I recently bought two mosaic vinyl box sets that are each missing a single record. Does anyone have an extra copy of record 4 from the Benny Goodman mosaic box or record 1 from the Jimmy Giuffre box that they would be willing to sell?  I'd hate to do this, but I'd also be willing to buy the entire sets if anyone has one to sell at a reasonable price.

Also, my Benny Goodman box actually came with an extra LP 4 from the Miles Davis Live at the Unplugged Nickel Mosaic set if anyone is looking to buy that one.

If one fell out of the sky, I wouldn’t say no to an empty outer box (sans any sort of label) and plastic insert made to hold 2 “fat boy” cases (for a Larry Young box I have all the CD’s for, plus a booklet I acquired a couple years later).

I've always wanted to get the box and booklet for the Lee Morgan 50's set. It's always been a dream of mine but then again I'm allowed to dream.

On my wishlist is getting a new box for the Andrew Hill set. This set was made at a time when Mosaic taped the hinge between top lid and bottom.

Then they printed the name of the set on the back of the tape.

After repeated use, and countless openings and closings, the tape has splintered and the box top looks awful.

I am looking for CD 3 of the large Andrew Hill set, as well as a nice copy of the box for that set. I bought a set a couple of years ago off of ebay for a very cheap price because it was missing CD 3 and the box was badly beat up but it had everything else. It is one of my favorite Mosaics and it would be nice to have it complete.

Here is a full list of things I am looking for:

Andrew Hill Complete Blue Note (need CD3 and box)

Eddie Condon Mob Sessions (need box)

Jimmy Giuffre Complete Capitol & Atlantic Recordings (need box)

Teddy Wilson Complete Verve (need box and large book)

Benny Goodman Small Group (need box)

Lee Morgan/Wayne Shorter Complete VeeJay (need box)

Gerry Mulligan/Chet Baker Complete Pacific Jazz & Capitol (need box)

My Elvin Jones Mosaic box came with two booklets - both numbered. If anybody needs one, I'd give it away if the recipient covers the postage.

With a Cecil Taylor box-and-book out there for sale, perhaps someone has an extra Capitol Jazz Sessions CD box-and-book they are willing to sell or knows of any leads where I can buy one.

 

 Thanks and stay well

Now I really mean this question sincere. But how is it possible there are so many incomplete sets? These Mosaix boxes are like the Crown Jewels in every collection. Ill protect mine with my life, that’s for sure. I just can’t imagine you lose a cd or two, or the outer box or the booklet. Or even worse: throw them away.

I keep my boxes and booklets and cds in three separate places. If something were to happen to me right now, my wife would probably be inclined to toss some and not re-integrate all the parts. . . . I can see how this happens.

Me too. I've actually written it down in a "last letter" for my son. And yes, it's hard being OC, but somebody has to do it!
