Charles Tolliver All-Stars vinyl and CD reissue

95 posts in this topic

Makes me wonder what is wrong with Mosaics marketing machine. I mean, they are a bit in financial trouble arent they? It surprises me that we have to hear about the release through this forum. I couldnt even find it with Google or on their website under New releases... we’ll i am going for the vinyl version anyway.

It's actually under their True Music banner, and on that part of their website, which makes me wonder if it's a Mosaic exclusive and perhaps they just have a leg up on other distributors at this time. Mosaic does send out email messages, but obviously does not have a heavy advertising budget. . . they've managed without one for a long time, but it may be that jazz words of mouth are not as vocal as in the past.

They seem to have a special relationship with Tolliver, as they did with Andrew Hill, and as they did with Sam Rivers.

We'll see. I ordered this and the Webster. (Have the Armstrong and the excellent Bushkin).

[Emphasis added] Damn. I paid via Paypal, so they charged my credit card immediately, rather when the disc ships.

I forgot to ask Scott when I ordered over the phone yesterday--has anybody heard an estimated shipping date for this release?

Listening to the Vinyl version now and I have to say: the sound is absolutely stunning. It's balanced, clear an rich, just as I am used to with Pure Pleasure Records. Quite contrary to the most here on the forum I am more into vinyl these days. Very happy with it. How's the cd, anyone? Could someone ad the cd version to Discogs?

I don't believe anyone has yet received the cd version.

$15 postage for a cd to UK, ouch, wonder if this will end up on Amazon.

wouldn’t be suprised to see Japanese mini lp version surfacing sooner than later so might wait for that.

Anybody else in Washington DC want to go in on a order of some CD's of this from Mosaic? -- probably save $4 each on shipping.

@Spontooneous -- do you want one too? - since I'll see you back in Kansas City in December.  I'm looking to put in an order by the end of April.

Oh boy, I've waited so long for this to be released on CD, I might just accept those international shipping costs in this case.

Mosaic charged my credit card for the CD today, so I assume that means it will ship sometime this week.

I received the following odd notice today:

"Mosaic Records Shipping Notification

TOTAL ORDER SHIPPED 
The following items have been forwarded to our warehouse for shipment.

Thank you for very much your support!

You will receive a notice with tracking # when the warehouse ships.

If you ordered via the website, this order # is not the same as your web order #.... These two numbers are different but refer to the same order."

So it's both shipped and not yet shipped. :huh:

They do that these days, take the orders, confirm that they've taken them, then send the orders to the warehouse to be packed and shipped, then confirm that they they've sent the orders to the warehouse to be packed and shipped. Then you'll get a notice when the items actually ships.

At this point, I'm kinda like, uh, tell you what - Mosaic just provides a box and a book as physical product, and then I pay about the same price to get an uber-hi-res DL from which I can make my own CDs or thumb drive or whatever the hell I want. If oprder fulfillment is going to be so damn convoluted, let's look at ways to at least begin to simplify.

Me too. Tracking's the least they could do given the $6 fee to ship a single disc media mail. :P (Yes, I know Mosaic is set up for box sets, not singles. But my experience with the bozos to whom they've outsourced shipping has not been pleasant.)
