  3. John, they are definitely not as responsive as they have been. They are I believe woefully understaffed at this point. But eventually it all works out. . . I still somehow have a tiny stash of patience I can dig out when needed.

    Johnny Griffin "Dance of Passion" Antilles cd Followed by Disc 3 "The Complete Louis Armstrong Columbia and RCA Studio Sessions 1946 to 1966" Mosaic Records
  5. I'm sure those are an oversight. . . those two have been on cd indeed. At least once. There was talk of a Lee Morgan set similar to the Mobley and now Henderson. Talk that has not yet materialized as an officially announced project at least as far as I know.

    "The Complete Louis Armstrong Columbia and RCA Studio Recording 1946 to 1966" Mosaic Records, disc 2 Starting right off with the trombone then voice of Jack Teagarden, a wonderful thing. Great sound on the RCA material on this set.
  9. Thanks. i got confused, it's the alternate on "Mode for Joe" that was previously only released on SHM-CD.
  10. It's my impression from reading here and there that the catalog has been transferred to hi-res digital in that time frame and up to this decade and Addey will be using the source transfers that SHM-CD and SHM-SACD were then made from, and the latest US sets, etc. New alternate takes have appeared in this time frame, but three of the alternates here have not.
  11. Cool. I'm happy for you, we're just viewing these things differently and that's cool. If your system doesn't present the two formats differently that's cool. I'm done kicking this horse. Looking forward to the set. in the meantime I'll listen to the new Armstrong set and digest the huge booklet! My comment about the "two camps" were those that are planning to get the set and those planning not to.
  12. Cool. I'm not interested in the Tone Poet, new vinly reissues don't interest me at all and are freaking expensive. And to me they are not both music, they are reproduced difffrerently enough taht I choose one format as sounding best and stick with it. When I bought the Mobley set I sold my other copies of the material on disc and actually paid for the set with the sales. So for me it was a win win--better sound, homogenous mastering over all the sessions and very little money actually out of pocket. I'm lucky in that I can get improved versions of something I have and explore other newer to me music. I know I'm fortunate. Anyway it seems clear to me the two camps here and I know which I'm in. Wonder when this will really become available.
  13. I guess we'll just have to agree to disagree. I've bought Japanese cds for two reasons: availability of the material and to find better cd sound. Vinyl and digital media reproduce music and are different and to me sound different. Apples and oranges are both fruits but different. In my system LP and cd playback are fundamentally different, and comparing one to another is very problematic for me--digital 99 percent of the time sounds better to me on my system than LP playback. I don't want to argue what seems clear to me. Perhaps I'm not explaining it well but oh well.
  14. I compare them directly several times and then sell or give away the one I don't prefer. I've been retired 12 years (in a few weeks it will be 13) and I have time. To me comparing an LP to a cd is apples to oranges. I'm not big into LPs and I won't pay big dollars for one, and my system sounds much better on digital material than LPs--that's where I spent the money--so I'm only interested in collecting Blue Note on cd. Others have different priorities. Priorities are great, life and leisure are built upon them. I don't think anyone needs to explain why they won't buy this set, or will. There are only going to be 2,500 copies, if that--Mosaic seems to have decided what they are going to do as far as lease limits and I think it will help them survive. I'm glad they might survive.
  15. In part many new transfers have been used for recent releases from Universal Japan and the US and they do sound really good, to me and on my system better than earlier cd releases. With Addey adding his expertise to the mastering the Mobley set sounded even a bit better. So the claim has meat to me, and there's potentially more great sounding discs in the future (or not).
