  • I saw today that the second run of the Royal Ballet (Quality Records reissue) is already sold out. I wonder if that is it or will there be a third run ?

      I think the wording of some of the info (Fremer?) on this is a bit confusing. The record is shown as 'in stock' at Acoustic Sounds.

      This was made with the old metal parts from Classic Records. Perhaps AS would have to recut again if doing another run?

      Yes,I bought two from the initial run, also two of the Venice gatefold release. The albums really are top quality in all respects.

  • Only two MMJ BN releases that I am missing. Have all the rest in 45rpm and a handful at 33 rpm. These are only 33 rpm.

    Wished MMJ did the two Kenny Burrell releases but Joe said the tapes didn't sound very good. The CR release sounded plenty good enough for me.

    • Anyone heard this album by Cecile Salvant? Came very highly recommended last weekend? Not sure if analog or digital recording but LP was cut by Kevin Gray.

        I own it. Love the performer and material but as I remember the vinyl was noisy :-(

        It seems side 1 was problematic because of non-fill. Sides 2-4 apparently were better. Was that what you experienced Mark?

    • Audio Fidelity announced this, I cant wait. the gold RBCD Steve Hoffman mastered for DCC blew away all vinyl comers. Leon fans that like theirs analog will most def want this record.

          U2 is one of my all time favorite bands and certainly one of the all time best live acts. The band is just electric.

          That said, the original recordings were never anything to write home about sonically. Have them on both CD, LP and even MOFI reissued CD. I assume given the vintage, everything was a digital based recording to start with.

              • Coming in May from Intervention Records. AAA from 1/2-inch master tape. Reportedly with low end original never had. Might have to plunk down the money to check it out. Oh yes Parsons and Hillman from the Byrds.

                    Nevermind, I see that both of them are actually Prestige. Cool, I'm a subscriber and an Eric Dolphy fan and these are shipping next week...

                        Fone has been doing them for a little while at least. Maybe before MOFI if I'm right. The old Gale label were also single step. Most of their recordings were ho hum but the Percussion album is superb.
