I figured it was now or never when it came to the Blakey "At The Jazz Corner Of The World". I've been reading alot of good stuff on this one recently. Didn't want to miss out.

Yeah, this was coming for a long time, and I just don't have a pile of dough to pick up the dozen or so that I want. I figured the RVG's would be around a bit, but that assumption obviously is false. The PJ's too that are going out of print will most likely never see a legit cd reissue again.

What a bummer.

Yeah, I thought the RVG's were supposed to be around for a good long time. And it particularly hurts that Sax A La Carter Blowing In From Chicago are going OOP. Thank God I got most of this stuff already.
