Black Unity Trio – Al-Fatihah

81 posts in this topic

Anyone an idea if this will be avaible in Europe or do I need to order from the label or any US store?

No idea but I wasn't about to take the risk,

It's the sort of title that could end up at Jazz Messengers or Honest Jon's. I would guess that will very much depend on how the initial sales go - if they go well then they may not be inclined to bother with international distribution. Maybe worth seeing if you find any of the label's other releases in Europe?  Or, email them and ask?

Good idea! Some of their releases are avaible here but I’ve got a feeling the Al Fatihah release will be in small amounts, perhaps limited. Will email them.

I have just received an email updating me on the launch, along with a "thrilling" video giving a "sneak peak" of the lacquer cutting session in September.

Me too. I had to sit down after watching the video. Too much excitement for one day...

About distribution in other countries, directly from GGR
"No, they are only available via our website."

Yup got that message also. So that means: also not trough Dusty Groove or Amazon?

30 dollars for shipping, how unfortunate. I'll pass.

Thanks for noticing! But 44 euros.... don’t want to complain too much but that is a very high price :(

This is a boutique release I don't see it coming cheap anywhere.

Maybe if you tell yourself that it has Mal as an uncredited guest? :)

Got my shipping notice too!  May take a while to get here especially if customs snag it on the way in

Just arrived this morning.

Great sound and pressing. I'm a bit of a puritan when it comes to non-expanded reissues with different covers, and the gatefold isn't ideal (compared to an insert) but Ras Moshe Burnett's liner notes are cool. I had not heard it in such a long time that I'd forgotten how introspective the record actually is, and the quietness of some of the cuts is well-served by this very silent vinyl. Recommended.

The anticipation builds...

Mine's still stuck in Cleveland's USPS processing area. 

I'm trying to ignore the "glowing" reviews the USPS has been getting on this site.
