  1. So common long before the turn of the century, particularly in Europe. But are they common now? Or priced cheaply? Even at $70 the box set is not poorly priced, for good digital transfers and booklet, containing 4 LPs, vs LP costs individually which are unlikely to be minus ticks and pops. Especially if you're shipping to the US.
  2. Really? The Nistico-Benny Bailey starts at $18 on discogs; all but one shipping from Europe. The Goykovich higher than that, all copies outside of the US. I got interested in the box sets due to the existence of the Horace Parlan with Wilton Gaynair - that's $24 right now, all plus international shipping. If I recall from the liners this was a musician's label with modest distribution, modest print runs, and modest success.

  4. Dutch Jazz Archive - New Dexter!

    Seems like it has been forever since the Hank Mobley thing came out and I was beginning to wonder if they had more in the archives or what when I was suddenly hipped to this: https://www.jazzarchief.nl/product/dexter-gordon-in-the-cave/ 1963 Dex! No Kenny Drew which would be the icing on the cake for me but still ... New Dex!!

    The Yankees certainly need to get the rust off Chapman, assuming he's really 100%. As far as the Sox bullpen goes, if they could use Wright as the bridge every time I'd feel a lot better but I don't see that happening in successive games, or not very frequently. Kimbrel seems to have regained a little command recently but whether he can keep that up for a month straight is whole 'nother thing. And if Mookie hadn't hit the homer, you were going to see Kimbrel in the 8th with a two run lead and that would have been an adventure or a nightmare.

    The saying “possession is nine points of the law” is an old common law precept that means one who has physical control or possession over the property is clearly at an advantage or is in a better possession than a person who has no possession over the property. Even if a person is the rightful owner of the property but has no possession over it, the person who is in possession will be in a better position should the property ever be subject to challenge. This is especially true with adverse possession. However mere possession alone does not grant the possessor rights in the property superior to those of the actual owner. This adage “possession is nine tenths of the law” is not a law but a logical rule of force that has been recognized across ages. https://definitions.uslegal.com/p/possession-is-nine-points-of-the-law/

    I only knew of "Masshole" in the context of childish Yankee fans posting on baseball boards. Not that I doubted it existed - and here we have it in its purest form. Then where did the expression "possession is 9/10ths of the law" come from?
  8. Happy Birthday Michael Cuscuna - 70 Today!

    If I had that chance I'd have picked his brains about the unissued Sounds recordings. And the ill-fated session with Gene on organ and Grant on guitar. I had a pleasant email exchange with Michael back when I got the only existing copy of the Four Sounds demo and sent him a transfer. He seemed genuinely pleased to hear it but said he'd never include it in a reissue, too different from their other recordings. Anyway obviously done much for the music we love so cheers to Michael on a milestone b-day.

    You're a lawyer Brad please enlighten me as to what law they have broken. They did not steal it. They found it on the side of the road. They are asking for compensation as a condition of return. There's no illegality here, only douchebaggery. If I ran the Sox I'd order up a new banner and tell them to go blow. Then they are free to sell it on eBay. Might even get a pretty good amount since only two would exist and one would be hanging at Fenway, when they have their little celebration.
  10. Yes quite a contribution and life involved in the music in one way or another.

    Nice to know every fan base has its share of douchebags: https://mlb.nbcsports.com/2018/09/19/the-red-sox-al-east-championship-banner-fell-off-a-truck-and-is-being-held-hostage/

    Well, should he be bullpen bound if the Yankees get past the A's? Maybe Price should be held out from the starting rotation for a series, and Eovaldi should start in that case? He certainly matches well with Yankee hitters, better than the average lineup he's faced in his topsy-turvy season. And maybe Happ should be slotted 1 and 5 in the ALDS and see if one of the others can get them thru to the division series? He has handled the Sox lineup very well. In answer to your question the Sox bullpen is a steaming pile of shit and will remain that way. No one is trustworthy and someone will piss away too many games in October.

    Perhaps I should have said "as well situated as possible in the present circumstances" to keep the Red Sox from celebrating in NY. Speaking of 110 win pace, since I am hardly convinced they are a mortal lock for the World Series, I really hope they get to 110 wins because that would make Cora all-time for rookie manager wins, eclipsing Ralph Houk's first year as Yankee manager (and I'm going to guess that Houk inherited a juggernaut?).

    At least the Yankees are well-situated to keep the Red Sox from celebrating on their field - Happ, Severino (vs Price and we know how he does against the Yankees) and Tanaka lined up for these three. Speaking of Wild Card play-in games wouldn't Happ make the most sense as starter? Then Tanaka and Severino to start the ALDS if they get thru? I think Happ has been the most consistent starter they have. No idea though if the A's are better against lefties. This season is lining up as the ultimate what-if, had Judge not gotten hurt. Similar to the '75 series when Rice went down with a broken wrist on an HBP. Hard not to think he could have been the difference in the World Series that year.
  15. Happy Birthday, Dan Gould!

    And at game's end. We were eight rows back from the dugout, dead center. The only huge disappointment is that Mom's boyfriend, Anthony Rizzo, got the day off (he came in for defense in the ninth). I don't have a lot of respect for Maddon, but that one tears it. He should be fired.
  16. Happy Birthday, Dan Gould!

    Thanks everybody. It hadn't been my request to go to Chicago but at the age of 84, Mom decided she wanted to see Wrigley and a few other sights one more time, and we set it up around my birthday. Here's the view from our room in the brand new Hotel Zachary.
  17. Happy Birthday, Dan Gould!

    Well this is awkward but what do you do when you've taken over the birthday monitoring from GA? So, um ....

    Cubs need a taste of what doesn't ail them. Why hello Cincinnati!
  19. MLB 2018: let the games begin!

    But they will be in the mix, and its a brand new season then, with Chapman and Judge back on the roster.
  20. MLB 2018: let the games begin!

    So the A's have to play two games better than the Yankees to actually beat them out for #1 Wild Card (because the tie breaker is in Yankees favor). I didn't think it was likely but looking at the schedule, the Yanks have 3 with the Jays and 3 with the Orioles, but 4 at Tampa and home and home with the Red Sox. The A's have one more with the O's, and three this weekend in Tampa. But after that it's Angels, Twins (at home) and Mariners, Angels (on the road). That's a lot against teams not going anywhere, for a team riding a long hot streak. Aside from having so many on the road, the A's may have a shot here.

    Check out this asshat: So, old-schoolers: does this guy get a pitch in the ear next at-bat/season, for standing at the plate, then heaving his bat in the air, then taking the slowest trip around the bases this side of Big Papi? I say yes. In fact, if the Rays could use Brian Daubach for target practice for the rest of his career after he did nothing but come over from first base to defend Pedro, I say this semi-pro Panthers club should throw at this guy every time, every game, forever.

    Random thought: In the era of video review, "The Flip" is consigned to the dustbin of history. In about two minutes. Foot flat on plate. Glove in between legs. Tag was on back foot. Discuss.
