Shorty Rogers Mosaic At Last!

I'm surprised nobody's put out a set of Shorty Rogers' arrangements for The Monkees!

Congratulations, a great price for a set that is so rare and hard to find. LP or CD?

A partner of mine gave me the Shorty Rogers set on cd after he acquired a vinyl copy.  Although I had tried to reconstruct the Mosaic set from other issues, the Mosaic set remains extremely satisfying.

Another Shorty Rogers CD set, which I believe failed to receive any action with opening bid around $70 on eBay, has been relisted and current high bid (6 days out) is $25.50. I don't know (or care to know) anything about the seller.

I know this is a long shot, but I thought I would try anyway...

 I have all 4 CDs in excellent condition. I also have the booklet. What I do NOT have is the actual Box. I know some folks out there take the CDs and booklets out and set the boxes aside. Might there be any one, pretty please, that would be willing to part with their Shorty Rogers Box itself..??

here you go - Discogs has someone selling the box & booklet only, both in VG+ condition - I just happened to look yesterday & was wondering what happened to the CDs or LPs

Listening to Shorty shortly has a nice ring to it.  This is a first rate box set.  Enjoy.

Time for me to return the favor...

Thanks to Romualdo's help here I was able to score a Shorty black box to complete my set (I already had the CDs and booklet).from Kingbeer Records.off Ebay.

My box came with another booklet.

Now I have an extra Shorty Rogers booklet (un-numbered) in very good shape.

Does anyone need a Shorty Rogers booklet to complete their set?

I also have an extra OKeh/Brunswick Bix, Trumbauer,Teagarden (black box  only) for anyone who needs one..

Send me a PM if interested and we can work out something..:D

How about a special thread to offer and look for Mosaic partials - I, e.g., have a second Elvin Jones Booklet to trade/sell/give away.

That's good news jazzkrow

BTW I could have done with a Rogers booklet - I only have CDrs of the set plus a photocopied booklet - a boardmember here kindly ripped their set for me a few years ago. I've been looking to source a set for years but they've always been out of my price range (too expensive IMHO). They were already OOP when I started buying mosaics in the early/mid 90s. I think the cost of shipping to australia would be ridiculous so I'm happy to stick with my photocopy version

That's a great idea of a separate new topic for partial Mosaic sets/ booklets..
