LF: Billy Harper - Knowledge of Self

12 posts in this topic

The one missing Billy Harper album for my collection is "Knowledge of Self" (Denon, ca. 1978).  I don't really do vinyl anymore.  I am having trouble finding this in CD or download format (I just broke my sworn stance against buying downloads, getting the Hannibal Peterson MPS album from Amazon last night.  As a consumer I feel ripped off, but as a listener I feel blessed.  But would have payed five times the amount for a real CD issue).  Any leads on the Harper greatly appreciated, thx.

As far as I know and can see it's never been on CD at all........so the search is off (for now at least). A rip of the LP is the only way to go, I'm afraid!

Thanks.  Any guidance on the least expensive way for me to get the LP?  The least I have been able to find is about $35 shipped to USA so far.

Don't forget that Japanese Denon LPs were always pricey to begin with.

Thanks, didn't know that.  The CD's weren't.

Was there a (supposedly legit) "Billy Harper Fanclub" CD-R edition?

I've only seen it on LP. Usually goes for around $30-$40. It was part of the Denon-PCM series.

Hopefully so! Billy's done a few things for various non-American labels (as leader and as sideman) that are still under the radar for most collectors here. Hopefully, you've got the good radar! :)

This is the one that most readily comes to mind:

Still believe that the far best version of "Soran Bushi B.H." is on the same titled Denon LP/CD .....

If there was, be careful if ordering on the used market. My one fanclub CD-R stopped playing years ago and after several e-mails to the fanclub, I've come to the conclusion that I'm SOL (shit-outta-luck) with this disc.

Needless to say, I won't ever use that avenue again.
