Ric Colbeck: The Sun Is Coming Up

38 posts in this topic

Ric Colbeck's The Sun Is Coming Up is being reissued in Japan on March 30th, along with at least seven other titles, the SME's Karyobin among them. Randy Weston's 1969 album on French Polydor, Niles Littlebig, is also in the bunch. A great batch to be sure.

Wow!

Have the Colbeck on original LP and also the SME on the first Chronoscope CD version, but still quite tempted to order these new editions!  Will definitely pick up the Lowther title and perhaps the Weston which I'm not familiar with...

"Niles Littlebig" is excellent ....

The Henry Lowther has already been issued on CD by Vocalion (who did an excellent job) and by some other company since then so that one is pretty well superfluous.

Other than the SME the Colbeck is the only one of interest and as I have a pristine UK Fontana vinyl of this one I'll likely pass.

Been wanting to hear Karyobin for many years. Very glad to hear this news.

will definitely try and get the SME and the Colbeck - guess a pre-order is on order :)

 

the Weston was reissued a while ago on a fine twofer with the other album from the same sessions/line-up:

It's been reissued on vinyl too (easily available but I can't vouch for the quality). The original on French Polydor is a fine recording and good pressing. I like it, but I can imagine some listeners getting tired of the conga drumming.

Karyobin and Ric Colbeck are of course highly recommended

Delayed until early May, according to an info/order update I just got from CDJapan (ordered the SME and Colbeck discs)

I'm seeing the Ric Colbeck as "release cancelled" while all the others show as having been delayed to May......maybe its a system update thing and eventually the Colbeck will also move to May (I hope so)..... (Correction - the Naura and Richardson also showing as release cancelled as at 19th Feb)

Oh shit. Just now realise I got two mails on the SME and none for Colbeck. Would love to see that one coming out, it's such a good album!

just got a cancellation notice for the Colbeck I had on order ... including this: "At this time, there is no indication to show whether or not it might be released at a later time in the future."

too bad, really!

Discontinued. The Michael Naura album too, probably all the others from this batch as well.

Huh.

Dusty Groove is still showing March 30 for the SME and McNair.

I suppose this will be a new mastering. I don't have any other version so I am getting this, but read discussions of the 1993 Chronoscope CD version being very different from the original LP.

ps: the title of the thread is a bit misleading now since only SME is out
