So, did Miles prefer green or white onions? And did he share my liking for a Grimbergen every now and then?

My own set should is on the way now, together with the new Barney Wilen disc! :excited:

(But tonight, it will be Leffe brune)

Still waiting for mine to ship since I ordered using a Amazon GC, it should enter "shipping soon" status shortly I hope.

Got the set today from Amazon Germany and noticed that the DVD is region-free and NTSC. Just thought I'd mention it.

It's probably been discussed earlier but I really don't like this cover, it has the feel of a bootleg.......oh, I get it now!

One day sale at Pop Market.....a little cheaper then what I've seen elsewhere......

Well, that's not cheaper than Amazon Germany (€20.99 or about $28.50 including tax, which will be deducted from non-EU orders).

Not sure why I bother to pre-order at Amazon US. I am still in "shipping soon" mode when J&R has it for the same price right now and it's just two blocks from me.

I preordered from Amazon in November, and even with my prime membership it still hasn't shipped! I don't get it.

I changed from free to standard shipping and they put it in "shipping soon" status. It will probably change to "shipped" by the end of the night. Edit: it did ship!

$32.99 at Popmarket.

And sold out. Already a bit cheaper from some of the Amazon resellers, and my current usual best price resellers (importcds and moviemars) haven't even listed it yet.

Got mine today. I popped in the DVD mostly as an experiment to see how long it would take my three year old to squawk and ask for Phineas and Ferb. To my surprise he made it most of the way through Directions before walking out. He was watching pretty intently for longer than I would have expected.

Picked it up at my favorite Atlanta brick-and-mortar CD store today. Fabulous!

Import CD's have it listed for $30.99 -> was going to go that way but Amazon UK is even better @ 19.04 pounds (comes down to 15.80 after VAT removed)

I wonder how good Disc 1 is. Guess I'll have to wait a few MORE days, since the set delivered to me today from Amazon is missing Disc 1!

I miss real, live stores that I could walk into.

Yep. I was at the dreaded King of Prussia Mall over the weekend with my wife. 400+ stores, and not a single CD store or book store among those.

I'm really enjoying this set, as I knew I would. I watched the DVD of the Berlin concert this morning; I've had a copy for years, but of course, the quality of this issue is much better.

Apart from the sometimes astonishing interaction of the quintet, I've always thought that 1969-1970 represented Miles' absolute peak as a trumpet player - same for Wayne Shorter as a saxophonist.

Haven't gotten my copy from across the Atlantic yet, looking forward to it. I agree Jeff, Miles' trumpeting during this time period just always interests and often excites me.
