My credit card was charged yesterday for the Mobley, so apparently the pipeline is about to open.

My two all-time favorite Mobely titles are his two slightly larger bands/recordings from the mid-1960’s — BOTH with Lee Morgan too!! — namely Slice of the Top, and Third Season. Great tunes, and playing, and arranging especially too.

I really like those mid-size bands that Duke Pearson arranged in the mid to late sixties, and Slice of the Top is a prime example.

I've always wondered what (if anything?) that Duke Pearson might have had to do with Third Season, since it's a similarly larger-size group.  But Duke is *not* credited in the liners, far as I'm remembering.

If I remember right, didn't Duke possibly do the arranging on Slice because of a short time Hank spent in jail(?!) right before Slice was recorded?  I don't have my Slice liners in front of me, but I seem to remember some of that album was written while Hank was in jail for a time around then.

ANYWAY, my main point is that I've always wondered if Duke also the arranging of Third Season, or if those really were Hank's arrangements.  Perhaps the new liners of this new Mobley 60's box will shed some light on that.

Yes, I recall that ‘Slice’ was conceived in outline form while Hank was serving a sentence and Duke Pearson fleshed out the arrangements. It is detailed in the sleevenotes to the ‘Rainbow Series’ LP.

I have only a couple of those 1970s Blue Note LPs, but iirc they came with quite interesting notes.  I wish those got included more often in subsequent single-CD and box-set reissues.

I sometimes photocopy them and throw them in to the box.

Litweiler's notes were used for the BN Connoisseur cd of A Slice of the Top as well.

Thanks for this--I'll revisit them when I get back home this evening.

I finally got a shipping notice. . . for the Woody Herman. Probably shouldn't have pre-paid when the set was announced!

You are not alone, I paid for the Mobley set in February.

Yes, but at least so far a number of people don't have that set, while a number of people have had the Herman set that I prepaid for for weeks. . . . .

Anyway, I think I prepaid for the Mobley as well. Another possible problematic wait.

I thought they charged cards at time of shipping - or has that changed?

Poor guy must be exhausted—is he ever going to get that IRS levy paid off?

I have (occasionally, and years ago) bought Mosaic booklets for particular sets -- separate from the set -- direct from Mosaic.  Mostly only for the Miles Davis LP sets that were compliments to the metal-spine boxes (I think I have booklets-only from the Miles & Gil, 1965-68, and Plugged Nickel sets, iirc, all purchased direct from Mosaic at the time).

That said, I might be temping to get the booklets (only) for this new Hank set, and also for the new Lee Morgan set too -- seeing as I already have every last track of the Hank on CD, and that may be the case for the Lee Morgan as well (tbd, since we don't know the exact contents of it yet).

Anyone know Mosiac's current stance on selling booklets apart from the sets they go with these days?

(It's so hard to justify buying this new Hank set, since I've literally already got every last track, 100%, on legit CD's already.  But I wouldn't mind having a copy of the new liners, I will admit that.)

They usually only sell the booklets after a set goes OOP - unlikely that that position has changed.

Just to play devil's advocate, do you "literally" have the one previously unissued track in this set, the alternate take of "Me 'n You"? ;)
