    Default Jazz at 33RPM (D'agostini partworks series)

    Anyone else got sucked in?
    out of all the albums so far there's only one I'm struggling with - Eric Dolpy's Out To Lunch.
    But so far the pressings are really good, and the facsimile covers and labels are great. Only the Brubeck Time Out label looks a bit fake ( Orange CBS with Square )
    I reckon for most Jazz fans all of these will be standards, but as an introduction to the genre, it's pretty good. Cashing in on the hipsterness of vinyl being back in vogue.

    it's been going for a while now.
    All 180g vinyl, facsimile covers and labels

    So far:

    Miles Davis - Kind of Blue
    John Coltrane - Slow Train
    Billie Holiday - Lady in Satin
    Charlie Parker - Now's the Time
    Cannonball Adderley - Something Else
    Dave Brubeck Quartet - Time Out
    Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong - Ella and Louis
    Eric Dolphy - Out to Lunch
    Ellinton / Mingus / Roach - Money Jungle
    Stan Getz / Joao Gilberto - Getz/Gilberto
    Charlie Mingus - Mingus Ah Um

    Closest I'll ever get to owning Columbia 'Six Eyes' pressings for example.

    I didn't bother. Eric Dolphy was obviously Out to Lunch when he made that album. It really is a tad difficult.
    20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon

    I wish the Sound engineer had been out to a long lunch all day that day

    Kenny brought the Brubeck one over the other night, excellent quality pressing, like you I have the ones I want already, but if you don't these are the real deal.

    Funny thing I just realized, is I love that Brubeck album, but have yet to hear it on my new speakers. Guess tnat record's been taking a Time Out.

    I think the main point of these is to build up a collection of well known jazz albums.
    Fans will already know then intimately.
    Many will buy then because it's so difficult to get a clean original copy. Many will buy them to discover them for the first time.
    As the prof says, the quality is superb.
    And for 15 quid each delivered.
    I think there's supposed be 100 releases in the series, so there's bound to be a few duffers. Like the Dolphy. Can't win em all

    Still going strong with this
    So far there have only been 3 releases that I'm not that keen on: The Eric Dolphy one, I've mentioned before.
    Ornette Coleman - New In New York. and an Albert Ayler one. both of which are pretty strange. I can't figure out any melody or rhythm in either. maybe I'll give them another try in a few months.
    But in in the main the releases are pretty good
