  1. Is there a complete discography on of the Prestige catalog?

    Those Japanese Critique books were lovely just lovely to have in my hands....still have them.
  2. For completists only....

    well. the stamp collector in me is not very strong. I had lots of Big John Patton bootlegs ..listen to a few live shows...mostly prefer the official recordings Like hearing rare Grant Green, Blakey, Mobley, Byrd, Morgan etc but still in love with Sidewinder, Night In Tunisia....Roll Call....Ethiopian Knights etc but lack the time to enjoy even them let alone the rare unreleased Blakey Blue Notes or Patton late sides with George Braith or the Byrd big band radio set or Dutch Mobley sets....
  3. Herbie Nichols Radio Interview

    Without wishing to be sounding over the top this is just 100% of what I needed to hear. Beautiful From an old Herbie Nichols fan with an old Mosaic box set to go and find again and put on
  4. Strange BN lp on ebay: re- John Patton

    wow what a find indeed dare i ask if it sounded good?
  5. TTK's First Organ Groove Record

    I bought this late 80's on cd- still have it. My fav Lonnie Smith Blue Note....then i bought Turning Point I spent the last few years between one or the other....then i found Finger Licken Good....First track Hola Muneca on repeat every single time I play it
  6. Rarest "classic" BN in CD Era?

    It went down hill at Blue Note when they started recording.
  7. Larry Young Unity alternates

    Get your views on this @bertrand Never enough Larry Young
  8. Donald Byrd lost live album on Blue note((???))

    Digging deep to bring this back to life. I was listening to the Live at Montreux material yesterday...the Bobby Hutcherson and got to wondering what else was on during this festival from Blue Note other than those issued and the Donald Byrd...which we have seen on You tube and guess what...there was a setlist And the other gigs on that day include one by Alphonse Mouzon and strangely enough Barney Kessel! Alphonse is not everyones cup of tea here but for those who don't mind a bit of Funky Snakefoot there were 4 tracks Earth Play Video Antonia Play Video Mouzon Folk-Song Play Video Macrobian Wonder why Blue Note did not seem to record them?
  9. Duke Pearson - when did he leave Blue Note?

    Wow. I for one would love to find out more. Please share details when/if you can I also would love to put the record straight and state I love late Duke Pearson on Blue Note. Let's begin at the The Phantom...
  10. Baby Face Willette

    You have seen this haven't you?
  11. George Braith

    With the Laughing Soul I got it...your comments on Muzart about needing a decade..I think you are rushing it 😊 I remember picking up the late 90s early 2000s Braith material (including the John Patton late dates 😄) and the voices stuff....and then the Blue Notes and Prestige numbers made sense... except Muzart...that is linked to his late stuff...don't get it but I understand people do
  12. Rusty Bryant

    Nice work. Not essential but always got the foot tapping 😊
  13. Transition label

    But I thought it was like this "There are 2 sessions that were never released on LP: TRLP-8 Pepper Adams/Curtis Fuller and TRLP-18 Jay MigliorMiglior" so they never got released or have I missed something?
  14. New Hank Mobley Blue Note Set

    ooh I always said no more Mosaics (like I have enough - all the Blue Notes etc) but this is Hank
