          Lucky you. I have the unfortunate / fortunate Monday delivery.
          I just hate receiving deliveries on Mondays when I know the item is sitting at the distribution hub a few miles down the road all weekend.
          Look forward to hear what everyone thinks of Fat Babies tape.

              My copies arrived today. I had some time to play them and just finished listening to both.

              The Fat Babies:
              As Jonathan mentioned, this is music from the 30's-40's. Cotton Club type music on the Fat Babies. It's fun to listen to, rhythmically engaging, and the band plays very well together. I like it - a Lot. It is something you listen to for the musical flow and content. In other words, often. Well done Jonathan.

              Joe Pass:
              Not much to say because it is Joe Pass. The band plays in the pocket and Joe does what Joe does best.

                Well I agree with Dre. I really like the music on The Fat Babies reel! I love swing, and this is that kind of jazz. Great stuff!!! And the sound is great.

                The Joe Pass is also terrific - it's actually spectacular sounding. And great classic era Joe Pass guitar jazz. This was a great pair and a great deal for these two tapes.

                  Just finished listening to my Fat Babies direct copy and Joe Pass. I agree on all counts-both are terrific! Fat Babies in particular- really well done and the direct master copy is exceptional I think. Thanks Jonathan!

                    Thank you all for your kind comments. If I may be so bold as to comment. The Fat Babies are fabulous musicians playing retro music of real joy. And the Pass has one of the greatest bass players ever, Albert Stinson, who unfortunately died of a drug overdose at age 24. Between Stinson, Pass and Clare Fischer on keyboards, it is a stellar performance. Glad you all enjoyed it.

                    Just received mine yesterday as I was leaving to a Paul McCartney concert, so I haven't played them as of yet, I am going to let the live experience wear off a little so I don't try to compare, thank God that audio memory is not long term as his concert ( dare I say it ) has the best sound that I have ever heard. It was a small venue for him a 20,000 seat arena. Just fantastic, crystal clear and sparkle everywhere.

                      Just finished listening to both and all I can say is (if you did not take advantage of this offer you really blew it.) Joe Pass is of course Joe Pass, the bass is incredible, just as Johnathan said it is. Fat babies well that is some real fun music, I just love it. Johnathan never disappoints, Great Job keep it coming, Johnathan.

                        I can't get over how terrific this Joe Pass tape is. One has to like jazz guitar of course, but assuming that, it's great stuff, and the sonics are absolutely first rate. Demo quality stuff from a 1963 recording. Just awesome.
