I think  that it was in a simpler cover but now I have another (vague) memory that it was later issued in The States.   John could have had some influence on the Canadian Columbia because of his work  at Sam the Record Man.

That's as I recall it...Canadian Columbia did a version of the Japanese 2LP, but if I recall it was devoid of discographical info, perhaps because no one did a translation from the Japanese...  And I think the sound wasn't very good.

No Black Friday in Stamford then...

The only Black Friday I associate with Mosaic is the day all those sets got pulled without warning.

Scott says the Teddy Wilson will ship in early February, with the Savory set to follow in early March.

Just saw the Mosaic website is now showing a release date for this set in March now. Tried calling today but wasn't able tospeak with anyone. Does anyone here have info or heard from Scott about what the delay is about?

I saw that too. It shows the Savory collection as being delayed until April as well. I don't have any information but would be interested if anyone else does. Going to be a very late Christmas present hahahahaha.

As an owner of a recording company, I might suggest delays at the pressing plant or delays of payment of bills. Neither is a case for worry for a music company. Sit back, sip some wine and be rewarded in the end.

The delays for this box set reaching my front porch have concerned me, but the news that it is due "mid-March", combined with a recent review of it by Kevin Whitehead on NPR's nationally-broadcast program "Fresh Air" a couple weeks ago in late February has me more optimistic that it's really on its way.

I have the 10 CD Portrait Box- how much overlap is there with the Mosaic?

I've been wondering about this as I have a bead on the 10 CD box at a very cheap rate. Of course I'm supposed to be stepping up to support Mosaic but I'm a self-interested m-f so ... :crazy:

Have you heard any samples?  Those Documents boxes, in my experience, tend to be heavily no-noised.

Those Documents sets (not to be confused with the former Austrian and now UK blues label) are released by Membran, a European public-domain label. The ones I've heard sound terrible to me, lots of noise reduction and pumped-up highs.

Membram is a disaster.

After looking through the track list, I think I'll give this set a miss. I have 7 Hep CDs of the material already and there are so many alternative takes in this! Teddy Wilson isn't a guy I'm deadly serious about; now if there were all those alternative takes of Gene Ammons.... I'd be pounding at the door!

I talked to Scott briefly on the phone yesterday, and he said some of the Teddy Wilson orders should be going out this Friday, with the rest to follow at the end of next week.  He says the Savory is most likely shipping out in mid-April.
