  1. Many thanks for this, Hans.
  2. Sorry David, I haven't listened to it either. I am digging the Brunswick, Columbia Ellington set.
  3. ASNL is indeed short for a football club but not Arsenal or Chelsea. It is short for Association Sportive Nancy Lorraine a top league club in France. This is my home town football team where Michel Platini started his career. He is still a legend there. The 77 should have been 78 but I made a typing error when registering. The last and only time Nancy won the French Cup was in 1978 and the goal was scored by the legend Michel Platini. The Duke/Ella booklet is thinner than the booklets we are used to in the traditionel sets. There are some nice photos but I have not had the chance to read it yet. I am currently enjoying the Ellington set. Once again Mosaic have done a great job with this one. I have got the feeling that my My Chronological Classics will be redundant now. They will still be good enough for my car. Regarding the Threadgill, I haven't even opened the box yet. With 5 big sets and two Selects, it is going to take me a while to listen to all that music. I will post my thoughts in due time. The Threadgill is a bit of a stab in the dark for me. I don't know much about the man and his music.
  4. I wish.... . I knew I would buy all those sets. It is better to buy them in one go... I have only listened to the first two CDs of the Ellington set so far. What a gem!
  5. I concur with the various criticisms about the shipping options offered by Mosaic and their costs. I have also let them know my views and I hope they will take feedback into account. To beat the bad combo high shipping costs/ custom charges I have been saving money for a while to place a massive Mosaic order. I have just received my little treasures (Ellington, Jamal, Threadgill, Duke&Ella, Monk, Carter and Akiyoshi selects). DHL was doing a great job but this is not an option any longer. Idem for Fedex who have their depot next door to where I live. Yet, saving up to place a big order is worth it. It costs me $60 for International UPS + only £33 for custom charges. Not too bad for a $800 order. The CD player is warming up....
  6. Although I live in the UK, my family live in France. If you are looking to buy something from Amazon.fr marketplace, give me a shout if you run into this type of problem. I'll be happy to help.
  7. I often wonder what makes people or businesses refuse to ship to foreign countries. As long as the buyer pays for the correct shipping costs, I can 't see what the problem is.
  8. He has just listed another ten!

    There are two copies for sale on Amazon marketplace Germany (Amazon.de). I have bought CDs from both sellers and I have been pleased with the service on both occasions. Considering the mad prices some Classics can reach nowadays, 16 euros doesn't seem too much to me. http://www.amazon.de...&condition=used
  12. Could the people who have received their Ellington set tell us if Mosaic have changed the boxes they use for shipping? JAW mentioned a few months ago that they were considering using sturdier boxes. As I have received quite a few battered sets in the past, I would welcome the change.
