    I don't think you can ever go wrong with Ben Webster. He is one of my favourite sax players and I have yet to find a bad recording of his. That being said, I wouldn't say 'Gone with the Wind' is a must have. There are a lot of albums of his that I would consider more essential. But if I was you, I would stream the album on Spotify or look it up on Youtube and see what you think.

    I don't own this pressing btw, so can't comment on the sound quality etc.

    I discovered Ben Webster through this Club, I love his music and while he is not my favorite sax player, I agree with everything speedracer says here.

    I do have a copy of this and it sounds great and is the high quality product I have come to expect from Org and Black Lion.

    So, any tips for fixing the too small center hole on MEC? Most of the time I can force them a bit but can't even do that with this one.

    I usually take a knife or one side of scissors and rotate it slightly, for a second, in the center whole to make it slightly bigger.

    @craigdino just chimed in over in Rising with utility knife working too.

    Whatever method you use be sure to blow off debris and give it another clean before playing. You don’t want to create an artifact!

    I'm going to echo the opinions of other posters on here. Ben Webster was a saxophone titan, one of the most influential tenor players of all time and certainly one of the first true innovators of the instrument. Up there with Coleman Hawkins and Chu Berry. He's got such a conversational tone yet he could be blisteringly fast.

    GWTW isn't essential but it's splendid.

    It is my understanding that a-b is having less to do with functions of the store and focusing more on curating the store

    It seems like they are responding more in the 24-48 hours

    Does anyone know if there is any difference in the Black Angels 'Passover' release here vs the LIT version?

    In the meantime, I can tell you there are at least 30 copies.

    @Mather I think you should check out that Warpaint on sale and lemme know what you think.. I think it's pretty underrated, if you enjoy things in the same vein as Portishead, you could dig it. It peters off after the first 6/7 songs, but they're reaaaaally strong tunes. Not entirely a "steal" at that price, but with free shipping it's standard. ME LIKES THE GIRLY TRIPHOP
