  1. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    Sorry Clifford, no spare..
  2. What vinyl are you spinning right now??

    It’s good - adventurous early 70s trio with Harry Miller. Ratip was living in London at the time but is now resident in Turkey I believe. There is one other LP by him on the Lansdowne Series which is more straight ahead I think. Now up - lovely easy-listening disk from Amancio D. Sort of ‘Val Doonican with balls’.
  3. Ellington Treasury Shows

    Maybe the assumption of these companies is that purchasers will do a one off load of the material into a NAS drive or such like and then stream it, ditching the CD. If so - that sucks.
  4. Which Mosaic Are You Enjoying Right Now?

    ‘Another Story’ is a real favourite of mine - very nice sounding album.

    With the Good Doctor and Arthur Blythe !
  6. August 24 Japanese UA-era Blue Note Reissues

    1994 is about right. I remember my delight in coming across it in the local CD outlet in Canada (A&B Sound, I think). There would have been zero chance of any of those promo copies making it into UK stores in the mid 70s.
  7. Ron McMaster Retires From Capitol Mastering

    Some of the early ones he did were very good indeed - Chick Corea’s ‘Now He Sings, Now He Sobs’ comes to mind. Hope he has a great retirement, well earned !
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Round the corner from Goodge St tube station? Remember seeing it but never went in.
  9. August 24 Japanese UA-era Blue Note Reissues

    Did that ‘Live at Montreux’ come out as an LP back in 73/74? If so, I never saw it - always assumed that it came out first time as a ‘Collectors’ Choice’ era CD back in the early 1990s (the ones with the white banding on the CD case). Mine is of that era.

    I would also be interested in any further insights on the sonic quality as I am tempted too by the Pure Pleasure reissue and Honest Jon stocks it I believe.
