  1. CD Baby-no longer selling CDs

    There seems to be a misunderstanding here what "ripping" means. Someone like me who rips his CDs to a hard drive, obviously still needs CDs. I just listen to my CDs from a computer, not from a CD player. You can't rip a CD which you don't have. To answer the question, one of the following three always works for me: amazon, discogs, ebay.
  2. Interesting acetate on ebay: Monk, Mintons 1941

    US $532.66 I had a shot but was beaten. Hopefully, someone here got it.
  3. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Amir ElSaffar / Hafez Modirzadeh - Radif Suite (Pi Recordings,2010)
  4. Rest Easy Mom & Dad

    My deepest sympathy. May they rest in peace.
  5. Tower Records

    Completely forgot about this one! I used to go there as well when I lived in London from 2003-04. But mostly went to HMV on Oxford St.
  6. Tower Records

    Having lived all my life in Europe and Australia, I never bought directly from them. However, my 1999 Toshiba reissues of the two Monk Genius albums were originally sold by Tower Records, as shown below. I later bought them 2nd hand from a shop in Boston.
  7. Thanks for the link. I found this interesting: "Numbers One and Two introduced the use of a single overhead microphone, which Nessa felt would "get a blend of what the group sounded like." Denon did this 30 years later with many of their classical music recordings (they called it one-point recordings). I have many (all?) of them and like them a lot. Did not know that this technique was used for jazz recordings as well.
  8. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Never saw that cover before. My records are reissues from Analogue Production’s “Riverside Tenor” 7LP box set.
  9. What vinyl are you spinning right now??
