  1. Your music cataloging "system"

    Man, I love these kinds of threads! I rip all my CDs and share the audio files across my computers. The audio files are backed up, and my CDs are on full display. I know it's not the "Show yer collection" thread from the early 2000s, but here it is, minus the Mosaics and similarly sized box sets: https://www.flickr.com/photos/187626192@N04/49702197523/in/dateposted-public/. I keep a master spreadsheet in Google Drive, with basic information - artist, title, label, label #, any additional notes that I find interesting (e.g. RVG series) and number of discs. I use Lord's Discography to record the CDs and individual tracks that I own. Selecting the tracks one by one made for a tedious summer, but it's easier to to add new purchases now that the bulk of the collection is already in there. Although Lord is not perfect, it's pretty good and an easy way for me to, say, look up a box set and see how much music I'd be duplicating. I can look up the Mosaic Boogie Woogie select and easily see that I have the majority of the music on Chronological or Collector's Classics discs and the Lionel Hampton Mosaic set.
  2. Are there any box bargains currently available?

    Ellington Centennial Edition on eBay, new and Buy It Now at $125 with $14 shipping. That's as cheap as I've seen it.
  3. Not sure if this has been mentioned, but the CD version of this set is available at Grooves-Inc for 56 dollars or so, and maybe free shipping. Damn. I paid $90 to UDiscover.
  4. Allen, are you serious about wanting to unload the Benedetti set? If so, what $ amount would you accept?

  5. PM sent on Lonnie Smith - Live at Club Mozambique Albert Ayler - Holy Ghost - Revenant 9CD - $75 Lee Morgan - Live At The Lighthouse - Blue Note 3CD - $35
  6. If You Were on the BBC Desert Island Discs Program

    Thought-provoking question, and a tough one. Grant Green - Jean De Fleur (Idle Moments) Gerry Mulligan - Rocker (Original Gerry Mulligan Tentet) MJQ/Laurindo Almeida - One Note Samba (Collaboration) Bud Powell - Dance of the Infidels (Bud Powell Vol. 1) Art Blakey - Children of the Night (Mosaic) Cannonball Adderley - Somethin’ Else (Somethin’ Else) Fats Navarro - Casbah King Pleasure/Annie Ross - Moody’s Mood For Love (Golden Days)
  7. Thanks for the heads up, Stompy (just ordered one). According to Scott Wenzel, they discovered the Berigan sets in a a box marked Woody Herman, somehow confused in their move from one location to another.
  8. I didn't see this posted elsewhere. From their email (note that some Chronological Classics are back in production/for sale): Worlds Records is going out of business. In order to promote internet sales we are offering a 5% discount on all web orders. This discount will show up in the final invoice. After more than 40 years in business we will be closing when all inventory is gone. To this end we are inaugurating a new sale today. Every Tuesday we will be offering all product from one or more Artist Listings on sale with a 25% discount. For example, today we are offering all CDs by artists whose last name begins with C, such as Bob Chester, Carmen Cavallaro, Rosemary Clooney, Benny Carter, etc. This applies to Various Artist collections also. These various artist collections are listed by the first letter of the title, such as Cabaret Echoes, Columbia Dance Bands, Chart Toppers Of The Thirties, etc. These sales are limited to stock on hand. These sale items for the week of February 25. Once again, this week's sale items can be found here. All sale items included in orders from our website will receive a 30% discount, 25% from the sale product price and a 5% bonus discount on all items included in the order (even if they are not on sale), calculated on final invoice. We will continue offering New Releases as they appear. For instance we have recently begun offering the Crystal Stream label (from Australia). We had a problem with these CDs when they were first offered in 2002 and we discontinued selling them for ten years. The problem, it turned out, was that paper labels were used on the discs and an imbalance on some discs caused problems with many CD players. Now the discs have information applied with ink; the sound is as great as ever and for those who enjoy music of the 1920s and 1930s you will find these discs a wonderful addition to your library. Another label that we have not offered from many years, Classics Chronological Collections, are available once again. These CDs were first offered in batches of 5 per month over an incredible 15 year period. Over 765 titles were originally produced in France. Now an ambitious project has resurfaced with the intention to bring back as many of the original titles as sales warrant. The plan is to present all releases by an artist at one time (or in the case of an artist like Duke Ellington who had 45 CDs, in several batches). For instance the early artist reissues are by Ethel Waters (7 of the 8 CDs), James P. Johnson (8 titles), The Three Peppers (1 CD), etc.. These CDs are manufactured in the United States. Until next week... Ren Brown info@worldsrecords.com Worlds Records
  9. What music did you buy today?

