Superb.

I wish Mosaic would do something with Fischer's Revelation recordings.  Talk about music that deserves a wider hearing!

Mosaic scooped up Fischer's early Pacific Jazz releases, but his stuff on Revelation is on an entirely different level.

It's likely not at all financially feasible.  Oh well.  I'll leave the bean counting to others and continue to hope.

Freddie Hubbard - Outpost (Enja, 1981)
Excellent. 

And the audio fidelity is outstanding too.  IMO, lots of Enja LPs from right around this time sound really, really good. ... Along with Outpost, I'm thinking of records like Chet Baker's Peace and David Friedman's Of the Wind's Eye.  A last gasp of all-analog, German-pressed vinyl before the digital revolution?

"Groove" Holmes - Shippin' Out (Muse, 1978)
This record has been in heavy rotation at my house.  ...  I remember The Magnificent Goldberg recommending it highly.  Good call!

I saw this and said, "There is no way MG recommended a David Schnitter record" but a google search shows he did:

He plays some extremely UN-Coltranish stuff on Groove Holmes' "Shippin' out" on Muse; the best of Grooves excellent Muse albums.

MG

Guess I will keep an eye out for this if you both like it and Schnitter isn't being his usual Schnitter self (guess I should be thankful he saved me from purchasing quite a few Blakey records from the 70s - can you tell I am not a fan? :)

the thing that holds this record back is that on the surface its an Earl Klugh lp, its very similar style to his albums of the time and of course its the man himself.  But the soundtrack director writes all the songs, not Earl Klugh, that is what seperates it from really being an earl klugh album, its more like a session he was on, that still sounds like his style, but you know if he wrote the album it would of been better

Yes, thank you. I'd not heard it for a while (I'd forgotten it is cut at 45rpm which led to a moment's confusion). Marsh really standing out on this listen (at correct speed)

I've bought a lot of LPs at Mole Jazz and I fondly remember Ed Dipple's written greetings ...

Ed and I were at Leeds University together where he cut his jazz entrepreneur's teeth by getting Ronnie Scott to bring Freddie Hubbard to the campus.

Later we lived in the same house in Manchester after which our paths diverged, I staying in Manchester while he, as you know, moved to the London area.

Wow !

Somewhere, I’ve still got what I think was his very first mail order mailshot, sent out from his home several years before the Mole Jazz shop even started. If I remember correctly, I bought a second hand copy of the Miles Davis ‘Green Haze’ twofer from it. Will have to check but I think it lists some Tubby Hayes Fontana’s at £2 a shot !

His record selling started when his ever-increasing collection got so big that it fell off the end of the sideboard in the Manchester house on which it was displayed. :lol:

The date would be about 1967.

Things got worse. That radio programme said the most of his vinyl had outgrown the house and was stored in a garage somewhere in outer London. Then there’s also the stuff that was in Mole’s basement (inner inner sanctum).
