  • Birth of The Cool Reissue Gets A Thumbs Down!

    Yes I have run into these record label people who simply don’t care and will foist any piece of slop on the public. Thankfully they don’t last because people do care about quality.
    First off, UMe touts this reissue as "...newly remastered from the original 1949 analog tapes for the first time since 1957." That's nonsense: Bernie Grundman cut this from the original analog tapes for Classic Records back in the 2000s. And I believe the RVG CD did as well (correct me if I'm wrong). Facts matter.

        that's what discogs is for, plenty of buyers over there don't read AP unless they google for reviews...