    Got a set of pristine Chrono(lo)gical classics off of eBay. I'll be subsisting on tap water and Ramen for the foreseeable future, but at least I'll have something to listen to while I do so. Albert Ammons 1936-1939 Albert Ammons 1939-1946 Albert Ammons 1946-1948 Art Tatum 1944 Art Tatum 1932-1934 Art Tatum 1934-1940 Bix Beiderbecke 1924-1927 Bix Beiderbecke 1927-1930 Bix Beiderbecke/Paul Whiteman 1927-1928 Bix Beiderbecke/Paul Whiteman 1928-1929 Earl Hines 1928-1932 Earl Hines 1932-1934 Earl Hines 1934-1937 Frankie Trumbauer 1927-1928 Frankie Trumbauer 1928-1929 Frankie Trumbauer 1929-1931 Frankie Trumbauer 1932-1936 Frankie Trumbauer 1936-1946 George Wettling 1940-1944 Harry James 1939 Harry James 1937-1939 Harry James 1939-1940 Harry James 1940-1941 James P.

  10. Worlds Records sale

    worldsrecords.com I didn't see this posted elsewhere, but I got an email from Worlds stating that they are having a 15% off sale, applicable to everything they sell. A couple dozen CDs are on sale with a combined 23% discount off the list price (http://www.worldsrecords.com/catalog/birthdays/1janbirth.html); this latter offer is good through Friday. Many titles offered by Worlds can be had cheaper, even with the discount, but the discounted price for Jazz Oracle CDs ($12.75) is pretty competitive, at least for the single cd sets. Blowitoutahere.com sells Jazz Oracle titles for a buck or so less, but they charge a buck more per disc for shipping, and Worlds has timelier service. For multiple-disc Jazz Oracle titles, however, blowitoutahere is still better. You can get the Red Nichols 3-cd sets for 26 bucks plus a dollar shipping there, vs. 34 or so dollars at Worlds. Just letting everyone know - I have no ties to either of these sites. According to the email, the 15% off sale is not subject to an end date at this point.
  11. FS Wingy Manone Collectors Classics cds

    Just wanted to say Pete's a good man to do business with (I took these CDs off his hands). The discs arrived in quickly and in great condition, and the packing job was first rate.
  12. J&R Sale with possible free shipping

    As BeBop notes, the free shipping code - good, I believe, through tomorrow - is TECHEXPO11. I had to make multiple orders of no more than 3 CDs in order to successfully apply the code, but it worked.
  13. Just in case anyone's interested and unaware, J&R (jr.com) has a lot of OJCs and Blue Notes on sale for 6 bucks. Even with not inconsiderable shipping costs - the promo code did not work for me - a lot of these titles are still cheaper than can be found used on Amazon (with the $3 shipping/CD).
  14. What music did you buy today?

    Today at Amoeba picked up Dizzy Gillespie Vol.5 (Masters of Jazz) Dizzy Gillespie Vol.1 (Masters of Jazz) Joe Lutcher 1947 (R&B Classics) Gerry Mulligan - California Concerts, Vol.1 Unfortunately, my database isn't up to date and II already have the Joe Lutcher, so that's a few buck wasted. The other three, however, are good finds at good prices.
