  1. Mosaic partials ...

    I’m definitely interested! I’ll PM you shortly
  2. Mosaic partials ...

    I'd also be interested in buying a boxes/booklets for my Elvin Jones and Jimmie Lunceford Mosaic CDs.
  3. Mosaic partials ...

    I recently bought two mosaic vinyl box sets that are each missing a single record. Does anyone have an extra copy of record 4 from the Benny Goodman mosaic box or record 1 from the Jimmy Giuffre box that they would be willing to sell? I'd hate to do this, but I'd also be willing to buy the entire sets if anyone has one to sell at a reasonable price. Also, my Benny Goodman box actually came with an extra LP 4 from the Miles Davis Live at the Unplugged Nickel Mosaic set if anyone is looking to buy that one.

  5. Unfortunately, they don't have them :-(
  6. I recently got two Mosaic vinyl box sets that are each missing a single LP: Benny Goodman: missing LP 4 Jimmy Giuffre: Missing LP 1 The seller dealt very fairly with this, but I'd still like to get those LPs without having to buy the whole boxes. Does anybody have any suggestions? I already called Mosaic and the Princeton Record Exchange and they don't have anything
  7. I have read that post. I actually checked with Michael Cuscuna about this and he thought a number of those were all analog. I have a number of those box sets and, in the booklet, they describe how some of the tracks were analog mastered from the original tapes, while others were not.
  8. The On the Corner box is also excellent. I wish one of the audiophile companies would have put all of that material on LP and reissued it.
  9. Good to know! I guess only three of the Big Fun songs are on it. It is still one of my favorite CD box sets though. The music flows really well as if it was intended to be sequenced in that order.
  10. The dreaded Mosaic hinges.
  11. What do you see as the problems with the Mosaic vinyl sets? I'm new to this.
  12. Thanks so much, Brad! I just ordered the Sidney Bechet vinyl box from them. From talking with them over the phone, I have to say that the prices are far more reasonable than anything I have seen on discogs or ebay. You're right! I am new to the vinyl buying game. I wish I had known about the different audiophile labels a decade ago before everything went out of print! Now, I'm scrambling to find all of the sealed Classic Records, MFSL, Analogue Productions, Speakers Corner, Audio Fidelity, Pure Pleasure and Mosaic I can afford. I checked with Michael Cuscuna on this and he confirmed that all of the Q LPs are AAA... Agreed. I've been collecting Mosaic Cd box sets since the early 2000s and, other than a few quality control issues, the sound of the music has been superb. I was hoping that the sound on record would be even better... I'm very satisfied with the MFSL and Analogue Productions Miles titles. I only want the Bitches Brew set because I wanted a AAA Big Fun as well as some of the unreleased stuff. Do you really think the Bitches Brew CD box sounds the same?
  13. Does anybody know of any U.S. record stores that have mint/near mint condition out of print Mosaic vinyl box sets? I'm aware of what's on discogs, but a lot of those sellers are from other countries and shipping is prohibitively high right now. Some of the sets are also priced way too high (compared to the historical pricing data) on ebay/discogs so I'd much rather deal with the record stores/sellers directly. Any advice? I bought almost all of the Mosaic CD box sets when they came out and kick myself for not showing any interest in vinyl in the 90s and early 2000s. As for their vinyl titles, I'm most interested in these box sets: #110 The Complete Blue Note Recordings of Sidney Bechet (6 LPs) #144 The Complete CBS Buck Clayton Jam Sessions (8 Q-LPs) #146 The Complete Decca Studio Recordings of Louis Armstrong and the All Stars (8 Q-LPs) #147 The Complete Serge Chaloff Sessions (5 Q-LPs) #148 The Complete Capitol Small Group Recordings of Benny Goodman 1944-1955 (6 Q-LPs) #149 The Complete Roulette Studio Recordings of Count Basie and His Orchestra (15 Q-LPs) #153 The Complete Aladdin Recordings of Charles Brown (7 Q-LPs) #160 The Complete Capitol Recordings Of Duke Ellington (7 Q-LPs) #161 - The Complete Blue Note Andrew Hill Sessions (1963-66) (10 LPs) #166 The Complete Blue Note/UA Curtis Fuller Sessions (5 LPs) #169 The Complete Columbia J.J. Johnson Small Group Sessions (11 LPs) #170 Classic Capitol Jazz Sessions (19 LPs) #174 The Complete Atlantic Recordings of Lennie Tristano, Lee Konitz & Warne Marsh (10 Q-LPs) #175 The Complete Pacific Jazz Recordings of the Chico Hamilton Quintet (9 Q-LPs) #176 The Complete Capitol & Atlantic Recordings of Jimmy Giuffre (10 Q-LPs) #178 The Complete Blue Note Blue Mitchell Sessions (1963-67) (6 Q-LPs) #183 Miles Davis: The Complete Bitches Brew (6 Q-LPs) #3007 Louis Armstrong & The All Stars: Newport 1956 & 1958 (4 LPs)
