Did not buy this so far as I have it all on different LPs or CDs - but if you have one, the remastering should be okay ..... :lol:

One year later.  Still grooving to this box set.  

Listening now with fizzy water.  I don't drink Monday-Thursday.  

Looking forward to hearing it with rum cocktails this weekend.

I was afraid you would say that.

I have a couple of the old LPs on the Panart labels, and these CDs sound much better!

I also have the CD set and can confirm that both the music and sound quality are excellent. It is a great set; highly recommened.

Now enjoying an Ancient Mariner with the Fajardo disc:

3/4 oz  freshly squeezed lime

1/2 oz fresh grapefruit juice

1/2 oz simple syrup

1/4 oz allspice dram (I use more like 1/8 oz.  A little goes a long way.)

1 oz Jamaican dark rum

1 oz Demerara rum.

Shake in a shaker with ice; pour into a highball glass over crushed ice.  Garnish with fresh mint. 

Play a wild Latin jazz or exotica album while listening.  In this case, the Fajardo disc in Complete Cuban Jam Sessions!

  • 1/2 oz simple syrup
  • 1.5 oz overproof rum
  • Dash of Angostura bitters
  • 1/8 tsp. Pernod
  • 8 oz ice.

Blend in blender.

Serve in a tall glass.

Top with shaved nutmeg.

Garnish with cinnamon stick.

What's in for disc 2? Enough discs to get drunk!

I just threw disc 5 in the player. Let's meet in the middle. Sans cocktail for me, as I have some more work coming up in the afternoon, involving driving.

151 will fuck you up. When I drank with purpose, a double was my call upon arrival and then every break thereafter. Mission accomplished.

I am off for most of this week, and in early May, I usher in Rum/Latin Jazz/Exotica season!

151 scares me, and I generally avoid it.

The thing with this particular cocktail is that this is only rum involved, 1.5 oz, along with 8 oz of crushed ice.  Many of the classic rum cocktails call for 2 or 3 oz of other rums.

However, let me tell you about one of the best uses of 151:  Amateur dentistry.

One Friday night, at about 11 pm, a crown became dislodged, and it hurt like hell.  Obviously, there were no dentist offices open at 11 pm on a Friday.

My solution?  I soaked a cotton ball in 151, placed it above the crown between my upper and lower jaw, and bit down.  I successfully popped the crown back into place, and it hasn't moved since!

Ingenuity like this only comes from extreme duress and desperation. Well done! :tup

Yes!  Experiences like this remind us of how our ancestors must have survived when their asses were being chased by saber tooth tigers on the savannah! :D
