Just received a batch of the Hat Hut ezz-thetics Revisited CDs (via Tommy's Jazz & Squidco)

This live Horace S Quintet (64-66) is absolutely superb (including SQ) from a stellar period in his career. It's basically a compilation of live tracks that Horace released on the Emerald label (one LP & one CD), which was a subsidiary of Silveto. The whole of Emerald CD 1003 (Half Note) is replicated (sans the Alan Grant Intro) & two tracks (of 4) from the Emerald LP 1001 (Cork & Bib) making 80 minutes in toto.

For Joe Henderson fans it's a real bonus - standout track imho is The Tokyo Blues (Cork & Bib) running in at 15 minutes.

BTW the Emerald CD was rereleased on the 32 Jazz label, titled Re-Entry. Looks like the two Cork & Bib titles are on CD for the first time.

It started out with some promise-- I did appreciate the Ayler series and the Fontana albums. But now he's just skimming from Blue Note and OJC, I can scarcely imagine anything more redundant. 

I guess they figure that if it works for Fresh Sound, why not?

I’m irrationally offended by the orange-cover clearly not-licensed ‘reissues’ specifically of Blue Note studio material — from what I had always presumed was a legit label.

‘Incensed’ is clearly too strong a word, and would just be hyperbolic — but they do kinda piss me off whenever I see them on Dusty Groove website listings.

When did Hat Art/ezz-thetics go full bootleg? This stuff isn't anywhere near PD in Switzerland and there's no mention of "licensed from" on the CD art:

Wow!! I always thought they were legit - have been buying their material (CDs) since the early 90s

the bootlegging probably relates to the Revisited series (11xx) - admittedly I have been perplexed by the Blue Note & OJC inclusions

The choice to reissue the classic Miles Davis Prestige titles is not just perplexing, but silly—especially when the Hat back catalog could be mined. That said, the live Ayler reissues were licensed from Desiree Ayler, so the label isn't full bootleg...yet.

The latest Paul Bley reissue (Trio Plays Annette Peacock) is of value, though it does appear to be a bootleg. Michael Brändli resuscitated the old Limelight LP ("Mr. Joy"), which sounded absolutely atrocious on vinyl. Now it's quite listenable. Verve was never going to do anything with this obscure record. Still...
