    Yesterday basically all I did was go to Amoeba and go to Roscoe's. Got the Obama and a breast on the side.

    Thanks man. It's an inconceivable life. 3 years ago this time I was working in a cubicle at a b2b publication. Today I was at Capitol towers for 4 hours.

    Bummer but you can’t get them all I guess. Thanks for the response!

    I'd die if this Brazilian music thing includes some Os Mutantes or like A Tabua de Esmerelda (already have a Brazilian copy of Forca Bruta and a nice reissue of Ben's 1969 s/t), Veloso would be unbelievable too.

    Haha, indeed, it never truly stops. But wow would a nice pressing of Estudando o Samba in particular thrill my soul.

    Please x10. Not to mention Your Queen Is a Reptile is already in need of a repress after the mess Universal made of it.

    The two I bought (both Jorge Ben) are ok but I heard similar things about the whole serie that is not always good. I would recommend if you can avoid shipping costs. I bought mine from Mr Bongo last summer for a fair price so I'M happy with them.

    @Storf A couple questions about the Jimmy McGriff - Soul Sugar exclusive. (Nice pick btw)

    1) Is this a true VMP exclusive or just a variant?

    2) Either way, can we get mastering info about it?

    3) It says the label is Blue Note in the store Nutrition Facts, but is that just a mistake in the store or is there more to it? I know McGriff had other records on Blue Note, but I thought Soul Sugar was on Capital. I realize they are both under the EMI / Universal umbrella, but it kinda seems weird to assign it to Blue Note well after the fact.

    Again, great pick - Thanks!

    Fairly sure this was remastered by Kevin Gray. We called them out of the blue on it and asked to do this; not sure if they're doing a version or not. It's on Capitol, so I'll get our folks to change it.

    How's my social media game when it comes to showing what I'm listening to on instagram stories? Too much or chef's kiss?

    @Storf

    Curious about the records in the Brazil bundle:

    Are they remastered?

    How about weight?

    Thanks!

    @Storf I was delighted to see you include Ambrose Akinmusire's Origami Harvest in the best of 2018 article. It's in my top 2 or 3 albums this year and gets better each time I listen.

    I'm wondering, given VMP's relationship with Blue Note and the fact that Origami Harvest hasn't yet got a vinyl release, if there's any thought being given to doing something with it in the future?

    Haha I haven't been around here long enough to fully interpret this but a "no comment" isn't a "no" so I'll take it! :ROFLMAO::ROFLMAO:

    Hey @Storf how much of the recent duty nonsense for international members has been Saddle Creek screwing up declarations forms?

    Not shipping. The import duties on their end. Or was that the question you were answering?

    P.s. just clarifying because inter webs.
