MPS Announces Ten Vinyl Jazz Reissues

Dirk Sommer who did such an excellent job overseeing the recent MPS Oscar Peterson box set gave me a list of ten new MPS reissues coming in 2015.

The titles are:

Oscar Peterson: Walking the Line
Bill Evans: Symbiosis
Baden Powell: Images on Guitar
Clark Terry: Clark After Dark
The Count Basie Orchestra: High Voltage
Dizzy Gillespie:20th and 30th Anniversary
Freddie Hubbard:The Hub of Freddie Hubbard
Joe Henderson:Mirror, Mirror
Monty Alexander:Live at Montreux
Singers Unlimited:Peterson in Tune

Boy, I would be ALL over this if they would at least respond to my inquiries about non-fill on Travelin' On LP VI from the new Exclusively for My Friends Box Set. I sent them a detailed email. First in English, then in German. No response in either instance. Makes me wonder if this "Audiophile" label really stands behind their product. Questionable to say the least.

What? You've only tried to contact them twice? This seems to be an epidemic. Heavenly Sweetness is the worst. I contacted them via their website 7 times, with a very reasoned, detailed, non-accusatory inquiry regarding two Blue Note reissues I purchased that may have been the worst pressings I've ever seen. Not a single response. Same thing with a pair of Sandy Bull LP's on Sutro Park that were equally horribly pressed and transferred, this time five metered, non-accusatory inquiries looking for assistance. Nary a response. Hell, even a "Sod off!" would have been preferable to complete silence.

So much for trying to support small labels and local brick-and-mortar record stores with a "No Returns" policy. Sad.
