The only one that I can speak to is the Sphere record.  My advice: GET IT! :) 

You really can't go wrong with Charlie Rouse and that rhythm section.

I second HutchFan's Sphere endorsement and highly recommend Clifford Jordan's Repetition.

Makes me wonder about other releases by this fan club label but this is the first one to stand out.

Fan club label?  Hmmm.  Not sure I know what that means.  For what it's worth, the remaining stock of IAJRC CDs are selling at blow-out prices, as low as $2.50 for members: http://iajrc.org/index.php/items-for-sale/cd-listing

Well its not a commercial outfit and seems dedicated to jazz fans that puts out rare (?) material. So I went with fan club label. :g

I suppose you're not all that far off.  Most of us (I'm long-time IAJRC) are pretty fanatical.  And the label has put out material gathered by some of the Association's artist fans (completists).  I had to chuckle a little though; members are often so into their own (often mouldy) niches that it's hard to think of the whole group as being fans of anything.

So that makes me wonder if this comp of tracks by various saxophonists is all rare/uncommon stuff.

In the interest of deepening your collection, you'll want that RCA Newport thing.

If I was only able to get one off of that list, that would be it. Jackie's '67 band playing two ballads. The rest of it is good enough, but those two cuts are worthy of further inspection.

Seeing this with some delay ...

I have that LP and it sits next to the Onyx/Xanadu reissues of 40s swing/early bop on my shelf so this might give you an idea how I (just me) rate it. ;)

As for the rarity of the contents, it all depends on how comprehensive your collection of 40s/early 50s jazz is. Some examples: The Ike Quebec tracks are from one of his Blue Note sessions, the illinois Jacquet tracks were out on Aladdin, the Gene Ammons track was on a Prestige 78 but apparently was not incuded on the later Prestige vinyl reissues (because it had a vocal? "Oh  - lowly R&B!" :lol:) so is rare in vinyl form. The Allen Eager track originally was on the Jax label (rare enough) but was also reissued on one of the "Al Haig meets the master saxes" LPs on Spotlite.

So .... the contents were rare when this LP was issued in 1973 (unless you had the 78s) - as the liner notes say: "It is hoped that there will be no duplication with existing LP issues in the US" (as of 1973 ...). But now and with the benefit of long-time collecting?
