This is a nicely mellow record by Pete La Roca with a little bit of a Euro jazz/spiritual jazz vibe. Originals aren't that expensive. It's got John Gilmore, Chick Corea, Walter Booker, and Pete La Roc

The new 2021-2022 Tone Poet list is up for anyone who's interested: https://www.analogplanet.com/content/blue-note-records-announces-new-2021-2022-tone-poet-reissue-series-schedule I'm defin

Damn. I finally got a good estate sale haul. Lots of jazz, new wave, rock, folk, etc. 36 records in all. All seem to be original pressings. Some: Dave Brubeck- Time Out Cannonball

Acoustic Sounds is taking POs on that UHQR Kind of Blue on 33 (45 coming later). 6000 are ready to ship, they are taking POs for 25k. $100

 

 

 

 

Finally did a side by side comparison using this and an original mono pressing in VG+ condition. The original mono still wins. Don't know if it's because it's mono and this is stereo, but the tonal qualities are different and the OG sounds a bit less muted. I will say that I have no regrets buying this new version. It is beautiful and I highly recommend the high expense as it will be a jewel in any collection for years to come. My test to see if there can be a better version than the original has come to an end and as usual with old jazz records the original pressing won.

Mono vs. Stereo is an apples and oranges comparison, but I'm glad you're happy with both versions. I have the UHQR and it's a wonderful pressing. Also have the 2013 mono reissue and that too is incredible. But jazz in general I think sounds better in mono.

Real Gone has put up The Awakening "Mirage" and Henry Franklin "Skipper at Home". That Franklin record is the only title in the Black Jazz catalog that I don't own an original. It bugs the fuck out of me, but this will have to do for now. https://realgonemusic.com/collections/black-jazz/upcoming

Took a flier on a couple Horace Silver LPs today for $30. 

"Searching for the 27th Man"

"Silver's Serenade"

 

The Serenade is a legit first pressing in VG+ condition - deep groove in side one. I won on that flier - I knew the condition was good and I couldn't even get a repress of either at those prices, so too a shot and scored.

Searching for the 27th Man is good. I've had a copy before. Lame cover, great album.

I have posted in the buy/sell/trade forum also, but thought I would try here too. 

I am looking for a copy of the 2017 Presitige Pressing of Saxophone Colossus; the QPR pressing done by Kevin Gray. I missed it when it was on Amazon. 

If you have a spare, or would like to sell yours, please let me know. Would be shipped to Michigan, USA.

I wish I could post a simple video of my flea market pull today. 

A few of note...

Alice Coletrane with Strings

Pharoah - Thembi

Gary Bartz - Uhuru

Ahmad Jama - Freeflight

Donald Byrd - Black Byrd

Coltrane - Transitions

Lou Donaldson - Say it loud

Dexter Gordon - One Flight Up

 

Grabbed 16 lps with a few more coming my way from the seller - average price of $12 each. Vinyl is all VG+ or better, late 60s/early 70s pressings. A few covers had water damage etc - but at the pricing, I filled some major wants at a very fair price point. It's the reason I still hit flea markets.

All seem to be original pressings.

Some:

Dave Brubeck- Time Out

Cannonball Adderley - African Waltz

Miles Davis - In Person at the Blackhawk 6eye

Cal Tjader - Concert at the Campus on red vinyl and signed by Cal, Willie Bobo, Mongo Santamaria,  etc. The whole band!

That's awesome. I love me Soul Sauce and his Skye albums.

Reminder to myself that I need a copy of this in my life. Hard bop reissues are so hard to find. They're gone as soon as they're in stores.

Gang - 

The seller of those jazz records has some more and I'm getting a pick on Thursday. Not sure what value I'll maintain. If you have something in particular from 1970-1973 Bluenote/Impulse/Milestone - let me know and I'll look. I know it is picked over a bit but there is still solid stuff. I am promised a copy of Tyner's "Sahara" and Coleman's "Twins" for instance.

Some solid pick ups: 

Tyner "Sahara"

Coleman "Twins" white label promo

Yusef Lateef "Gentle Giant" WLP

Alice Coletrane "Eternity" (still in the shrink)

Donald Byrd "Street Lady"

Coleman "Live at Prince Street" - been wanting this as his loft was a few blocks from my office.

Jimmy Smith Groovin at Smalls..

 

A few others but pretty solid all around.

Not going to pretend to have been aware of this prior to the re-issue, but Strata East / P-Vine reissued (looks like they pressed a run last year and then again this year per Discogs) The Ensemble Al-Salaam ‎– The Sojourner; got my copy in yesterday and am on my second listen now, absolutely stunning spiritual jazz LP.

Anyone happen to know if Blue Note intends to repress Bobby Hutcherson's Oblique and/or The Kicker?

I believe they intend to keep all the Tone Poets and Classics in print, more or less, butpressing plants are so backed up right now that represses are slowly trickling in. Some of the early BN Classics titles are being restocked at a variety of vendors, e.g., Lee Morgan's Sidewinder.
