      Aren't you guys confusing Original Recordings Group and ORG Music- two different labels, aren't they?

        They are the same AFAIK.

        Website is orgmusic.com

        Label is original recordings groups: http://www.musicdirect.com/m-161-ori...ecording-group.

        ORG Music does both reissues and new music artists,

        Unless I am missing something.

        I always thought they were one and the same.

      If you scroll down in this link you will see a post by "Groovenoter" from Singapore, which i suspect emanates from Ying Tan (who also has a label called Groove Note- that's what those Vanessa Fernandez records were issued on, if memory serves).
      Here's what Groovenoter said: http://forums.stevehoffman.tv/thread...172467/page-11

        Yes that sure sounds like Ying but then the new website only contributes to the confusion. I knew he has a partner (s) when ORG started but that sounds like it was dissolved a while ago. I went back to my albums it says Original Recording Group on the back of the album. So I guess that is the correct title and I stand corrected.

        There were quite a few albums on Groove Note including Anthony Wilson, Bill Cunliffe and Jacintha. The GN are also available now on R2R tape.

          OK, maybe you are right, except for the statement I linked to - which implied that Ying has no direct involvement in ORG Music. But, as I said, I'm not trying to stir it up, I just seemed to remember there was a difference, including in some of the back catalog. Have that drink yet, Rob?

        Just received this note from Ying today answering Bill's question. The thread title has been edited accordingly! I have to say my mouth waters at the thought of the Bernard Herrmann and Bill Evans's Vol. 2 reissues!

        1. Groove Note is the label I started after departing Classic Records in the late 1990s and does mostly
        new original material from a variety of artists including Anthony Wilson, Bennie Wallace and Roy Gaines
        but is most famously associated with Singaporean chanteuse Jacintha (Here's To Ben, Autumn Leaves, Lush
        Life plus a few others). We recently just released the second Vanessa Fernandez album of Led Zepp covers:
        GRV1088 When the Levee Breaks. We also plan to release the entire GRV catalogue on reel to reel tape. We
        are incorporated in Singapore and are totally separate from ORG.

        2. I'm also one of the main partners in the Original Recordings Group aka ORG since late 2009. This is a pure
        reissue label and is also a separate company/entity from ORG Music. ORG Music is spinoff started by one of the
        original partners who left the company around 2011. Unfortunately the two overly similar names have caused a
        lot of confusion in the market. In any case here is the actual address for the ORG (currently under rebuild) website:
        http://originalrecordingsgroup.com/

        Upcoming ORG releases include the following titles: Diana Krall - Love Scenes, The Mysterious World of Bernard
        Herrmann, Bill Evans - Paris Edition Volume 2 and Bizet - Carmen Suites with Ansermet and SRO.

          I pulled out my Bernard Hermann Mysterious World record and cleaned it, but haven't listened to it yet (well, not for like 30 years). It is a Phase 4, with Decca style deadwax inscriptions, a made in Englend indication or two, but a US address on the cover. Were these imports? Or is this the same issue as the Decca v London thing on classical?

            I preordered the Bernard Hermann and Ansermet LPs and eagerly await those as well. Along with AP, GN and ORG are my favorite labels. And I think you guys know how I feel about Jacintha. :-)

            What do I know? But I prefer the Decca/Phase 4 release. Actually MOFI did a pretty respectable job with their release too.

              Well, I'm listening to my old "import" of the Bernard Hermann Mysterious World and it is quite impressive. Perhaps a little compressed, so that's where the ORG might shine and open things up even more. Man, I haven't listened to this record in decades!

                  The Four Faces of Jazz is excellent too as it Mysterious Film World (next to impossible to find) in the Decca Phase 4 release.

                    Here's an interview with Ying Tan in the Genesis distributor's store in Bangkok. The introduction is in Thai, but since Ying doesn't speak Thai (as far as I know.....) the interview actual is in English.

                    For what it's worth, it is possible to find the Decca Phase 4 of the Bernard Hermann recordings through English dealers; however, they are rare and priced accordingly. The U.S. London pressings are actually quite good and easy to find.

                      I purchased my Mysterious Film World through a UK dealer. Even there, that album is near impossible to get one's hands on. Don't know why. The other Herrmann Phase 4s are in plentiful supply.

                        I found a copy on ebay the seller was in Oz it was under 40 bucks incl shipping, I got off relatively cheap. btw, the sonics are noticeably better than the Londons. The music is simply thrilling, I love it.

                          $40 is a steal. It's a fabulous album and a reference here. Glad you said the sound is better than the US Phase 4s too. And it's a Wilkie recording.

                          Bill, ORG is reissuing a few titles from the Classic film Score series put out by RCA not the Bernard Hermanns. The RCAs were all conducted by Charles Gerhardt/NPO recorded at Kingsway Hall recorded by DECCA and engineered by none other than the great Wilkie. TMK, the Mysterious Film World of BH hasn't been reissued in decades, sorry for adding to the confusion.
