Blue Note's TONE POET series.

According to the Hofmann Forum the ‘Etcetera’ is a step up from the ‘Wally’ pressing so could be interesting.

Etcetera is tempting, for sure it will have a better cover then the LT serie.

Weird. Yesterday Amazon had Etcetera for $31.95, now it’s $34.95 and delivers in a month.

Both in stock at Honest Jons for UK, and possibly European, purchasers. £35

That is the greatest record cover ever, so by definition it cannot be better.

I admit there are worst LT serie covers than this one.

I admit I had never seen this cover before.

I love it!

I have a copy of that old LT release - the UK pressing I think. At the time of release I thought the cover art for that series was cool, as time went on I was less of a fan. Fairly neutral about it now.

Happy with the 180g (or is it 200g?) ‘Wally’ so I’ll probably pass.

I'm not a fan of the conventional Etcetera cover. To me it just doesn't mean anything, other than a graphic designer was given a task to emulate Reid Miles, but it didn't quite work.

also me never too, whoa

did we ever figure out who the art director was on these- 

(lt series)

is this a good move for us or a good move for bluenote?  Instead of BN audiophile release on a 3rd party label now you get it from BN direct?  Glad they got kevin gray in on it.  god think if they did a steve hoffman adventures in mastering for one of these.  one of you dawgs would fly out to LA for that i know it.  Remember that, for a brief period around 2010 steve hoffman acepted aplications to sit in some mastering sessions, incl CSN debut couch lp.  They borrowed the master tape from stephen stills and threaded it ip and went to town, afterwards he even bought everybody pizza

I played my old Connoisseur ETCETERA cd yesterday, and I must say that it sounds tinny, there's so little bass. There are no mastering credits, but I'm almost sure it's got McMaster all over it. I love that my preamp has an equalizer. A little tweaking, and now I've got a listenable disk.

I've forgotten how strong of a session it was. Those 1964-1965 Shorter albums are friggin awesome.

For a good 10-15 years now, ETCETERA has been my #1 favorite Shorter leader-date.  I don't think(?) there's been a Japanese SHM-CD issue of it, but if so, I'd be temped to get it that way (and I otherwise rarely upgrade very many CD's I have).

I have it as The Collector, with a different opening cut and no "Toy Tune."

Heck, I’d forgot about that, have the King LP of that one too. So - 3LPs and one CD. Do I really need a ‘Tone Poet’? :rolleyes:

Short answer: YES.  :g

I used to have both that and the LT, but decided "Toy Tune" is weaker than "The Collector" and jettisoned it.

The Collector is a tune from the Adam's Apple session, no?
