    I am not a fan of high life music, but the reason I have the Blue Note Connoisseur CD is because of the three bonus tracks from a different session.  The three tracks add up to about 39 minutes, so it is like getting an additional album.  It is basically a jazz group - Donald Byrd, Hubert Laws, Elvin Jones, Bob Cranshaw, and a bunch of percussionists.  It is nicely recorded, with the bass centered (as usual with BN albums) and the percussionists spread out left and right.  

    I wonder why this was left in the can.  Perhaps the fact that the three tracks couldn't be split into two 20-minute sides was a factor.  

    I highly recommend this for the three bonus tracks.  As for the original album, YMMV.

    Totally agree with your evaluation of the music.  Could have made the sides 25:12 and 13:55, not horrible but not optimal.  Columbia was putting out 30 minute + Miles Davis album sides in the same era.

    First impressions from LP1 is that sound quality is pretty good considering the provenance - recorded quite hot.  Shaw cackles with great gusto into the mike - very much on form. Must have been great to see this one live.

    At times the feel sort of reminds me of Morgan’s ‘Live at the Lighthouse’, then I am reminded of the common factor - Harold Mabern.

    And they were recorded within four months of each other.

    Shame to have to think of selling off this good stuff just when you are able to enjoy. To me, half the appeal of retiring is to actually have the time to listen to these sets. In fact, it is starting to sound damn appealing..;)

    Those Debut boxes are particularly good !

    I actually was planning to sell most of this eventually anyways.  Just happen to have more time and motivation now.  

  4. I will be working to grade and price these, but am not nearly as comfortable as doing so with CD's, so it will take a while.  Thought I would put the list out here in case anyone is especially interested in any of the titles.  IM or email me at john.felser@verizon.net

    Sorry to see you have to sell so much stuff because of your forced early retirement. All the best!

    Thanks Ken, we'll be OK, just shuts down some options such as changing housing to make more room for my daughter and grandson.   Have been meaning to eventually sell off a lot of this once I stopped working.  This is barely the tip of the iceberg in terms of what I'll be listing to sell.

  8. I have the Bias CD, grabbed it (and a lot of other titles) from Nimbus West directly back when Tom Albach made much of the catalog available on CD and fulfilled the orders himself.  As JSngry says, grab this stuff when you can, it doesn't last.

    Dan, thanks man.  Just has been quiet and I am always excited to hear if my music "spoke" to anyone else.  I am guilty much of the time of living in my bubble, I am always creating.  I do wish to venture into learning and talking to others about other areas on the board, but I do get tunnel vision....this I know.  Thanks man.

    Good response, thanks.  Looking forward to hearing your thoughts throughout the topics.
