    I'd actually love to hear your impressions of playing one of these "dirty".

    It sounds like these may not live up to the hype when compared to other quality represses.

    The issue is the original MM’s are already pretty fantastic - however I do feel Ron was able to squeeze out the last iota of performance possibly from these tapes. The srx 33’s I bought were all of 45’s I didn’t have but wanted anyway, and they were cheaper than current prices. Plus they sound fantastic, very easy to enjoy.

    These will be my first dabble in MM. I have a few AP reissues that ive been impressed with. My jazz collection mostly consists of Craigslist finds of early pressings which have usually had a long life before I found them. I certainly prefer the sound quality in the new, high quality reissues, but there is no better feeling than finding rare or expensive jazz titles in good shape for $1-2 a piece.

    Awesome picks! When did you place your order? I'm trying to estimate a date of arrival for my records.

    Placed them on Jan 1. Arrived this morning. Not too bad especially being shipped from LA to Detroit.

    Also, the Tone Poet releases have dipped in price on Amazon by 3 and change.





    EDIT: Clicking through will show current price of $31.57

    Chick is available for pre-order on Amazon UK now too. Decent mark-up on US price unfortunately but still a bit better than importing.



    I'm guessing Wayne will become available soon to, there's already a placeholder.

    Nothing on Amazon France. Amazon Australia is selling the records at a very good price (±30€), in Germany it's at ±43€!

    I can confirm that the 3 SRX titles I ordered sound flawless. Word on the street is that the ones I didn't order (yet) sound absolutely horrific so you all should just pass and not waste your money (until I order them)...
