  1. Vinyl/download-only releases

    It seems most of the vinyl only releases come with a download card - particularly if it is lossless, I am good with that. Absent that, I suppose I would if I really wanted the title. Occasionally you find something that is only available in a download. In that case, it's a toss-up between buying the download or trying to find a nice used vinyl copy on ebay or discogs. I typically use a streaming service if I a) am in the car, b) want to preview a potential purchase or c) am too lazy to dig out the CD if it isn't already in my iTunes library. There is something about buying a physical product that I still like, although my kids think I am nuts. Something about committing to the music. If you throw down some cash, you have made an investment, physically and for me psychologically. Like others mentioned, I also like the notes, the photos, etc.
  2. Another vote for Hank. I didn't realize the poll was online.
  3. Phil Woods Mosaic set

    Bought it based off this thread. Echo these comments on both counts!
  4. Charlie Rouse redux

    Agreed 😀
  5. Definitely a fan and wishing him all the best.
  6. 5 Original Albums (Blue Note)

    No doubt on all accounts!
  7. New Dolphy release on Resonance

    The latest issue of Jazz Times has a Resonance ad that also mentions "the first official release of previously unissued Eric Dolphy studio recordings in over 30 years".
  8. I bought the deluxe version and have been through disc one a couple of times. It is very enjoyable stuff - to me, something of an extension of the work on Atlantic. In case anyone is interested, you can use iTunes to "edit out" the announcement of take numbers, which I found (slightly) annoying.
  9. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Paquito D’Rivera - Live at Keystone Korner
  10. Mosaic Sale ???

    Not sure how I snoozed on the Mingus when it was released, but just ordered. Been a while since I bought anything from them - should be fun.
  11. Greatest LPs to never make it to CD

    Found a "New" copy on Amazon - the vinyl, not the CD. Ordered it - why the hell not?
  12. Bill Barron - A Swedish American Venture

    Been listening to this one quite a bit lately. Even though the album spans a couple decades, it holds together very well. Barron definitely has a distinctive, interesting tone and the tunes are also his. Very much of a keeper.
