Original pressed jazz rarities…
1981 Japanese 6-track vinyl LP, housed in a picture sleeve with Japanese insert & obi-strip, still in the original ‘Coming To Japan’ stickered open shrink. The sleeve shows little of its age & the vinyl looks barely played! More info MILES DAVIS The Man With The Horn: here
Classic jazz, original and high end audio reissues…… 1999 US remastered 7-track CD album released as part of the ‘RVG’ [Rudy Van Gelder] series, promo stickered glossy card picture slipcase sleeve. Great sounding reissue of this legendary album. The sleeve shows very little wear and the disc appears ‘as new’, more info WAYNE SHORTER Speak No Evil: here
Jazz reissues, new releases and vintage pressings with prices to suit all……
1988 French 12-track LP, featuring original Verve recordings by Bird from the late forties, early fifties, digitally remastered and including everyone from Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Lester Young and Thelonious Monk, picture sleeve. The sleeve has a slight seam split along the top edge, otherwise the sleeve is excellent and the vinyl looks barely played, more info CHARLIE PARKER Bird: here
High end audio CDs….
Rare 1997 US limited edition 5-track Audiophile 20 bit remastered 24ct Gold CD, originally released in 1962 and recorded in 1957 with Jimmy Knepper, Curtis Porter, Clarence Shaw, Bill Triglia, Danny Richmond, Frankie Dunlop, Ysabel Morel and Lobbie Elder; fold-out picture sleeve with sleeve notes by Charles himsels and Martin Williams, extremely collectable, very hard to find edition of this audiophile quality issue, not to be missed!

Ultimate Jazz, rare originals…..
1958 US 7-track second issue black vinyl mono LP on the magenta Tampa label, also featuring Russ Freeman on piano, Ben Tucker on bass & Gary Frommer on Drums, front pasted picture sleeve. Recorded in a rare moment in the fifties when he was not in Jail, you can see even in these early sessions that whatever his personal problems, he projected soul whenever he played, as perfected in his mid seventies comeback albums after a long period in rehab.
