  1. Not much of a Dylan fan but I love BOTT. And Bootleg No. 8 (go figure). I get the love and all for him, but these are the only two that stuck with me.
  2. Received this DVD for Christmas and just now watched it. Really well done, utterly fascinating in fact. It really plays like a biography of Morgan, with Helen as one of the contributors. And then of course it turns. The first hand observations of Billy Harper and others are chilling. Lee Morgan is one of my all-time favorites. His music has been important to me for 35+ years. If you feel the same way, this is a must-see.
  3. Oh yeah. One of my first Lee albums. Love it.
  4. Interesting Mainstream Records reissues

    Curious how you like the Reggie Moore CDs ...
  5. Fabulous. Thanks for taking the time to transcribe.
  6. Way Out West deluxe edition.

    Agreed and I also bought. We'll see how the vinyl makes the trip here.
  7. Any Airport Express Users Here?

    OP here ... I noticed the same but did not make a difference. I have a friend who is a network guy who suspects my switch is bad. Evidently this is the device that keeps the trains (i.e. Ethernet cables) running on time. That does look cool. I think my devices are OK, which makes sense. Will post after I replace the switch.
  8. Any Airport Express Users Here?

    Thanks everybody for their response. iTunes and AE firmware is all up to date. I will try the re-set. It has been a bit maddening as they all used to work flawlessly. Now it can take 20-30 seconds to "find" an Airport Express and I experience static and dropouts. Just added a new router to the system - did not seem to make a difference (I have Spectrum - the old Time Warner). Stefan - is this something a non-technical person can employ? I came across the Pi while researching alternatives. Are there any resellers/retailers you could recommend?
  9. I have four stereos in the house and use an Airport Express with each one of them to stream music from my Mac or iPhone. Lately I have been having some issues with them not connecting. I have a combo of the older and newer models, but the issues seem random and unrelated to wifi signals. Does else use these devices to stream music and/or had problems with them? Any alternative devices. Since I am an iPhone/Mac guy, I really just need something that works with Airplay. Thanks!
  10. Actually donated a huge chunk of vinyl to my university 10 years ago. Back when vinyl was "dead". Have not replaced a lot of it on vinyl, but wish I still had it.
  11. LPs that have never made it into CD

    Agreed. Would love see both his Muse LPs on CD - winners both.
  12. Interesting Mainstream Records reissues

    At long last ...
  13. Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest

    Had one last week in Vegas. Awesome!
  14. Woody Shaw Institute

    An email I received: I hope you are doing well! Just wanted to share a few things. First off, we are extremely grateful to inform you that our new crowdfunding campaign for the forthcoming documentary, Woody Shaw: Beyond All Limits, has raised a nice $2,000 since last Thursday! If I may say so — it is precisely because of generous fans and supporters like you that I feel so certain this project will be fully-funded and completed this year. I thank you, sincerely, for continuing to support this cause. The campaign ends June 10th, 2017, so if you haven't already pledged (or you would like to pledge again! ;-), please visit Join The Woody Shaw Institute of Global Arts If you are an avid fan of Woody Shaw's music (of course you are!) and are interested in supporting his legacy for years to come, then one great way to make a pledge for the documentary is to begin your Founding Membership with The Woody Shaw Institute of Global Arts. This allows backers to support the new documentary while ensuring the ongoing preservation of Woody Shaw's music. The One-Year Founding Membership Includes: 20 Unreleased Hi-Res Woody Shaw Full-Concert Downloads 12x12 Woody Shaw Photo Print Beyond All Limits T-Shirt (Ltd. ed.) Printed Handwritten Woody Shaw Manuscript of "Beyond All Limits" (from organist Larry Young's 1965 Blue Note classic - UNITY) Private Facebook Group Access Bonus Footage, and Pre-Release Screening of the Documentary (2018) Please note that, once the documentary campaign is over, this particular membership offer may not be available again (Campaign Ends June 10, 2017). I sprung for this - could not resist the 20 unreleased concerts. Tax refund put to good use! It took a while to download and I am still converting the FLAC files. Easy, but time consuming.
