  1. Selling some classical sets from my collection. All boxes are in very good/excellent condition with a few exceptions noted. Many discs are unplayed while those that were were ripped to iTunes and therefore played just once. My preference is chamber music so pretty much anything that doesn't fit that bill is untouched by me...and I am the original owner of all sets. Some of these sets are very heavy. Media mail postage at cost will be added...unless you buy them all. Payment is PayPal friends and family or 100% old school with a personal check. I'm a reputable seller here without any problems I'm also an established ebay seller as jazzisgood4u. This new Paypal tax reporting thing is a pain in the nuggets. Hence my terms. If you're uncomfortable with that, I understand. Thank you for looking.

  2. I dusted off my 40th anniversary copy of Woodstock to watch with my 18 year old son. It was his first time watching and while answering his many questions along the way I realized that I wanted to know more about the event myself. So I ordered a book which broke down each performance by length of set, time of set, and setlist. I was familiar with most artists but for some reason while reading the book shown below the section on Keef Hartley piqued my interest. Although I'm typically wary of groups led by drummers I sprang for this 7 CD set for about $40 and I'm very pleasantly surprised. At times the group exudes a Blood Sweat and Tears vibe (You Can't Take it With You from the live record) while the flute feature "Hickory" has an airy jazz vibe. There is also plenty of solid blues-based classic rock material included as well. Curious if anyone else is hip to this music or interested in testing the waters.
  3. Three bass players? That makes me both curious and skeptical.
  4. My charge just shows as pending. What I find interesting is that I did not receive a confirmation email for my order. I also had to set up a new account. I'm surprised that they couldn't roll over customer information into their new system. I don't think that that is a hard thing to do in 2022.
  5. I'm only missing Goin' Up but I went for this set anyway. I too am interested in the sonic improvements which I thought were noticeable on the second Mobley and Henderson sets. I sold a lot of my original Blue Note titles and replaced them with the RVGs...the audio quality being variable. I'm not an audiophile per se but having this material with top notch sound and a certain uniformity/consistency appeals to me. There is also the support Mosaic thing. I wouldn't be opposed to seeing them do some more sets like this with other Blue Note artists they haven't previously given the treatment too. The stately box, the top notch booklet. My only lament thus far on this set is the absence of a pre-order discount.
  6. Lon- that is one fine looking guitar. I just perused the net looking for one...none to be found. This is where I started with this thread- why couldn't Fender also make a JG inspired instrument that regular folks could afford? I agree with Bluesnik that I just don't get all of these guitars being made to look so road weary and old although there must be a market for them.
  7. Yes, I agree that Fender has gone to great lengths to replicate the guitar down to the smallest detail. But how about this- 100 high priced "deluxe" $20,000 editions and another 1000 of the "inspired by" $2,000 models which would obviously be toned down. I just see it as a pisser that there is such a celebration over something that would have such widespread appeal but ultimately represents just another sweet toy for the haves while the ranks of the have nots come up empty...again. I'm sure that this edition will sell out immediately, but at this price point how big is their target market? I understand that every guitar/model cannot be within the grasp of every player- and this is true for all guitar brands. It took me years to be able to drop more than 3K on my Martin, but still I'd like to see greater accessibility and an acknowledgement of the larger market that drives and supports Fender. I suppose that I'm so put off by this because this is an instrument that really interests me. A $50,000 Martin doesn't stoke my ire such as this one has. This begs a whole different discussion of the disparity of wealth and income and a justifiable sense that the deck is stacked against 99% of us. However with the forums forbidding political discussions, something with which I agree, this is a topic for a different venue.
  8. My main guitar for 35 years has been a Telecaster. Roy Buchanan was my inspiration back in the day and I've never looked back. That said, I've never taken a shine to Strats namely due to the fact that the volume knob gets in the way of my hand and I inevitably end up turning myself down (not a problem to the ears of some ). Upon seeing this beauty I decided that after forty five years it was time to buy a Strat of my very own. However, try as I may, I still couldn't get past the intrusive volume knob so I found a replacement pickguard from Warmouth that solved my problem. Going to a single tone which is an active push/pull had the end result of creating a configuration where the five way switch now has seven settings depending on the tone knob's status. As an aside, the fellow who did the work for me cries because I run 11s on my guitars. He pleads for me to stick with the 9s they come with...or offers to compromise by bumping up to tens but I stick to my guns with my trusty 11s. As a lefty I have a heavy hand and I enjoy digging into those thick joyous wires. I'm really pleased with this guitar now.
  9. I find it so disappointing that many of these custom reissues are so expensive. $20,000? That shuts out the average guitarist. Thus this limited issue of 100 guitars will go to collectors, investors, and the upper echelon of players and society with money to burn. I get that it seems as though a great deal of time, detail, and energy has gone into this but really. 1000 guitars at $2000 each would yield the same two million dollars of revenue as the 100 guitars at 20K. Alas it is a pipe dream that I will ever own one of these, let alone even see one or play it. Garcia Strat News Release
  10. I first came to know of Giorgio through this box set. I took a chance on it and was pleasantly surprised to discover an artist who was previously unknown to me but whose music I enjoyed immensely. Poking around today this set isn't quite as inexpensive as when I purchased it, but I heartily recommend it to the initiated and uninitiated alike. It provides a lot of bang for your buck.
  11. 1978 left...$18 including media mail to lower 48.
  12. SOLD I have two Newport Jazz Festival programs I'd like to sell. Both are in very good, dare I say excellent condition for their age. The binding is tight on both because they've never really been read. Thumbed through but not "read" like you might a magazine. Both are essentially magazines...50 pages or more (they are unnumbered and I haven't counted). They represent time capsules of the era with the advertisements, artists displayed, and the images. A fun flashback. 1978- officially titled "George Wein Presents the Twenty-Fifth Annual Newport Jazz Festival- New York, Saratoga, June 23-July 2, 1978." It features a great image of Duke Ellington painted by Leroy Neiman on the cover. 1980- "George Wein presents the 27th Newport Jazz Festival- June 27-July 6, 1980." with the "Kool" cigarette logo at the top. The front image is of NYC as painted by Leroy Neiman. Both were given to me by a friend. He got them as a result of ushering at the event. Since he was not a jazz fan he stuck them in a drawer where they sat for decades with him eventually giving them to me...his only "jazz friend." Payment via Paypal "Friends and Family" please. I wish to avoid the tax consequences of a 1099 at year's end for "selling" merchandise. $18 each plus media mail. Both for $32.
  13. Other than the Grateful Dead's original 1969 box set, I've been a completist with their annual releases. Since I'm not a fan of 80/90s Dead (It's the whole Brent thing) I ended up with both Spring 1990 box sets, the Giants Stadium set, and the RFK 1989 set. I parted with the Spring sets last fall and did well. As a result there wasn't much regret...but it was emblematic of being a gatherer. I still have the The Giant Stadium and RFK sets if anyone is interested and want to PM me. The 30 Trips around the Sun set is about 50/50 as it includes a show from each of the band's 30 years, but that one is a keeper. The numerous 70s sets hit my sweet spot and I'm very happy to have them. I imagine though that I will continue to purchase each set that they release every year....I'm a sucker. No jazz regrets other than the Complete Fela Kuti box. I have the 26CD version and there is one out now that has 28CDs...should I? Hmmm
  14. I ordered this from Amazon for about $80 and it never came. This is only the second time I've ever had a problem with one their numerous European sellers.
