Chronological Classics

I stopped regularly reading and re-reading the liner notes, but I like having proper documentation, mainly, and I live with the illusion that lossless files burned to CDR actually do sound better to my very ears than MP3s from my analogically hooked up MP3-player...

Sorry if this has been answered somewhere in this thread, but is there anywhere to get the discography info for these things easily? That's really all I need and then I'm ready to hit eMusic and Amazon.

UK members should note these Classics discs are a mere £3.95 downloaded from Amazon.co.uk. Extremely good value.

At the same time they are available in the "Complete Jazz Series" incarnation for £6.99. Well, I had my doubts about those all along.

Anyone with a dime to spare - and an empty store-room - might be interested in this e-bay item

Whoa, $900 just to ship it over here! It'll be interesting to see how much this actually goes for.

Cheers,

Opening bid is $9.99. Maybe I should bid $10? :crazy:

I've a hunch this auction (or rather its selling price) is a bogus auction. Look at how those two final bidderrs raised each other briefly in a flash and then left it at that. And one of them with just ONE single feedback. If a newbie comes in at an auction out of the blue and bids sky-high way before the end I smell a BIG FAT rat!!

Agree with Steve on this one. E-bay rolled out the red carpet to shill bidding when it made all the bidding anonymous.

And I would presume there is nothing to stop the sellers, creating a second ebay account and bidding on their own items to push up the price just as the auction is about to end???

Only the risk of actually winning the auction.

Of course, but then they could always re-list the item.

The CDs are rapidly running out even at the legit sites. I live in a country where I cannot download legit MP3s from Amazon. So my only option left is unauthorized downloading. Does anybody know a site where I can find the Duke Ellington albums to download?

Have you tried eMusic.com? Chronological Classics and the nearly identical Complete Jazz Series are available there (in most countries)

Search as I might, I could only find 16 of the 45 Duke Ellington Classics albums. The search function isn't too good, though. Do you know where I can find the Classics albums? (Do they have them all?)

Not from eMusic, no.
