  1. Apologies if this was mentioned elsewhere. No Business is an interesting and trustworthy reissue label. Jazzmessengers.com shows some intriguing new issues on the label of 1970's live concerts by Sam Rivers https://www.jazzmessengers.com/en/82161/sam-rivers/emanation-w-cecil-mcbee?mc_cid=adefaf5c52&mc_eid=d43870520b https://www.jazzmessengers.com/en/83230/sam-rivers/archie-series-vol-3-ricochet?mc_cid=adefaf5c52&mc_eid=d43870520b
  2. Covid vaccination: poll

    My wife and I are eligible, as we are in our late 60's, and are pre-registered, but Pennsylvania and Montgomery County have left us in the lurch as far as what to do next.
  3. +1, I also saw 715 off Al Downing (a very good pitcher) live on TV. Incredible how long he stayed on top of his game. RIP.
  4. Julius Hemphill Box Set

    I'm sure it's a nice set, but at a price tag north of $100 for 7 CD's, I'm out for the present.
  5. ECM CDs reduced 1/20

    Thanks, I'm largely just in discovery mode on them and glad to buy them from Scott/Mike. I've actually never heard any of these titles.

    No, it's awesome! My first cat was "Mingus", and our current cat is "Aisha".

  8. Koufax (replaced by Bill Singer), Drysdale, Osteen, Sutton. That works.
  9. Phil Spector Dead at 81

    That's how they were meant to sound. Overall aural impact, no clarity of specific instruments.

    I can't imagine "All Things Must Pass" without the Spector touch. Makes the set for me. And I do love how "Instant Karma" sounds as a record.

    Various thoughts on the discussion: 1 - "Hung on You" is not hard to find on 45. It was a surprisingly failed A-side following the two classic Philles hits, but some DJ's flipped it, and the semi-throwaway B-side, a 50's retread they didn't even bother to have Bill Medley sing on, did OK. That was "Unchained Melody". 2 - The climax of "Just Once in My Life" ("I Can't Give You The World" etc.) is probably the most goosebump-inspiring moment in all of music for me. 3 - I am constantly shocked at how "otherworldly" a lot of 50's records sound. Check out something like Bobby Freeman's "Do You Want to Dance" on youtube.

    I'm also a stereo guy if originally done that way, but it wasn't.

    Essential for any 20th century music collection. Transcendent stuff.
  14. No. Bottom fell out on last two albums. Did well through 2016 though each album sold exponentially less than the one before.

    Anyways, back to Phil Spector. Even after Rachelle Short, he still was worth 50 million at death.

    Great, groundbreaking musical talent, dispicable human being. It's complicated, isn't it?
  19. Hutcherson/Land, including the Land albums on Cadet and Mainstream. I had suggested that to them 10 years ago.

    The Sunny Murray on ESP-Disk And the second album on this:
  21. No need to overthink this one, just off the top of your head, what one song/recording best sums up 2020 for you. Here's mine:

    Andrew White in there anywhere?
