The Magnificent Goldberg Posted November 4, 2009 Report Share Posted November 4, 2009 I recently ordered two McDuff twofers in the Oldies.com sale and wondered the other day whether, when they turn up, I’ll have all of Jack’s recordings for Prestige. What a mess the McDuff Prestige discography is! It took me ages to work it out; and I had to list every track from every session and the LP and CD issues. And I found a whole LP I hadn’t known about before! That’s “Good times” by Shaky Jake, a Bluesville LP on which he’s accompanied only by McDuff and Bill Jennings. Apart from that, I’ve got all but three tracks that McDuff recorded for Prestige (or I shall have when my order turns up). Prestige split loads of sessions up into different LPs, giving Fantasy a bit of a headache in terms of reissuing them (not to mention a couple of unissued tracks, which haven’t seen the light of day at all). I think the chaps at Fantasy tried their best, but four tracks fell through the holes – unnecessarily, because there was room to have included them; usually in the “logical” CD. But looking through the list in session order, one certainly sees all sorts of other anomalies. This would probably be a good discography for the Mosaic treatment, if ever it came to it. Anyway, here’s the list. Hope you find it interesting. Jack_McDuff_on_Prestige_trax___issues.doc MG Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
