  1. Mosaic Brochures

    They were "bathroom reading material" for many years.
  2. You are right - I flipped that around. There is a thread here where this issue is discussed. From that thread, here is the summary: According to Mosaic Brochure No 10, the following vinyl sets are digital: MR6-120 - Paul Desmond 4tet w/ Jim Hall MR3-121 - Ike Quebec 45 Sessions MR4-122 - Chet Baker Pacific Jazz Studio MR23-123,MR23-128 & MR20-134 - the 3 Commodore sets MR6-127 - Cecil Taylor Candid MR10-129 - Charlie Parker Dean Benedetti MR9-130 - T-Bone Walker MR4-131 - Stan Getz 5tet w/ Jimmy Raney MR5-132 - George Lewis Blue Notes MR12-135 - Count Basie Live Roulettes MR6-136 - Stan Kenton Holman/Russo MR9-137 - Larry Young Blue Notes MR27-138 - Nat Cole Capitols MR5-139 - Otis Spann/Lightin' Hopkins Candids parts of MQ7-153 - Charles Brown Alladins ( LPs 1,2 & side one of LP 3 ) parts of MQ10-155 - Amos Milburn Alladins ( Lps 1,2,3,4 & side one of LP 5 ) parts of MQ6-165 - Illinois Jacquet 1945-50 most of MQ10-163 - Stan Kenton Capitol Studio parts of MQ11-164 - Miles Davis/Gil Evans ( LPs 1,8,9,10 & 11 ) MR5-133 - Grant Green/Sonny Clark Blue Notes(Maybe)
  3. The bots were rampant on the Yahoo comments. It seemed like every other comment was from a bot.
  4. I didn't say they sounded bad. I just think that someone that has the CD version needn't go crazy if they want all analog vinyl. I don't think it's worth the premium over the CD versions. This is why I still haven't bought a vinyl version of the Horace Parlan set yet. When I find one for a decent price, sure I'll pick it up.
  5. I don't know about that - after all, it is a woman of color - that seems to be very "pc" today.
  6. Ditching the receiver

    I upgraded my PC speakers to Klipsch R-41PM monitors. I don't know about "audiophile", but they sound a lot better to my ears than the PC speakers that came with a recent Dell PC purchase. I should've done this a while ago but until I was forced to sit and listen to them for hours, it wasn't a priority.
  7. Richard Groove Holmes - Blues All Day Long is a good one but really, 32Jazz, what were you thinking by not using the original cover? 32Jazz: Original Muse:
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    This is a great set. I saw that band live several times and this 2 CD set really captures what I heard.
  9. But I've been told that the Princeton Record Exchange prices on the high side. As for the original poster, bemoaning the lack of reasonably-priced mint condition vinyl would seem to indicate that you are new to this game. Welcome to many years of frustration. Since you missed the old days of waiting years and years for your local record shop to get in certain records in any condition, you might not realize how much many of us long-time record buyers love Discogs. I'll also add that the sets in your list with QLP in the description, were cut from the same digital master as the CD set, so if you buy one of them, you're simply playing back the music on your CD set with a needle.
  10. Claire Daly - Rah! Rah!

    This is what Claire told me: "This CD was on my old website and I hand drew the covers, but the guy who produced my first 2 cds (Donald Elfman) listened to it and offered to put it out."
  11. Claire Daly - Rah! Rah!

    Claire told me that it was issued on her private label but I never did see it. She said it was only available via her website for a short time. I'm glad someone asked her if he could give it a proper release as it will give me the chance to hear it for myself. I have enjoyed many of her previous recordings, including the ones she did with Joel Forrester's People Like Us.
  12. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I was at the Regattabar in Cambridge, MA to see Marcus and Byard play as a duet shortly after this disc was issued. The whole of Harvard Square, where the Regattaber is located, lost power, so, for about 45 minutes, Jaki sat out in the lobby chatting with us as we waited for the power to come back on. Eventually, they had to cancel the show. Jaki was murdered a very short time later.
  13. I really like the Soulful Drums part of this CD (tracks 1-6).
  14. I thought that I read somewhere that the Muse catalog was a mess because of an ugly "business divorce" that somehow divided up the catalog?
  15. Claire Daly - Rah! Rah!

    I preordered a copy through Claire. Looking forward to hearing it.
  16. I thought one of the problems with the Argo/Cadet catalog was the lack of masters? Many (all?) of the Argo/Cadet sessions that have been released on CD don't have great sound. I've also noticed that on the few releases I do have from these labels, there is often a lack of personnel listed. Maybe the label just wasn't kept in a good enough condition to allow the owner to mine it properly? You can't reissue what you don't know you have.
  17. Joe Segal has passed at 94

    What a great life. I can only imagine at the stories he could tell. I never did get a chance to see a show at his club during my many trips to Chicago. I saw a show at the Green Mill once but never Joe's place. I hope he left it to someone who will continue on so that I do get a chance to go there one time.
  18. Bandcamp waiving fees on Friday

    It's funny you say that as it's exactly what I did. I found Fielder's "Plays the Music of Pepper Adams" and "Each Time I think of You" on Amazon so I grabbed them.
  19. what are you drinking right now?

    I haven't drank that in many years but when I did, it was always very good. A little sweet but not candied like a Spatlese or Auslese.
  20. I wouldn't worry too much. I'm sure that Jordi will put it out soon. Andorran copyright is still only 25 years.
  21. what are you drinking right now?

    2014 & 2015 vertical of Beran Zinfandel. I didn't realize that the Wagner (Caymus) family had released a straight Zin to the general public until today. I have had their own Caymus Zin on trips to wine country and I always hoped to be able to buy it in a store. I saw this in the store with a little shelf talker that said "Caymus Family". I'm glad I saw that.
  22. Bandcamp waiving fees on Friday

    $9.99 to ship a $9.99 CD! Ouch. I think I'll pass. Maybe... but it's only available as a digital download. I'm not a huge fan of that. Maybe it's time I change my attitude on this?
  23. LF: Mosaic Larry Young box set

    That $90 box set on discogs doesn't sound too bad and the seller has good feedback. COVID-19 is delaying a lot of things so I would give the seller the benefit of doubt here. If you're worried about the box hinge being ripped, don't. Those box hinges used to fail all the time. You could pay $140 for one with an intact hinge and it could fail on you the third time you flipped it open. Then you'd have the same condition box for an extra $50. I was glad when Mosaic got rid of those hinges, particularly with LP sets. That hinge was almost guaranteed to fail on heavy LP sets. I've toyed with idea of using a razor to cut off all of my hinges so that when they do fail, they won't rip the boxes.
  24. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I am always surprised when someone says that they like this date. It has never been a favorite of mine. I actually think it's pretty boring. I'm spinning it right now in fact and... nope. I just think it sounds sloppy.
  25. There is one eBay seller from Japan offering the SHM CD version but their feedback is pretty bad, with several complaints that they accepted orders without any stock to ship. I assume that is the case here too.
