Not sure...but it SURE is gonna be great to hear CONQUISTADOR with RVG sound quality! That has become for me one of the undersung gems of the label, and hopefully this reissue will help to rectify that some.

It's not going to be immediately to everyone's taste, but damn it, this is music too good to ignore even for those coming from a firmly hard bop orientation - just LISTEN, and you WILL hear!

Sorry for my help in spreading the AMG schitte!

I was at work and remembered my old US CD had a bonus cut, and when I saw that # on AMG I thought that was it.

My CD has 1992 US CD has 8 tracks, "They Can't Take That Away From Me" was then previously unissued.

Again sorry for the confusion, memory was right, but AMG not ;)

OK then. I'll answer my own question. I called CDUniverse customer support.

CDUniverse is using five different distributors for:

Taylor, Cecil Conquistador

Turrentine, Stanley Never Let Me Go

and presumably the other RVGs in this batch as well.

One of those distributors shows availability as March 26th while the others show March 23rd.

So even though the availability status shows March 26th, it's likely those two titles will be available with the others.

I'm guessing for purposes of order status display, CDUniverse uses the conservative estimate. Under promise and over deliver?

I ordered Prayer Meetin', Rockin the Boat and Free Form on monday morning and they shipped out yesterday afternoon. I've never heard "Rockin the Boat" (except for Can Heat on a compilation) or "Free Form", how are are they? Is "Rockin the Boat" a good date, or a typical late BN Jimmy outing? of those last 4 albums for BN, I think Prayer Meetin' is the special one, I didn't like Bucket when it was released on CD, that was just a tad boring to me.
