdie) coming together for something unique and wonderful.
  6. This was the Jaco cut for me (get past the Overture into Cotton Avenue): Lots of "greatest" bass players, lots of styles, lots of needs for the music. James Jamerson, anyone?
  7. Don't underestimate McCartney in. his context either. You really don't want Reggie Workman or someone like that on Beatles records
  8. Jet Blue and Mosaic

    Think how valuable those boarding passes may become when they go out of print!
  9. I own it. 1 CD and 1DVD. Excellent set.
  10. Coltrane, "Afro-Blue Impressions"

    Got to A-B the original from the box and the 2013, and I didn't hear any meaningful difference through headphones. I have old ears and cheap equipment, but still, if it was that different, I would have noticed it. Something like the Beatles remasters stunned me.
  11. I do. They're fine, but the magic was only in the first two albums.
  12. I actually have the CD available. Will send PM.
  13. About the quality of BST3 and BST4 if you remember those. I own them all, but only ever listen to the first two, the one with Al Kooper and the one with all the megahits. Everything else was really just weaker retreads, though not without merit. Note that two of the three have Jerry Fisher rather than David Clayton-Thomas as lead singer. Fisher has his own affectations, but they are very different than DCT's affectations.
  14. contiuation of that one: “About then these three cousins come in, you know the ones I mean, Klu, Klucks, and Klan, and they say ‘Boy, we’re giving you fair warning. Anything you do to that chicken, we’re going to do to you.’ So I put down my knife and fork, and I picked up that chicken and I kissed it.”
