In 2006, all four titles were bonustracks of the classic album "Softly As A summer Breeze"

In 2014, only one track "Ain't No Use" was part of

It is not a CD

But it was issued "in the CD era."

I would certainly not classify this as being from the "classic" era of Blue Note. I would think that from a historical perspective, the classic era ended ~1970, when Francis Wolff stopped producing their recording sessions. I don't think many would consider these George Butler sessions "classic".

It's not a classic era, and I would argue that ended in 1967 when Alfred Lion exited, and didn't begin until around 1955-1956 with the advent of the LP.  But it's a nice album, and BN did many good (and many more bad) and some great albums throughout the 70's.

There are those who would LOL at that statement while suggesting that the the "classic Blue Note era" had already ended by then.

I"m aware of that.  To each their own.   I'll take Andrew Hill over Meade Lux Lewis and Wayne Shorter over Sidney Bechet.  Others feel quite strongly in the opposite directions.

I'll take 'em all, myself.

and be careful what you think about Sidney Bechet, if you're not careful, you can fail the whole exam by getting that one wrong. I thank god hourly that I didn't rush to take the test, otherwise I would have failed. And there are no makeups, this ain't no drivers license, this is LIFE!!!

Thankfully it's more of a smorgasboard than an exam, we shovel what we like onto our plate regardless of whether it is the chef's specialty or not.  And for all music, including the stuff I love the most (Harper, etc.), it's all YMMV.

Yeah YMMV, but sooner or later, in some form or fashion, you do pay for that mileage. A toll road is a freeway until you get to the tollbooth.

And yes, there will be a test. Every day is a test really. Somebody tries to get you to bite on some piece of bullshit and/or misdirection and/or false narrative. A true discernment is the result of an ongoingly engaged refinement, revelation, and realization. Putting some dots together to see where the roads really go, both to and from.

Like I said, be careful what you think about Sidney Bechet. Him and earl Hines were the only two people who could meet Louis Armstrong on wholly equal terms and stay the course. There are some pretty serious implications there.

The hardest to find for me was Paul Chamber´s "Bass on Top". It was not on RVG and not on Conoisseur and not on the other regular reissues until I finally ordered it from Japan, even there were not many reissues of it, my copy is one of those mini LP cover CDs.

AFAIK the CD version of Total Eclipse was sold out quickly. Never saw a copy in a 1990's store. Still have the LP. Used copies are not exceedingly high priced, but above average.

Maybe it is different in Austria, but here in the US, "Bass on Top" was issued several times and fairly easy to find. It was issued as a regular CD in 1987 and reissued in the short-lived "Collector's Choice" series in ~1995. It was part of the RVG series in both the US & Japan. It was also part of the Mosaic Select box if you bought that.

Hutcherson's "Total Eclipse" was issued on CD in the US fairly early on. Unfortunately, back then the accountants at Blue Note decided which titles got deleted and they did this using some arbitrary number of sales per year. I was told it was "less than 500 copies". Because of these deletions, it made it very hard to find these titles for many years.

Most of these early deleted US Blue Note CDs were reissued in the  "Collector's Choice" series. This series was Michael Cuscuna's effort to get a bunch of CDs back into print by getting the OK to do a "one shot" pressing, with no changes to the artwork or mastering of the CD (they used the original glass CD masters). They did paint the CD labels white, which is how you can identify them. When those CDs hit the shelves, you had to have your wallet ready. Whatever the number was that they pressed, that was it. I bought a bunch myself. Someone has a list of them on discogs, but I don't know if it is complete:

Really? Discogs mentions 19 reissues on cd?

I found that prior to the RVG program, the hardest was Hank’s Straight No Filter. It was going as high as $100 on eBay.

I sold one for $350 and the one before that sold for almost $500. :)

The hardest one for me to find was Jimmy Smith's "Cool Blues".

I confess I purchased an expensive copy of SNF :wub: but nothing like that.
