Hey Mark, yeah, that IS part of the new 'US Albums" box set, but also available separately. I didn't get the box set, just this one release from that. I really am not that big a Beatles fan, and like you I enjoy the later works best. I do have the Mono box and most of the stereo releases from 2009 separately. I wanted this one on cd because I loved the album, even though I think I have all the material or almost all of it in the same mixes from the 2009 releases.

"Old Brown Shoe" and "The Ballad of John and Yoko" sounded like old friends on this album (and in this sequencing).

You're right, this new box set has stereo and mono versions on the same disc of 11 lps I think, but this one was only released officially in stereo, so there's only stereo mixes on this one (though I think each track was on a single, and appeared in mono; they are in mono on the Mono box set's "Past Masters.") One other album, "The Beatles Story" is only available in stereo as this too was only released in stereo. That album will only be (apparently) available in the box set, not separately; it's an interview album.

Back in the Listening Cave.  I'm listening to Sarah Vaughn's album "After Hours" but this is one of three different LPs on three different Labels with this title.  This particular one was issued by Columbia Records and has recordings from 1949 to 1951.  Mark.

Next I'm going to listen to the following albums out of the "The Complete Emarcy Recordings of Clifford Brown".   I'll skip the alternates and stick with the masters.  I'm trying to decide if I want to buy the 4 LP set of Brown and Roach's Quintet. This music is fantastic.  Mark.

Emarcy MG36008  Brown And Roach, Incorporated
Emarcy MG36036  Clifford Brown And Max Roach
Emarcy MG36037  Study In Brown
Emarcy MG36070  Clifford Brown And Max Roach At Basin Street

Right now I'm listening to the neck pickup of my newest guitar, a guitar built by luthier Troy Post inspired by the Doug Irwin "Wolf."

Lon,  I'm not sure what you're talking about but that is a beautiful thing to behold.

I'm still making my way through Clifford Brown/ Max Roach Quintet material.  Mark.

Mark, it is a beautiful guitar. Back in the early 'seventies a young guitar builder sold a guitar to Jerry Garcia that became known as "Wolf". . . it had some pretty innovative features such as a "hippy sandwhich" body of various woods, and a neck through design. Over the years this guitar has been copied by many builders, and this is a young luthier named Troy Post's simplified (and not expensive) version, black walnut with a poplar binding layer, and I had him put in the same pickups that Garcia had settled on in it, Dimarzio SDS-1 and 2 Super 2 humbuckers.

This is the real Wolf:

Taking a break from Clifford.  I have this Sarah Vaughn album on.  It's the last of four in the "Complete Columbia Albums Collection". Definitely not a favorite.  It was recorded in 1987, it's more Smooth Jazz/Pop, heavily produced with strings etc, as many albums of the time were.  But it's still that glorious voice.  Mark.

OMG. I tried so hard to get this when it was released (a few years before the US version) and it was just impossible. Saw this very reasonably priced on amazon market and went for it. Gold cds, seven of them, sealed box set, less than 100 dollars, that's less than when it was released by far. I crossed my fingers that it was the real deal, came today. . . it's da bomb. So nice to finally have it (even though I've had the US version since release; this one has solos edited out of a half dozen tracks and a mellower sound).

Lon, that picture of "Wolf" reminded me of Warren Haynes' Symphonic Tribute to Jerry where he played Jerry's guitar with various symphonies...none close enough to me to go but I did catch some clips from fans on you tube.  Here's one, there are plenty more. Mark.

PS...Lon, in your post above...what albums are you talking about?

I don't do youtube, but yeah, I know the concert series you were talking of.

It's such an awesome guitar Wolf is. Glad it's getting used.

I forgot to add the image Mark, it's the Japanese gold cd edition of Complete at the Plugged Nickel, which came out a few years before the US version.

So Lon,  I have the Plugged Nickel box from 1995.  How's this one different?  I haven't listened to it in over a decade.  Mark.

Different mastering, done by a Japanese engineer. And there are solos (piano or sax) edited out of a half a dozen of the selections, not sure why. These seven discs are about ten minutes shorter in total than the US set. So having that, you don't need this.

Another break from Clifford...I'd forgotten how good he was. This Miles album after which I have one more from the Mono box, "Porgy and Bess"  and I will have listened to them all.  I highly recommend it to Miles fans or those new to his Music...very good.  Mark.
