  1. LF: Mosaic Larry Young box set

    I "bid" $95 for this great charitable cause and the excellent 6 CD gift premium. And, I'll tuck in some nice CDs in with my check. Does Rooster hear $100?
  2. What is your favourite Mosaic for listening pleasure

    What Clunky said and Soul-pope echoed. OMG yes Herbie Nichols. Cheers!
  3. Av Receiver Replacement

    You might try calling or connecting via online form with Echo Hi Fi in Portland.... tell them what you are looking for. They post used gear everyday, and modestly priced AV receivers from Arcam, Rotel, and Marantz are seen regularly. Definitely reputable for buying used vintage amps and receivers.
  4. Would a member be willing to allow me to borrow their set, for a cash deposit? I’m clean and tidy, and would barely breath on it. It’s not out there to buy. Thanks. Dan
  5. LF: Harry Miller on Ogun

    I'm searching for the Miller Ogun set. I know it may take years. Has anybody had success buying mere CDRs from Hazel?
  6. If anybody is game to buy and ship a few CDs for me from amazon.co.uk marketplace seller, I'll pay for such services. (I'm in NY.) Thanks! Dan
  7. Bookcase speakers?

    I wholeheartedly recommend the B&W 601 series. Value miracle for a few hundred bucks.
  8. LF- Hampton Hawes All Night Sessions

    I sent a PM with the link.
  9. LF- Hampton Hawes All Night Sessions

    $70 on Amazon. Great set.
  10. The Grateful Dead Dark Star

    Morning Dew... **THE song that perhaps best enabled young and old Deadheads to bear similar witness to the band's best** ....good to the last drop.
  11. I have had nothing but EASY, positive experiences buying lossless music on this site -- Nels Cline, Brotzmann (Outspan!!!). More obscure and OOP FMP... just a few pay periods away! . They have a nice little mobile app for playing purchased music (and trying free tracks), No problem enjoying favorite long tail out stuff on an out app. And I have no idea if Bandcamp represents better economics for artists, but let's hope so. Saw this on their landing page: Fans have paid artists $139 million using Bandcamp, and $4 million in the last 30 days alone. A $50MM annual gross ain't peanuts. Hopefully that monthly figure gains steam.
  12. What to Reissue Number Two

    Here's a long shot: The Don Ellis Orchestra. CDs eventually covered just about all his LP releases, but I'm curious if there's more out there somewhere and in glorious hi-fi.
  13. Beautiful, like new. 200w/ch, no remote* $1500. * it's in South Africa, long story...
  14. Stanley Cowell recs

    I enjoy the Piano Jazz edition with Stanley Cowell. And SC's ECM release from way back, I think that's one of the three MP's i've ever paid for.
  15. London Air Lift for me, please. Thanks
  16. Best work by Ornette Coleman sidemen

    Sunshine of My Soul???
  17. Sam Rivers: Streams

    I have Sizzle on CDR from the go-go days of "free" downloads. It's good, I listen to it a few times a year. Streams, while good, isn't suitable as $25 lust-for vinyl. I would suggest spending on blank CDRs that your "friends" could use to "lend" you "play" copies of some of the very good but rare and OOP sessions that Rivers released in the 20 years before his death e.g. - Configuration, Winter Garden, and Eight Day Journal.
  18. Where the hell is Phil Schaap?

    For me Schaap was an essential part of my portal into the music. 1990-93 as a reverse commuter, so much fucking driving and heavy traffic to mid-Jersey... WHAT??? would I have done without Phil and Sid Gribetz?? Thank you dudes! And so much beyond Bird and Duke and bop and swing... the birthdays... Mingus, Vaughn, et. al. an amazing projection of interest, love and care.
  19. Ornette Coleman, New Vocabulary

    Stollman: "I made all these calls, all these visits, set up things with record companies for you".... A few hours of "work", one might guess. A few hundred bucks worth? Loss leader for the privilege of a business relationship with a genius?
  20. World's most expensive turntables

    If it sounds like shit you can always just use it in the car.
  21. Thoughts on cheap, multi CD re-issues

    i don't know when the legal concept of copyright or intellectual property originated but if the estates of Shakespeare and Bach were alive and kicking and trying to lobby for a change to copyright laws and perhaps re-enforce legitimate claims, I think that would be cool by me. All this "free" IP and music stealing is obviously terrible, and we would do well as a society to use all technological means to ensure that legitimate property rights are preserved through time. Will power!!!
  22. Thoughts on cheap, multi CD re-issues

    Why should the rights of ownership to artistic and intellectual property ever fade, as long as the foundational legal regime survives to enforce those rights? Trademarks, for example, are as durable as homeowners' rights to their property; perpetual rights to property are not a freak thing but in fact normal. What seems abnormal are "legal" appropriations of property and a transfer to another domain, by fiat.
  23. Bob Dylan corner

    I've been getting into the Jewels and Binoculars trio this week. Great for my head, I recommend all three sets.
  24. I Hate ECM !!!

    Awful rant, wow I hope ECM doesn't look at the internet.... I have been a happy customer since the 70s.
  25. $750 LPs Are Hot Sellers at this store.

    HotSteamingPile.com, that's where I would instinctively look for ho hum 60s/70s/80s American rock and pop pressings offered at "audiophile-ridiculous" prices along with testimonial blather. Invest $100-500 in a good DAC and you could be well on your way to that "quiet passage" part of analog-y nirvana. Click and pop cravings, I say try $2-10 flea market vinyl, craft beer and short rib tacos, and leopard print Jack Purcells.
