  1. New Soul Station XRCD Blue Note - out now. Sounds great!

    Couldn't resist the sale. Only 15$ each, plus another 15% off. Of course there is P&P to Europe. Never heard those XRCD's, so I ordered 7 of them. I have a normal CD Player, I'm curieus to hear the difference with other versions
  2. Ebay craziness

    I was excited about this until I saw that you have to buy the entire collection, not individual sets. Wish I had that amount of money right now..!
  3. Sexiest album covers

    this is the kind of marketing instrumental music needs. But the response wasn't good at the last BN Street Team meeting. Is he a good sax player? :P
  4. which exact batches ofRvG's did have copy control?

    The dollar is taking a pounding :P:P I am wondering how many of this CD were manufactored in the US, it wasn't a limited edition. There must be a store where they sell it for a normal price, only I haven't found it yet... JB Sorry 'bout that. Couldn't resist. MG
  5. which exact batches ofRvG's did have copy control?

    Hmmm.. It was only released in 2005.. but a US RvG version of Leo Parker's "Let Me Tell You 'Bout It" is 99$ and up on amazon, while the European version, with copy control, on is only 6.54 English Pounds...
  6. which exact batches ofRvG's did have copy control?

    Don't think so, on the back of the tray it says both "copy control" and "printed in the USA". And now I remove the black tray, beneath it, copy control is also printed.
  7. which exact batches ofRvG's did have copy control?

    Weird... I just ordered and received a CD (The RvG Stanley Turrentine's "That's What It's At", from 2005), especially ordered it from a US Internet store, and it looked kind of weird: It was the first RvG in a normal black jewelcase, instead of the see-through with "Rudy van Gelder" printed on it's spine, but, more important, on the back it says: "printed in the USA", and still had copy control on it! And also strange, the CD in it, (with copy control) had "printed in the EU" on it...) There goes my simple system of buying all Blue Note's in the period of copy control in the US... JB
  8. Blue Note CD-Rs now on Amazon

    "Bird at the Highat"... An CD-R for $16.00, or an original (second hand) for $0.67 let me guess.. (although anybooks sells a CD-R of The Port Of Harlem Jazzmen" for $41.52, jeez...)
  9. New Soul Station XRCD Blue Note - out now. Sounds great!

    why not make all cd's xrcd's, so the price can be almost as low as normal cd's again?
  10. Les Baxter's Master of the World + Goliath & the Barbarians&#3

    Which is, unfortunately, probably why it sold out. way too expensive... 72 euros...
  11. Mingus Ah Um

    I saw it on the net somewhere for $37.00 ... Maybe a cheaper US or EU version will be released someday... JB
  12. which exact batches ofRvG's did have copy control?

    thanks for the info, Swinging Swede and others... s o the 2006 Conns, which were released on 06/06/2006 should all be without, that is good news... JB
  13. I haven't been on the forum for a while, but I know that for the best information, this is the place to be. I the past, I did read here from which exact batch till which batch the Blue note RvG's did have copy control. I tried to get this info through the search option, but apparently I'm doing something wrong. Hope one of you experts can help me.
