  8. Selling CDRs on eBay. Legal?

    Brad, Have you seen this thread at the Hoffman Forum? http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/some-ojc-and-other-concord-cds-are-being-re-pressed-as-cd-rs-list-them-here.444883/ These OJC CD-Rs are legit and also sold at a major brick & mortar store down here (JB HiFi). Naturally, there's also been an accompanying price increase with these discs. These are not the same as the Amazon on Demand cds. I've also found a few Blue Note titles as well. Heck, even a Deutsche Grammophon Classical CD! I agree 100% with Allen Lowe above. As far as returning them though, I recently purchased a Classical Cd from Lyrita via ebay. Turns out it was a CD-R with awful print quality (almost illegible) for the the booklet. First and only time I complained, Lyrita/Ebay returned me this message... "Dear Customer, We will refund you Note this would be the only way you can purchase this item and MOD/manufactured on demand is coming big as labels do not want to keep stock on commersially [sic] small items Kind regards " My issue is that CD-Rs should be labelled as such, though I'm more understanding of the smaller labels doing this than I am from Concord (OJC), etc.

    Track 1 - The tune is "Indian Cradle Song" (rec.1930). But I haven't worked out why it's included!

  13. BFT 170 Discussion Thread

    That scene never gets old for me. Even Fred Astaire was a fan, apparently! But those "splits" - ouch! About 20 years ago I was buying up the then new "Jazz in Paris" series and Nicholas was on one of them. Eight standards, all very enjoyable. I hadn't realized it was the same guy as the dancer though. Agreed about Nat King Cole btw. Just re-read the liners and apparently Nicholas "adored King Cole, Sinatra and Joe Williams". This is the CD I have... https://www.discogs.com/Harold-Nicholas-June-Richmond-Andy-Bey-Harold-Nicholas-June-Richmond-Andy-Bey/release/953500

    Big fan of Blind Willie Johnson. Track 9 is by Harold Nicholas (tap-dancing, ex husband of Dorothy Dandridge!) recorded in Paris, 1959.
  15. Who's playing bass?

    I remember listening to a podcast of Charles Tolliver in conversation, where he talked about Slugs saloon. He mentions that both he and Hank Mobley played there "a lot" (though not necessarily together), between 1962-65. But they did play together at Hank's house! He mentions Mobley from 18.40, but I recommend listening to all of it! Mentions John Ore earlier as well. https://podtail.com/en/podcast/gilles-peterson/strata-east-charles-tolliver-in-conversation/
