  1. I always thought that this was a campy CD cover....
  2. The issue with my buying a collection at this point in my life is that there would likely be little of interest in it to justify the asking price or bid. I've also had very limited success trying to sell LPs unless they are in top condition or somewhat rare in and in demand. That said, I sold a Concord LP of The Ray Brown Trio Featuring Gene Harris - Soular Energy for $40 on Discogs a few months ago. It shocked me how much the average price was for it on Discogs at the time I listed it.
  3. I have actually been offered two different LP collections, one by someone's daughter and another by someone's widow. I only took what I needed, figuring there might be someone else interested in the remainding LPs. If I had taken the whole collections, the remainder would have been donated to Goodwill or dumped. Condition was varied, I get the idea that some of the LPs had been purchased used and others exposed to less than ideal conditions. But I learned never to turn down an opportunity to look at such collections, in addition to expected Dixieland and big band music, one of them had a Stuff Smith LP on 20th Century Fox.
  4. Terry Teachout, R.I.P.

    I'll never forget his recommendation of the off-Broadway musical "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee." We caught a matinee of it and we ended up with inexpensive front row tickets that we bought the day of the show. It was a scream and definitely not politically correct, full of stereotypes that were caricatured to the max.
  5. Houston Person corner

    I haven’t heard a Houston Person CD on HighNote that I wouldn’t recommend.
  6. Storing Mosaic Booklets?

    One thing to watch is humidity in the room where you store Mosaic booklets. I had my mine with my other music in an air conditioned basement in our first house yet mildew appeared on the booklets. In our second house I added both a dehumidifier and had a Mitsubishi air/heat unit installed, running both to control the humidity. It looks like I may have to do that once more in our current home, as the library is over the garage.
  7. Stephen Sondheim RIP

    I seem to remember some jazz versions of Sindeim’s “Not While I’m Around,” from Sweeny Todd.
  8. Blindfold Test Master Signup Thread

    I am willing to set up a May or June 2022 BFT.
  9. MLB 2021 Hot Stove League

    He has done little to encourage an end to the lockout, not to mention his poor handling of the all star game, moving it without doing basic research.
  10. MLB 2021 Hot Stove League

    Fire the commissioner, this clown has proven he isn’t a leader.
  11. Joke of the Day

    “Do you smoke after sex?” “I don’t know, I never looked.” A real oldie… A get well card to a union official in the hospital: “The Amalgamated Skyhook Fitters, Local 32, wish you a speedy recovery, by a vote of 232 to 231.”
  12. I was sent this CD when it was released, I agree with David Adler's review.
  13. I don’t think he was related to them. Didn’t he come from Europe to live here in the late 1950s or so?
  14. Marilyn Bergman has died.

    Of course that’s what I meant… Senior moments this soon?
  15. BFT 214 Link a dink and Discussion

    The comment about the number of tenor sax tracks was just personal preference. No matter how a test is arranged, someone will mention a lack of or too much of something… I took the first part of the test without my hearing aids on a cheap set of headphones. That will teach me.
