By “Further Adventures,” you mean “Further Explorations,” right?

Too bad, in a way. Thought it might have been something I didn’t have.

Lon, do you prefer the sound on the JRVG CDs?

There has been criticism of Rudy's CD reissues over the years. I have a large number of them, both U.S. and Japanese, and I've never heard a bad one.

A tangentially related question: Have you heard the 2019 CD of "Bobby Hutcherson's "Total Eclipse" (UCCQ-9516)? I have the 80s U.S. CD, but I suspect that the new version will be better. We are often not told who remastered Japanese CDs, and new issues often re-use earlier masterings.

Yes, I didn't always prefer the sound of the JRVGs, but as my system has evolved, and become more flexible, revisiting the JRVGs I was really impressed with their sound, and I love their packaging. So I have been buying these when I can find them less than 20 dollars, and have decided I don't need to keep other copies of the same title when I have duplicates. (I also bought and just received that Superbit Jazz Classics version of "Byrd's Eye View" you had pointed out remastered by RVG--sounds wonderful).

"Total Eclipse" does sound a bit better In this new reissue.

Yes. That issue of "Byrd's Eye View" is an excellent package in every way. I also have "Watkins At Large" in that little series. The Transition LPs didn't have the album notes on the back cover. Instead, a loose booklet was inside the cover. My copy of "Bird's Eye View" has a cute replica of the booklet, but when "Watkins At Large" arrived, it had no booklet. Do you, or anyone else, have that CD, and did it come with a booklet?

My copy of "Watkins at Large" is not from the Superbit Jazz Series but is an "RVG Special Edition" mini-lp release, and it has an insert, but not a Transition booklet.

I have that mini-LP version. The insert you mention must be the mainly-Japanese info sheet. In English, it has the tune titles, and a nice discography of Doug Watkins. I was hoping for a replica of the Transition LP note booklet. These loose inserts can be missing from second-hand Japanese CDs. Some people go nuts about the OBI strip: CDs with those can command much higher prices; Kupiku makes a big deal about them.

Yes, I think mine came sealed, it was years ago, and only that insert. So happy to have this.
