  1. Just saw this and just ordered. Thanks. This was an easy decision for me as I did not have any of this material in any other format. The only Joe Henderson I have is The Milestone Years CD box and a few of the recent Blue Note 80 or Blue Note Classic reissue lps so this will make a nice addition to my Joe Henderson collection.
  2. Thanks. PM replied to and pics of set sent via email. Set is on hold for Desert Vibe.
  3. Nice! I received an an email from Mosaic an hour ago informing me that my set has been forwarded to their warehouse (not shipped yet but hopefully soon).
  4. Record Store Day 2021

    No Sun Ra? I think every RSD has had at least one (and sometimes 2) Sun Ra records. I have all of them except for the Sun Ra Standards RSD release of a couple of years ago (RSD 2018, iirc). The Grateful Dead Olympia Theatre, Paris, is a great show and the vinyl would be enticing but I already have the Europe '72 Complete Recordings box set and I wonder how much of a sonic upgrade (if at all) the new vinyl release will be compared to the CD (which sounds excellent). The Roland Kirk is one I'll have to get.
  5. Price reduced to $155 (plus $10 media mail w/postal insurance). Payment by pay pal friends/family. Thelonious Monk: Complete Riverside Recordings (15 CD). 15 CDs in 4 fat jewel cases housed in a large 12x12 box with large booklet. All is in Mint, like new, condition (large 12 x 12 box, booklet, CDs, jewel cases). Thanks.
  6. Sinatra In Vegas With Sun Ra Discovery

    I can’t wait to hear the Sinatra and June Tyson duet of New York, New York, ha
  7. No worries....no offense taken. All the best.
  8. I checked discogs after seeing your post and did not see any sets for sale at 60 or 70 euros. There is a less expensive set listed for sale in Austria but that one lacks the box and book. And there is a set listed in France for around $125 USD but it is only a Very Good copy and, when shipping to the U.S. is included, I believe the price would be above my asking price. Median sales price on discogs is a useful starting point but one has to be careful in using it because it reflects past sales and not current value. It is more useful in pricing still in print items than for out of print sets, whose scarcity and price may swing a bit over a few months or year. For example, a hypothetical set that sold for $125 a year ago may now be scarcer and sell for much more. Just my thoughts. Thanks for letting me know about the concern regarding my price but, after looking at discogs and eBay today, I think my $160 price is a fair price for this 15 CD set that is in mint condition, out of print, and getting scarcer. But I will definitely monitor pricing trends on the secondary market and will be amenable to adjusting my price downward in the future if that is how the market is trending. I recently had sone interest for this set on an audiophile forum of which I am a member but nothing definite yet. Thanks again. I appreciate your feedback. though nothing definite yet)
  9. I researched prices on discogs, eBay, etc, when I first posted this for sale and the lowest price at that time was around $200. Where are you seeing it listed for 60 or 70 euros? Are you sure those listings are the same edition as this one? This is a copy of the nice, larger (12” x 12” box) original edition. I think there was a cheaper edition released a few years ago in a smaller no-frills package. That edition does sell for less but is not the same quality as this larger edition. Thanks.
  10. Price reduced to $160 plus $10 media mail insured). Payment by pay pal friends/family. Thelonious Monk: Complete Riverside Recordings (15 CD). 15 CDs in 4 fat jewel cases housed in a large 12x12 box with large booklet. All is in Mint, like new, condition (large 12 x 12 box, booklet, CDs, jewel cases). Thanks.
  11. Still available. Thelonious Monk: Complete Riverside Recordings (15 CD). 15 CDs in 4 fat jewel cases housed in a large 12x12 box with large booklet. All is in Mint, like new, condition (large 12 x 12 box and booklet, CDs, jewel cases). $170 (plus $10 media mail insured). Payment by pay pal friends/family. Thanks.
  12. The problem is that buying Tone Poets at the Blue Note store when they have a 15% or 20% or 25% off sale is still more expensive (when shipping cost and tax are added) than buying from Amazon and some other places. I received a 10% discount code from Blue Note when I registered at their site a month or two ago and ended up not buying anything because a single Tone Poet lp would still have cost me $38 after the discount when shipping and tax were added in. I bought most of my Tone Poet lps from Amazon for $26 each (btw, Dusty Groove also has a lot of the more recent Tone Poet lps for $28 each. I bought 2 of my Tone Poets from them).
  13. I will definitely get both of those upcoming Tone Poets. I do not have any versions of those in my collection and the Tone Poet releases will be welcome additions. I just discovered the Tone Poet series about 2 months ago and have bought 10 Tone Poet releases in that time. imho, the Tone Poet series is the best quality and value in vinyl. The sound of the Tone Poet releases is amazing - perhaps the best sounding vinyl I have ever heard (all except Andrew Hill's Black Fire, which does have some kind of flutter or other sound issues; the Hoffman forum has hundreds of pages on it; "warblegate" is what I think they call it). And they are packaged in beautiful gatefold sleeves with great Blue Note b/w photos in the inner gatefolds. Quality all around. And most of the Tone Poets can be found for $26 on Amazon (w/free shipping). That is a great value for audiophile vinyl in today's over-hyped and over-valued new vinyl market. Also, a tip: do not buy from the Blue Note store if you can avoid it because the Blue Note store sells the Tone Poets for list price ($35 for single lps), then adds over $5 for shipping, so the total cost (with tax added) would be over $40 per lp at the Blue Note store. That is even too much for me. I bought most of the 10 Tone Poets I have for $26 (plus tax) on Amazon. And Amazon packages these wonderfully (unlike how Amazon packs most of their products). Each lp is shipped in a quality cardboard record mailer that fits the lp perfectly and then that is placed insde a much large box for extra protection. All of my Tone Poets have arrived in perfect shape.
  14. Congrats. That is certainly a tough one to find at a decent price. They have most of the sets priced very reasonably and no doubt they will sell quickly. It would be hard to find a lot of those sets at cheaper prices. But I do agree that they do have one or two sets priced on the higher end.
