CROOKED PIECE OF TIME: THE ATLANTIC & ASYLUM ALBUMS is a limited edition, 7-CD boxed set that includes every studio album John Prine recorded between his debut in 1971 and 1980, presented in mini-LP sleeves: John Prine (1971), Diamonds In The Rough (1972), Sweet Revenge (1973), Common Sense (1975), Bruised Orange (1978), Pink Cadillac (1979) and Storm Windows (1980). The clamshell box also contains poster inserts and a 20-page booklet with new liner notes written by acclaimed music journalist David Fricke. The cover painting, commissioned especially for the set, is by artist Joshua Petker and is based on a photo of Prine taken by Jim Shea.

Taking its name from a song on Bruised Orange, CROOKED PIECE OF TIME represents an essential and timeless American songbook and includes tracks that have become modern-day folk and country standards like: “Hello In There,” “Sam Stone,” “Illegal Smile,” “Angel From Montgomery,” “Paradise” and “That’s The Way The World Goes Round.” The expansive collection also contains favorites like: “Far From Me,” “Dear Abby,” “Christmas In Prison,” “Fish and Whistle” and “Automobile.”

This was Dave Brubeck's final recording project.  I was concerned that it was forgotten about already and was never going to see the light of day.  Glad it will finally be released next month;

I indulged in a 15% off sale at Deep Discount and bought the following.

I ordered another Mal Waldron disc, a collaboration with Steve Lacy recorded at Sweet Basil:

R-4537370-1407797277-3680.jpeg.jpg

Found a good deal on this CD.  I couldn't resist.

 

Plus this LP:

R-3141634-1412327674-1593.jpeg.jpg

I've been streaming and enjoying this.  Figured it was time to get the real deal.

I spent yesterday on a final trip round North London record shops before further lockdown restrictions are reintroduced in London.

I picked up Live At Mintons by Eddie Lockjaw Davis / Jimmy Griffin and Raw Materials and Residuals by Julius Hemphill at one, and a copy of Creative Music Orchestra by Anthony Braxton at the other.

Blimey - is Tier 2 affecting London shops that much?

Just bought a copy of the CD version of the Larry Young Mosaic. I have 1 CD of this from Mosaic and it sounds very good on my system and also the full LP version and thought it would be good to, as well as having the LPs, also to have a full digital Mosaic for CD and steaming convenience. One of my very favourite Mosaics so it deserves this 5-star multi-format treatment !

Never been over-happy with the compressed sound of those Conns. Superficially they can sound impressive but I find the coherence, timing and panning can be off at times. Mosaic’s treatment is straight-ahead and true.

Where did you go? I'm wondering if I should do similar soon. Yo Yo have tweeted some nice stock but their prices hurt

'Raw Materials...' is a fave and the Braxton is a blast in more than one meaning

It will be tier 3 soon, I suspect. Shop now!

No kidding - I have just checked their site (new to me) and just picking myself off of the floor with the shock of it all. £100 for a bog standard UA press of ‘The Congregation’. Totally ridiculous.

Yeah, they're jokers really. Take the top Discogs price and add %%. Website is a very small fraction of their stock. Successfully riding the 'vinyls' wave and fleecing the Hackney hipsters 😃

Alan's in East Finchley and then The Little Record Shop in Hornsey. Definitely a different experience to the Hackney Hypsters. The difference in price is pretty remarkable.

The Hornsey one, which is where I got the Braxton, I'd recommend at the moment. Alan's has a lot of new jazz in, mostly in the Soul Jazz or smoother end of the market. Lots of Jack McDuff etc. Only about a quarter had made it to the shelves though so perhaps worth checking in. 

I find Yo Yo a bit of a mix. I think that they overprice what they think they'll sell. The stuff that doesn't make it to the website is sometumes more moderate.

Noticed that Yo-Yo/Hackney Hypsters have a Michael Garrick ‘Heart is a Lotus’ on their site but at £400 it is stratospheric, even for this rare LP and condition is far from perfect.

I love the Little Record Shop. My local, less than a mile away, but I don't go nearly enough as I always end up spending so much.

I like the no internet approach and the eccentric opening hours. The selection is usually interesting at the very least and prices not too mad either. Maybe I'll go tomorrow...

I've never been to Alan's which is daft really.

There's a couple in Palmer's Green too

Alan's is fun. It is an old fashioned record shop experience and the man himself is very nice and chatty, which is a change. Not an easy trip if you're based in Hornsey though. 

Are the Palmer's Green ones RDA and Merlin?

Yes, those two. Merlin makes me smile, piles of stock, apparent disorder and no prices on some.

In Wood Green so Alan's is a bit awkward but I should make the effort, couple of buses probably.
