Japo Records

Profile:
In 1967, Manfred Scheffner started a mailorder business for jazz LPs which he named "jazz by post" (JAPO) at Elektro-Egger, an electric appliances store in Munich-Pasing, Germany. In 1969 a record store was added that by the end of the 70s had become the leading jazz record shop in Germany.

In addition to selling records, JAPO acted as a jazz label. JAPO LPs were produced by Thomas Stöwsand, Steve Lake (2), Manfred Eicher (of ECM Records) or by the artists themselves and published in the ECM Verlag. The JAPO mailorder and record store went out of business in 1989 when Manfred Scheffner (now retired) changed to the clothing department store "Ludwig Beck" (located at Marienplatz in Munich), where he built up a jazz department ("jazz is beck") which today is the biggest Jazz (and Classical) CD store in Germany. The JAPO label with its back catalog was taken over by ECM Records.

I am looking for this album: and finally this other gem happens that these vinyl are fdentro other more extensive packages of different authors and composers and I just want those mentioned below, which are of course the record label Japo Germany, I just want recorded in flac format or MP3 files do not want to buy vinyl because before buy about 30 of the collection and then sold it and left me without a copy of this excellent music, from already thank you and I apologize for the intensity of my order, long life and prosperity.
