    Some interesting selections here, https://merurido.jp/topic.php?srcbnr=36703 a few getting their first cd issues i believe like the Takeo Moriyama
  2. when it rains, it pours https://merurido.jp/item.php?pdid=BSMF7647 Retrospect In Retirement Of Delay: The Solo Recordings by Hasaan Ibn Ali: Amazon.co.uk: CDs & Vinyl
  3. https://merurido.jp/topic.php?srcbnr=48760 All getting mini lp reissues next month! Dollar Brand - Anatomy of A Quiet Village Paul Bley - Touching Dewey Redman Quartet - Looking for The Black Star Ted Curson Quartet - Tears For Dolphy
  4. Hi, i used to have a friend in Japan who would kindly let me have a box of cds from Amazon.jp i bought sent to him and then i would paypal him the postage and he would send to me in UK. is there anyone in Japan on here that would be open to that, i would either order a couple of cds for them or paypal them some extra cash, whatever they wanted? just thought i'd ask thanks Richard
  5. British jazz reissues

    There seems to be a cd version coming in Sept too according to this Japanese site https://merurido.jp/item.php?pdid=SBDP1101 and doesn’t seem to be a Japan only release though no mention on the Sunbeam site
  6. Interesting so if I order say £160 of cds I will pay £16 plus, just checked, 2700 Yen in postage. That isn’t too bad
  7. Amazon.jp uses the same Global shipping program but it’s hard to work out how much you might have to pay in customs, they tell you to contact the carrier to get an estimate
  8. Don’t you get screwed via customs that way, in the uk, my friend used to mark it was a gift and declare the value super low to avoid it. Most proxy shopping I have seen is pretty expensive, unless you know of one you can recommend?
  9. Alice Coltrane/Pharoah Sanders

    Yup, tried to take a photo but keeps saying file is too big for here
  10. Alice Coltrane/Pharoah Sanders

    There’s an interesting interview with Ravi Coltrane in the new Mojo where he talks about this release and also that there are tons more recordings still in the archive and the next thing to come out this autumn is another John Coltrane Quartet live album recorded in 1965 the same week as Live in Seattle!
  11. https://merurido.jp/topic.php?srcbnr=47429 A few interesting things on there that havn't been on CD in their original format, Circling In & Circulus, not sure if the material has appeared elsewhere on cd though?
  12. Mine have always come perfectly packaged by them, whether it be a jewel case or a mini lp.
  13. received my first two batches yesterday, look great, havn't listened yet. another option is to use this seller on ebay, he's very reliable, postage is cheap and will mark as a gift to avoid import fees https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/274801428002?hash=item3ffb710622:g:GcUAAOSwbdJgpeos
  14. Tim Buckley - Merry-Go-Round at the Carousel

    amazing , had no idea about this, they should really have made it a 2 disc release to include those other tracks.

  16. Hah sadly it might be a while, I have a friend in Japan who I have it all sent to and then he sends it to me in UK when I have a big box full, might be a couple of months given his tardiness. I might have to pick up some of those Chick Corea shm-cds as well to fill up the box
  17. I’ve never actually bought from Merurido, I know they don’t ship abroad though. Probably easier to use Amazon or HMV tbh
  18. Mine were shipped from Amazon.jp yesterday, the next batch are already for sale on there too. Well
  19. they are up for sale on Amazon.Jp, i find that certain releases seem to be more available from specific sites in Japan weirdly, often either in HMV.jp or Amazon.jp but not both.
  20. new Japanese Enja series in Jan

    More series coming in May, 6 & 7 https://merurido.jp/topic.php?srcbnr=47732 https://merurido.jp/topic.php?srcbnr=47734 Of interest seem to be first cd appearance for Mal Waldron's Mingus Lives from 1979,
  21. This is getting a reissue on vinyl & digital here https://alanbraufman.bandcamp.com/album/valley-of-search-reissue but i see a cd version coming out in Japan in Sept too https://merurido.jp/topic.php?srcbnr=42021
  22. This looks pretty interesting, i did like this trio of Gary Peacock, Masabumi Kikuchi & Motohiko Hino, not cheap though! 芽瑠璃堂 > GREAT 3 『コンプリート・セッシッョンズ 1994 (4CD)』KKJ9006-09 (merurido.jp)
  23. new Japanese Enja series in Jan

    Hah i just ordered this not realising i already had that track on that compilation, it really is a great version of The Creators, totally different to the version on Now! Would love to hear more from that set. The version of Nardis on this album is excellent too so still glad i bought this.
  24. Two Don Cherry releases coming in June

    Me too, that Cherry Jam record that came out for RSD Is coming out on CD next month too https://store.gearboxrecords.com/collections/new-releases/products/don-cherry-japanese-edition-cd-pre-order
