Bechet Blue Notes for $9.57 here.

41Mizpd3x4L._SL500_AA300_.jpg

Just in case, it doesn't say it on the cover all right, but this is >not< a collection of Bechet's complete Blue Note masters, as it could be expected (I did, anyway). 8 tracks are missing.

- 7mar40: "Careless Love" is missing

- 10mar45: "Days Beyond Recall" is missing

- 12Oct45: Four out of six tracks are missing ("Save It Pretty Mama", "Way Down Yonder In New Orleans", "Shine", "Darktown Strutters' Ball")

- 9Dec45: "Quincy Street Stomp (Blame It on the Blues)" is missing

- 5Nov51: "There'll Be Some Changes Made" is missing

I know. And I did say it doesn't say "complete" on the cover. "Best of" is the name of a series of 3-CD sets (there's a Dexter Gordon), and I for one didn't expect a selection of 53 tracks out of 61 that would have fitted in there anyway.

But that's just me :crazy:

All of the Blue Note masters are included in the new 14CD Bechet box (no alternates as the title of the box indicates)

I already bought it when I thought it couldn't get any cheaper than $25, but Amazon's got the Frank Sinatra Capitol Concept albums set up again for an unbeatable $22.79!!

http://www.amazon.co...26461866&sr=8-1

This is indubitably a core library requirement, and, at this price, it is an immediate, no-regrets impulse purchase.

Beatles mono box - $89.62 at newbury comics.

This is both the lowest price I have seen it go for and the first reputable seller to offer it for under $100. I suspect at least some of the other sellers were selling fakes.

Apropos of this thread, I think...I read USA Today a couple of days ago (Wednesday?), and there was an article in the Money section about Amazon. Their profits did not meet expectations.

Anyway, I was struck by the statement that Amazon Marketplace sales in 2011 were way up, something like 50%, over 2010.

All of the newest Black Saint Soul Note sets are priced in the $20s at import cds.

Great deal!

Black Saint Soul Note Boxes

Thanks for that. I may order the Lester Bowie set. Would have also ordered Henry Threadgill, but it's out of stock.

[update] Bowie Out of Stock now, too. Will keep checking back ...

Sergio Mendes Original Album Series (five albums: The Swinger From Rio / In Person At El Matador! / The Great Arrival / The Best Of Brazil / Sergio Mendes’ Favourite Things) £8.99 at Amazon UK.

At that price, I highly recommend the Sergio Mendes box. Favorite Things is weak, and I haven't heard Great Arrival, but Beat of Brazil, El Matador and Swinger are great.
