Using that link displays the CD as if nothing had happened .... :rolleyes:

Any place that calls itself ‘Chalkys’ raises my early warning alarm immediately ! :rolleyes:

I think that things enter public domain in the EU after a certain period of time has passed since the release date, not the recording date.

What irritates me about this situation is that we've seen archival Monk releases in recent years that have been released without a hitch.  The Carnegie Hall date with Monk came out on Blue Note after Concord had acquired Fantasy (and thus Riverside).  The Olympia date came out on Hyena and Monk was under contract with Columbia at the time it was recorded, like the Palo Alto date.

My thoughts exactly.

Perhaps there are contractual issues to which we are not privy.

I wouldn't worry too much. I'm sure that Jordi will put it out soon. Andorran copyright is still only 25 years.

Well, my order fell through as well.  I received this message: "We have been hoping that this disc would become available again soon.  Unfortunately, the record label has just advised us that it has been deleted from their catalogue, and they have no current plans to
remanufacture."

That’s even worse news than before. The likelihood of this ever seeing the light of day is slim.

It's out there though, and as others have mentioned above there will be those who will find a way to manufacture and distribute this, and no doubt there are those who will distribute it on shared zones. But I hope that a deal will be worked out for an official release. It seems likely--there's already inventory. Someone will make a deal for ready-made product that can be sold.

From Nate Chinen and Greg Bryant's WBGO United podcast--they talk about the Palo Alto date (though they can't and don't play any music from the canceled release) and Monk in general:

Thelonious Monk: Lost And Found

Which one is Shorty Petterstein?

It's embarrassing (or should be) that they front and back announce "Blue Monk" and then play "Epistrophy".

fwiw, as expected, the end-around digital realm is waiting for no one on this Palo Alto thing. Money is being lost, probably by people who don't care.

Any updates on this album? Or are we going to assume it's lost and gone forever -- or at least for the immediate future? 

I'm really bummed about this --- the two tracks I had were great! 

I've been tempted to see if someone that got ahold of it uploaded it online but I'd rather wait and pay.

I don't think it is necessarily an either/or option.  I'm leaving my Amazon.ca order in place, just in case Canada gets the release before the States.  But that doesn't mean I'm not poking around a bit on the interwebs...

I will be quite surprised if this is actually fulfilled (anytime soon), but if anyone succeeds going this route, please let us know.

On another board at least one US member received one this week fron a UK Amazon marketplace seller.

And this item is noted "In Stock" which it was not when I looked Tuesday.

I see that as well, but I am just not sure it actually means what it is supposed to mean.  I'll let someone else take the plunge...

A few rabbits appear to have found their way to the wild, and their digital bunnies are multiplying. Find your neighborhood Farmer McGregor.

I'm not a digital file hunter and gatherer so I welcomed another shot at a silver plated disc version.

Only rarely has this NOT been the case in my experience with any amazon, and especially I've found it fruitful to order when there is a change from not listed to "In Stock." I took the plunge. There is nothing lost in the venture if it does not ship.

I ordered one too. We'll see if this one "ships" as in really ships and not just give me a shipping notice. :)
