Fully licensed reissue, strictly limited to 1000 copies worldwide.
All sleeves are authentic reproductions of the original pressings, including front-laminated flipbacks.
Each album also includes a printed and polylined inner sleeve styled after the advertisement inner sleeves included in the original releases.
Includes full colour, 8 page booklet.
Although some of the sleeves state mono, the audio is actually in stereo on these albums.
The albums contained in the box set do not have an 'X' after the catalogue number on the label, unlike the later individual repressed versions of these LPs which are catalogued JMANLP 106X, JMANLP 107X etc
After some trouble finding it, I finally got it and I must say I'm amazed by this box set. I had always found that Jazzman Records pressings were noisy with a lot of flaws but here ? Top notch pressings, silent vinyl even in the quieter moments, with a good polylined innersleeve (finally). Sound is very dynamic and crisp, and the covers are well-made, with a love for the detail. Congrats to Jazzman !
I personally don't mind the flippers. A flipper is just someone who purchased a record and sells it faster than the average, right? How different is it from us? Do you really think they won't sleep because people complain on this thread?
If someone here sells it in 2 years , is she/he a (slow) flipper? Tell me.
That's the rule of the game, deal with it. If you love vinyls you know the deal. If you find a rare record at a garage sales, are you going to resell it for the price you paid it there? Or will you try to sell it at the maximum current price you could, checking its value on Discogs? You do do that everytime, for your house, for your family expenses, for your collections etc...
Unless you are a saint or a millionaire or in an urgent need of money you will do as every seller does: buy cheap and sell high. Flippers on Discogs are music lovers I have no doubt about it. But they are also music traders . I like discussing with them (some have physical shops), they have a lot of knowledge to share and I'm learning/feeding from them (blogs, websites, stores, comments etc). They sometimes contribute to the community by adding releases. Making money is just their way of living, cannot criticize it, can you? Some are not professional too and they want to finance their other music purchases (at least that's their belief, I think they are wrong though)
I would say that it's up to the labels to make sure flippers don't flip, because human nature is...well you know ;-) By a better control of their new releases they could avoid damages like the one below. I'm not mad someone here is trying to sell at £800. Why not, it's funny (a bit frustrating if you don't have the release I can reckon it).
I don't have the release. I wanted it so bad. My order got cancelled. I put a pretty bad comment here (it has been censored since) about Jazzman, because I thought a better work could have been done. Maybe I'm wrong. But guess what I moved on. I realize I could live without it. I just had a childish reaction but life goes on, my money will go elsewhere. Fabulous music is everywhere so let's enjoy.... let flippers be flippers if that's their wishes, just be yourself, be smart and think with your wallet.
