    KOB 45rpm UHQR is up at acoustic sounds 

    weird because chad said that wasn’t the next UHQR. 

     They did mistakenly go live with a Steely Dan UHQR a couple weeks ago though. So who knows if KOB is really the next one or not.  Says it’s shipping Monday so maybe it is

    NEVA mind. :lol:

    Which Dan???
    Katy lied.  It was numbered UHQR 12

    People  were able to preorder before it was removed 


    That's really interesting.  Katy Lied is the album that the band hated the sound.  And I agree,  it's the worst of my Dan Og's.  Do you know if it's a fresh mix and master? I would love to have a better version of this record.  I love the songs on it.  Although that's a low bar,  since I love everything the Dan does.  

    Will you let me know when it hits again if you see it? I don't want to miss that one.  
    If it goes up I’ll let you know. 

    It’s got to be redone or why release it? I always thought the issues were in the masters though.  It’ll be interesting to see what they did to it as I think it’s pretty surely being released at some point since they posted it.  It’s 20k copies 
    I'm not sure if it's the mix or the master.  But AP has high standards so in Chad We Trust.   
    Are you getting the 45 KOB?  I think I'm passing.  I have 2 of the 33s and two 45s from MOFI. I really don't like this record spread across 4 sides. It's kind of like Dark Side to me.  That could never be a 45.  Plus,  how much better can it get?  The 33 is stunning.

    I got rid of my mofi 45 so yeah.  The 33 Uhqr sounded better than the mofi to me. 

    Digital or not, I still like mofi one steps though minus the horrible packaging (KOB isn’t one obviously) so that’s not why I sold it

    Guess this is new too.

    I checked, Tull,Davis 33, Hendrix AYE don’t have this in the box minus the explanation of the process

    Every UHQR will be hand inspected upon pressing completion, and only the truly flawless will be allowed to go to market. Each UHQR will be packaged in a deluxe box and will include a booklet detailing the entire process of making a UHQR along with a hand-signed certificate of inspection.

    Chad posted a video and said the next 2 UHQR’s are almost ready. It’s in the new KOB video.

    I don’t think it’s Dan though. It’s Bob Marley

    No idea. He said “very limited”
    Dan was supposedly 20k so my guess is Rastaman Vibration and something else 

    I can’t see a situation where they can get another huge run through anytime soon. KOB is still only 1/2 pressed 

    chad seems to be all over the place though. A few months ago he basically said jazz stuff, now it appears not. I also think the first UHQR’s way back in 2013 were supposed to be Bill Evans vanguard/Debby and that never happened either at least that I ever saw.  They have the rights, that’s a no brainer

    The various versions of KOB

    interesting because the classic and AP should sound the same as they used the same metal parts.

    however pressing, profiles, vinyl formulations yield differences 

    its an interesting watch with both chad and the founder of classic

  • Good reviews coming in. However I doubt most have opened. That’s not dust.

    Lots of this kind of stuff, warps etc.  not great by RTI.
    skipping using  gatefolds probably contributes 

    if you buy it, open it

    That's from the Riverside box?

    They will replace it.  Too bad too.  Waltz for Debbie is great.

    I went to the Birdland in NYC on Wed night for a show.  It ended up being a quintet (one alto, one tenor player) that played Giant Steps by Coltrane end to end.  It was really lovely.  They were great, especially this older Asian lady that just ripped the Wynn Kelly piano parts!  

    Can't beat live Jazz in NY.  It just feels right.

    I’m through 8 of 11

    obviously that one is getting replaced. I’m no where near an overly picky person but when the scuffs affect play I’m getting it addressed.

    TBH most of them have way more scratches than I’d expect from AP. 

    3,000 boxes, 22 records per is 66,000 records and 132,000 playing sides so clearly it’s a lot to pack carefully 

    im having to be selective in what I’m going to ask for replacements of though as it’s a lot otherwise 

    im letting minor warps go

  • Also FWIW explorations is the sleeper hit for me.

    I’ve never had that on vinyl. It’s got tracks from trio 65 and montreaux on it that are some of my favorite tunes.
    same tracks with Scott LaFaro makes a big difference.

    Scott Lafaro was amazing, which is why I really like the Sunday at the Village and Waltz stuff.  What a tragedy that he was gone so young.
