  1. Happy Birthday Mr. Charles Mingus

  2. Reckless Records

    I bought a few Selects online from them over the past year, and they were in very good condition, though I would certainly not say "pristine mint". I used to go to the loop store a lot when I was traveling to Chicago regularly, and the used stuff runs the gamut of quality, like most other stores that sell second hand CDs. Not a problem for me, but if you are looking for mint and/or paying a decent amount I would try to get more detail than what is on the website. I can't comment on vinyl, never bought any from them.
  3. Riverside "The Compositions Of" Compilation LPs

    Looks like Discogs has it broken out in 2 different series: https://www.discogs.com/label/870989-Pop-Composer-Series And, yeah, Discogs is always duplicative and incomplete.

    Didn't see this one mentioned in this thread: Duke Ellington - 3 Essential Albums Back to Back, Live at the Whitney & Soul Call. Amazon link Edit: looks like there are a bunch of new 3 albums sets coming out. Link

  9. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    Import CDs selling this set for $33.26 plus shipping.
  10. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    Yes, and I hope that is true. But it doesn't seem unreasonable to think the "imbalance" could swing farther over to the streaming side of things, IMO. We'll see. I think this Bootleg Series has been pretty terrific overall, and am pleasantly surprised that it has continued all the way to a sixth volume. If this is it, then it's been a nice little run.
  11. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    Enjoy these sets while they last.
  12. Miles Davis Bootleg Series Vol. 6

    I pre-ordered from Amazon for $39, and they shipped it for $35. Seems like most of the other Bootleg series sets are still in print selling for $30-$40, so I'm sure the price will drop again on this one.
  13. IPod Replacement

    Not Apple, so probably not helpful, but here's a favorable review of the SanDisk player. They also discuss the Sony a bit. https://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-cheap-mp3-player/ When my Classic dies, I'll probably just get the SanDisk.
  14. Blue Note logos

    Not really about logos, but an interesting examination of Blue Note fonts.
