LOVE JACK TEAGARDEN! His trombone mastery was astonishing and I LOVE his singing, he's one of my all time favorite singers. I think i have every official release of his I could ever find, and a few unofficial as well. . . .

On the LP I just listened to there were some cuts of duets with Louis Armstrong...very nice.  Mark.

Lon, on those Billie Holiday LPs...in my buy I got both Volume 1 and 2 of "The Golden Years", I think each is 3 LPs.  I hope all the LPs are in as good shape as the one spinning. (The boxes are falling apart)  I have some of this material on the late 80's LP reissues, and you are right...the quality of the sound on this 1966 LP is  far superior...much quieter.  Mark.

This next LP is in horrible shape...it wasn't even listed in those I bought...it was a freebie.  I'm only playing side one because side two is even worse.  I'll see how a good cleaning can improve this...but I'm not expecting miracles. That being said, the music on this 1968 stereo LP is great and I can even tell the recording was done well.  Although these are tracks with ABC with strings, orchestra,etc.  My favorites are the more R&B/Soul Atlantic recordings.  Mark.

Next LP is a 1971 Italian release of 1940 recordings of Sidney Bechet...sound quality isn't the best but it's from 1940 after all.  Mark.

Yes, when Miles "retired" in '76 or so Columbia put out several two lp collections of odds and ends and this was one of them.

Some great stuff that was just sitting in the can.

I couldn't believe these when they came out, they had stuff from the 'fifties through the 'seventies. . . from about '72 on I was addicted to Miles' music and when it stopped it was great to have these released. Another fine one was "Directions," and then there was 'Plugged Nickel" and "Round the World."

Mark, if it was a Roulette lp . . .it was probably Don Goldie doing his Louis Armstrong impersonation. He was VERY good at recreating Louis. I've been fooled before by his imitation.

Lon, I just looked up the credits/discography for the Roulette JT Box and you are absolutely right...Don Goldie is the only other vocalist.  Jack fooled me when he called him Pops...or at least I thought he did....great stuff.

A lot of those guys called each other Pops, it's a thing they did, it's respect.

My best male friend in the world is a trumpeter in Austin, Dave Laczko. We call each other Pops. It's fun!

Dave is part of a duo that sometimes expands to trio and quartet and beyond, called WD-41.

Next, LP #6 of this Mosaic Set...The Complete Capitol Fifties Jack Teagarden Sessions (# 168) I've noticed some variability in the thickness/heaviness of the Mosaic LPs.  The Herbie Nichols' LP was thinner and a bit warped but playable, this one is heavier, 180gm?, and very flat. I would have thought Mosaic would have used at least 180gm Vinyl for their Limited Edition and very expensive sets.  Mark.

Mark, When Mosaic started out hardly anyoone was doing 180 gram for lp releases, but it was starting out in the audiophile world. Nichols is one of the earliest sets and on standard vinyl. A bit later Mosaic moved to what they called "QLPs" which were the 180 gram variety. So early Mosaic sets on lp weren't 180 gram, somewhere after the frist 25 sets or so they switched (and upped the price).

Thanks, Pops...

PS...Lon, I went to Mosaic's website to investigate further. The first 42 sets 101 to 142) were the non-180 gm Vinyl and and are listed as MR on the LPs. Starting with set 143, Charles Mingus' 1959 CBS Recordings, they are referred to as MQ on the record. In the listings they were referred to as below...But there were still a couple sets not made with the 180gm Q Vinyl after #142 and at some point they made most sets with only CD versions.
#142 The Complete CBS Studio Recordings of Woody Shaw (3 CDs or 4 LPs)
#143 The Complete 1959 CBS Charles Mingus Sessions (4 Q-LPs)

PSS...on looking further at the OOP section, there are a lot not designated with the Q-LP label...I hope they just didn't list it correctly.  For example, Bill Evans' Complete 1980  10 LP at the Village Vanguard Box only has the LP not the Q-LP designation...that would be a shame if true. Mark.
