John Coltrane Prestige Box Set

22 posts in this topic

Who is "Craft Recordings"? These are Prestige recordings. The word "pirate" comes to mind.

There is a new release of Coltrane's '58 Prestige due out end of March:

John Coltrane Coltrane '58: Prestige Recordings on PopMarket

The Prestige Recordings - John Coltrane | Songs, Reviews, Credits | AllMusic

Why the new 5 CD set instead of the older 16 CD set? I tried looking for a thread on this couldn't find one.
 
 

Big thread on this started a month ago.

Thank you.  I assumed there was, but couldn't find it.  I have all three Fantasy Boxes, so now that I know the actual content of the Prestige Box, I will pass.

I didn't know that Concord now owns the Vee-Jay catalogue.

Nor did I.  Also didn't realize they own Vanguard - no wonder that catalog is sitting DOA.

Sugar Hill was a surprise to me as well.

I see that Barry Poss sold the label to the Welk Group (owner of Vanguard) in 1998. On April Fools Day, 2015 Concord purchased Vanguard and Sugar Hill from Welk. Dang.

What;s the purpose of this? Do they own a lot of the publishing and figure they can make more from that? Sell music for soundtracks?
Chuck? Anyone?

I know they've leased out some of the Vanguard titles.  Real Gone Music (the legit American label) put out several of the early Larry Coryell albums in the past two-three years.   But I can't imagine that was their plan.  They are just sitting on things like the Joan Baez catalog, as well as interesting lesser lights like Eric Andersen.

I did my best, but there was too much ... still have some gaps I'd like to close, but with them selling undisclosed CD-Rs via effin' A, I'm unwilling to buy anything unless I can lay hands on it and actually check.

Is much from the Concord catalogue available on streaming services?  That seems to be the main source of income for record companies nowadays.  (We may soon have to stop calling them "record companies".)

It ought to be illegal to sell CDRs without labeling them as such. I've been the victim of them a few times through ImportCDs, I refuse to pay a full retail price for lesser quality products.

my dawgs I actually don't know if we're approaching this from the right direction- think about the people in 3rd world countries might want to experience coltrane prestige box, the only way that music might be able to reach them, is through these shady new issues-

You could always move to a third world country and give the people your records and CDs. :)
