That's such a great record. If I hadn't rebought it as a download on Bandcamp recently I would.

My first exposure to larger group PB. What an introduction, great set.

I wonder if this points to more reissues of the Okka catalogue. A fine catalogue to investigate.

I'll stick with my Okka copy.

It is Okka - just being sold through Orbit online at this time.

Pre-ordered as my original beautiful box was lost years ago

I have all the other recordings and although they are all terrific in varying ways, the original stuff is in some ways the strongest. I do think the later all improvised material is overall the most powerful - and the recordings of the 2009, 2011 & 2013 tours are extraordinary - especially the 3 Nights in Oslo from 2009 & Walk, Love & Sleep from 2011.

And of course I remind anyone reading that the 2 shows I saw at Tonic in NYC remain the greatest live musical experiences of my life - especially the 2002 sets.

Mind blowing. From ten feet away. People screaming BROTZMANN!!!

I still have 5 copies left from when I distributed them (and most of the catalog as well). I will provide a catalog list later.

They are numbered 2875, 2906, 2908, 2916 and 2917.

Yes, I was there in 2002. Fantastic show. I saw the tentet a couple of times since then, and it never reached the level of that 2002 Tonic concert.

Tentet at Oto, easily one of the concerts of my life too. As Steve says, ten feet away.

Still have a couple of copies and I am surprised by the issue number you post. I received my copies (2875, 2906, 2908, 2916 and 2917) in 2014.

Me too Chuck. I ordered from Orbits a few minutes before you posted your offer. I was very surprised that what I received was an original issue. It looks just like the set I used to have so I sure think it’s legit.

My guess is the first one I bought might have been from Cadence

I will ask Bruno about it.

I just contacted him. I will get back to all.

Bruno says "I think that I had a few, 8 or 10, empty boxes with lower numbers".

There was a note in the package asking if I was interested in other Okkadisk titles that they had more.

I scored my copy (2853) in Dec 2007 directly from Okkadisk

Orbit Records is currently handling the Okka catalogue for Bruno. That site (orbitrecords.com) is the only place to find the FULL available catalogue. There area currently 2 other sites are carrying select titles at this time. The Okkadisk website should be up and running again (correctly) soon. There will be an Orbit link on that site, once it's fully back up.

That's a little confusing to me - "FULL", "correctly", Orbitlink, 2 other sites, etc.. Who's in charge?

Perhaps some clarification is in order. A few years ago, Bruno was ready to throw in the towel. He didn't, with some encouragement from friends, one of which works at Orbit. Orbit listed a few of the titles at that point. When Bruno moved to FL, a good portion of the inventory went to Orbit's warehouse instead of the dumpster. At the same time, Bruno's sole distributor went out of business and that inventory also went to Orbit. That's when Orbit listed all the available Okka titles. Bruno's website has not been updated since 2014. An Orbit friend is helping him work on that, and it should be up and running "correctly" soon. During the sorting and organizing of the inventory, some of the missing CDs were found for 12022 (the Brotzmann box). He had paper and 2 of the discs, but the 3rd disc was missing - that's why it has been gone for so long, but those have now been found, and yes they are real. Orbit also initiated wholesale sales to Dusty Groove in Chicago, and the Catalytic Sound website (Vandermark). Neither are carrying the full catalogue, so Orbit is the only place to find what's avaiable at this time. Soon, the Okka site will also be "correct". Bruno is hoping to make some of the out-of-stock titles available again, and is even thinking of doing a few titles on LP. Hope that helps.
