Thanks for posting these! Among other things, I can stop kicking myself for sleeping on the recent Japanese CD reissue of Porto Novo.

That Japanese reissue is decent — while way different sound-wise than the 90's Black Lion CD —  but I bet this new hathut reissue has even better remastering. Peter Pfister has done amazing work with recent Ayler reissues.

Great music; wish they'd do something about the cover art. I find it odd that ESP are licensing out titles they recently re-pressed themselves, but whatever. It's also kinda weird that right now we have three new reissues of Porto Novo kicking around: this one, the Japanese CD, and a US vinyl reissue for Record Store Day. It's a great record, one of my favorites, but talk about a diffuse licensing model...

Could it be because Stollman is no longer around?

The label is still active, though, run by Steve Holtje. I guess it's a way to raise money for other projects, licensing things out like that, but I don't understand pushing the same product over and over and over. Free jazz was supposed to be immune to that! Hehe.
