How many Verve Elite Editions do you have?

I don't think you'll be disappointed with the Jacquet if you find it.

What Jeff said :tup

I originally picke it up to hear more Ben Webster; he's only on two tracks. But the REST of this disc is fantastic! Nothing earth-shattering, just very very swinging!!!!

Thanks Mike! There is 9 minutes of hidden music if you pause and rewind Billy Bauer!!! I've had the CD 5 years and never heard it until today! :D Now a perfect album is even better!

I don't get the Bauer trick, I tried rewinding, but I get nothing new (except the begining of track 1).

I heard a couple of takes of "Lover Come Back to Me" and then strangely enough "Paul is Dead."

Nope, sounds like just 'Its a Blue World' to me...

"It's a Blue World" is track 1, you have to scan past that toget to Lover Come Back. On my player its shows as track 1 with an index of 0

Wow, I can't believe this. I found the extra hidden nine minutes. A pain in the ass but I'm glad it's there. Hit play on the first track then rewind. I just imported this into my Mac the other day. Tried it again now but unfortunately I can't access the hidden tracks on my computer.

I might have to go searching through the rest of my Verve Elites for more hidden stuff. Is Jimmy Hoffa in there?

For those of you with the Billy Bauer - start playing track 1, then hold down rewind.

Mike, what led you to find this?

I have almost all the CDs in this series (the few I don't have - Lalo, Alan Shorter, Dinah Washington, that third stream Modern Jazz Society - I chose not to pick up when they were available and still have no interest

Modern Jazz Society is excellent whether it'sc alled Third stream or not highly recommended if you find it. C'mon it's got Lucky Thompson on it ..... :wub:

I wish I could say that I discovered this through my own curiosity and ingenuity, but alas, I was simply told by a friend who was working at Verve at the time.

Subsequently there was an article published in the IAJRC Journal that noted this.

It is definitely worth checking other Verve issues from around this time period. I think I checked all the Elites and the others don't have hidden material, but there are at least three "regular" Verve CDs that do. I won't mention names just yet.

What is the point of these hidden tracks?

Don't know if this was slipping one over on the executives who might not have approved of all that stuff (various breakdowns, etc.). Were royalties paid? Don't know.

The hidden track thing is ubiquitous in the rock/pop world.

I have a feeling I remeber hearing about a hidden track on the Getz east coast 3 cd set. Don't have that though...

One is being used currently as an avatar by a member on this board. And remember that "Verve" owned more than just "Verve" at that time - c. 1999, I think.

I had not heard about the Getz - don't know if that's true.

Thanks, Paul. Mental Cruelty is some excellent stuff! I'm listening to it right now. I think I like almost anything that Barney Wilen appears on.

Now, who's got the "Verve" avatar that Mike alludes to?
