  1. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Tonight: Pagan Festival - Dominic Frontiere - Columbia (mono) The Savage and the Sensuous Bongos - Don Ralke - WB (stereo)
  2. I am assuming that after Mosaic sets go out of print, the masters resort to the original rights holders. At that point, are they sold digitally by the original labels, e.g. EMI/Universal, either as complete boxes or broken into original albums or, in other cases, smaller chunks? I would consider buying some of these as lossless downloads from Qobuz if they were available.

    Jonny Quest, disc 2 of 2-CD set - Hoyt Curtin (La-La-Land)
  4. So, Herb died (RIP; But WTF is THIS?

    I thought you meant Herb Alpert. Don't scare me like that!
  5. Johnny Richards - Rare Alternate Arrangement of Omo Ado

    Thank you! Are there any other tracks on "Experiment in Sound" in that kind of a groove?
  6. I recently waddled over to Qobuz and purchased an inexpensive download bundle of a bunch of Sabu albums. Included in the download was the entire Johnny Richards Rites of Diablo album, along with this alternate arrangement of the opening track, "Omo Ado." This is a different arrangement. The LP version clocks in at 6:03, and this one at 4:22.

    The version of "Omo Ado" that I linked in the original post?
  8. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    I will happily do downloads if the vinyl or CD is not readily available.

    Camille 2000 - Piero Piccioni (Easy Tempo)
  10. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Listening to the CD, but I have the vinyl also.
  11. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Mosaic packaging is boring, not proprietary. Understood. Check out what they have; you may be surprised.

    Chuck Mingus - Jazz Portraits (UA)
  13. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    And 16 are on Qobuz.
  14. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Thanks, but I'm not too eager to waddle over there.
  15. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Just what I need. Russian malware.
  16. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Respectfully, Qobuz charges for downloads, and the hi-res options, when available, can be pricey.
  17. So, What Are You Listening To NOW?

    Jonny Quest, 2-CD set - Hoyt Curtin (La-La-Land)
  18. Johnny Richards - Rare Alternate Arrangement of Omo Ado

    That is a great album, but I also love West Side Story and Cuban Fire.
  19. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    No, the commute would be too long. Agreed, although they are presumably paying someone to deal with labels like Mosaic, and also to oversee digital releases of other back-catalog titles. I just sent an e-mail to info@universal.com. I'll let you know when I get a response.
  20. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Again, the work has already been done. Universal can't find an unpaid intern to upload the files to Qobuz? What do they possibly have to lose?
  21. Johnny Richards - Rare Alternate Arrangement of Omo Ado

    I would say the Kenton albums Richards arranged are a much better starting place. The only Richards album I really like is Rites of Diablo. Like Stan Kenton, Richards has the capacity of simultaneously being hip and square.
  22. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Because the historic argument about the majors not releasing older material was the time and work involved in the remastering relative to the poor sales. This argument evaporates once the work has already been completed. So, as a curious human being living in the 21st century, I am trying to understand the corporate argument against releasing the material digitally. They stand only to gain and not to lose. I used Mosaic as an example here because they generate interest among this board's demographics. I may have used different examples elsewhere.
  23. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    I'm using Universal as an example. The point is that Mosaic has no bargaining power regarding what the rights holder does after the Mosaic box is gone. I have no dog in this race. It's the shareholders' money to lose, not mine.
  24. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Correct, and as far as lossless downloads, they offer only 16, at least under the Capitol Vaults banner. So the question is, what's stopping them? The work has already been done. All they need to do is upload the files.
  25. Mosaic Masters After They Go Out of Print

    Because only some people want the physical product. Some don't, and some may want only selected albums in the sets. I buy lots of limited edition film scores, and many of these are offered as lossless downloads after the physical product sells out. Why should Universal should not upload these? Mosaic has zero say in the matter.
