not yet but im very much in the market for a crazy deal.  Theres one lady i might pitch to but i still have to wait a few months at this point for disposable income to appear.  And she'd have to knock two off and bring it closer to one at that- but the thing is its a tabletop model so its not taking up space like the Schubert was, the immediate need to have it out isnt there as much.  Her price is in the "fair" range, shes not a monster.  A lot of these people think they have the hope diamond and charging 10x value.  Truth is you cant give these things away outside of the small crazy Edison collector subset, which is only slowly growing and rapidly declining.  And my dawg the edisons are 80s!!!!  Only the very last ones in 1929 were switched to 78.8 to match the edison needle types, at which point edison dealers were told to have their customers set their players at 79, as a happy medium between the old and the new.....

But if you play Robert Johnson backwards you get "Paul Is Dead".

And if you play Paul Desmond backwards, you get "well, sure, NOW I am".

My late grandfather had some cylinders with some very mannered music hall performances on them. I can't remember their names. They hadn't really stood the test of time.

Do you mean"I Remember Britt?" If so there are 3 versions... If not I don't see it.

I was just making a goofy joke alluding to the mythical Buddy Bolden cylinder—and yes, invoking “I Remember Britt” as well (nice Harold Mabern tune that Steve Slagle covers on his newest release, actually).

wait theres a legend of a Buddy Bolden cylinder?   Is it supposed to be a privately recorded one, not a commerical one?  tell me more!  and Rabshakeh I hope you can have the chance to save it- with a new stylus, the last advancement on edisons original design- it will sound better than the day they bought it

omg...

so it sounds like it might of existed at one point but was thrown away.  typical.

DeepDiscount.com is currently running a code (SCHOOL) good for 15% off.  Their price on the Lee Morgan CD set is $70 so using the coupon it would be around $60 plus tax which is the best I've sen around.  I just ordered it myself.

$59.52 on importcds.com.  I think those two sites are related at this point, with popmarket.com also being in the umbrella.

Thanks, good price. Agreed on the corporate umbrella (emphasis added). Popmarket is a crappy seller on discogs, prone to posting price errors, canceling orders at the low price due to "not in stock", but then failing to correct the errors. I noticed via Paypal that importcds and popmarket use the same e-mail address.

I thought it was coming out on Friday? Their coupons are usually only for in-stock items.

Happy to step up. God knows a mythical cylinder will still be better than the real life recordings of cockney music hall my late step granddad had.

They include items coming out in the next week (usually).  The coupon works fine for the set and if you use TopCashBack you get another 4% off too.

Same. Order arriving Friday. The original 3 CD Lighthouse set was always a favorite and I had it since college when we did AOTW on it.  Of course we know what happened to my original ser
