However, here's another Lulu that is a highly worthy purchase!

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Berg-Salzburg-Festival-Euroarts-2072568/dp/B007UQ7OHY/ref=sr_1_1?s=music&ie=UTF8&qid=1548452870&sr=8-1&keywords=lulu+petibon

This shit might fuck you up proper. I know it did me!

Yeah, that's the kind of Lulu I'd go for...Have the Boulez DG recording but no video. Once saw it live at the Met, NYC.

The number "Du hast eine halbe Million geheiratet" often goes through my head for whatever strange reason.

The DVD with Petibon is exquisite in every way, musically, visually, you name it.

The New Seekers - The Albums 1970-73 (9 albums) - 21.49 GBP

They'd like to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony...  "There Will Never Be Another You" by the OLD Seekers is one of my favorite songs.  This group, not so much.  But great price.

I just ordered a used copy of All Bound For Morningtown about a week ago. It’s supposed to be a good anthology of their 1960s recordings.

It is, I own it.

I have the two OAS packages, which may be enough (at least to avoid dupes).

This package is a lot nicer.

I bought the Brubeck for a teence more than that a few years ago, when I was re-upping with Paul Desmond. Two things - it takes a lot longer to get to the, uh..."less-inspiring" albums than you might thing; There is no cutoff point for when things go stale, it's back and forth up to the end.

My Columbia Brubeck CD Collection (aka CBCC) was minimal anyway, so this was a good buy for me. But there's still a buttload of live stuff not included, and maybe a one-off or two like the album with Bill Smith. But the set as is was a good buy for me, because if nothing else, Paul Desmond all up in there.

Agreed, it's a surprisingly good set.  And a corresponding live set would be nice.  Also, don't sleep on the stuff he did after this period, featuring Gerry Mulligan.  Much of that is stunningly good.

Mulligan had the marquee appeal, but the real story on those records was Alan Dawson.

Ha! 

But I take that on faith since I had stopped listening by then.

Other things to attend to.

I had no choice, they were playing it on the radio when I was, like, 17!

Still gonna need somebody to explain Jack Six to me, though.

But this, jeez, this one was played at least 3X a week, probably more, I was pulling in the signal from Fort Worth on FM after midnight, > 1250 miles away, can't say that they didn't play it every damn night, I knew it before I did the original.

Yes, I've ordered plenty from Oxfordshire, and they're good.  It will take a little while to get to you, as they are shipping from the UK, but well worth the wait.  I don't really have a track record with Rarewaves.   If you're in a hurry, good old Moviemars has it for about $5 more ($53.47), and they are US-based.

I'm not a big fan of some of these sellers like Moviemars; they stiffed me on something I purchased on eBay so they're off my list. Rarewaves' ebay feedback was less than stirling so no on them too. I certainly won't die if I don't get this set.

Rarewaves is my go-to Marketplace Seller.  My experience with them has always been perfect.
