    I have to tell you, now having heard a test pressing, that you are gonna be BLOWN AWAY when you finally get your ears wrapped around Maiden Voyage. Ron and Kevin really out did themselves (and that's saying something from them). It may very well be the best LP Music Matters has put out (or should I say, will put out). The work on the 33 series is just outstanding, from the titles I've heard, but Maiden Voyage tops an impressive list.

    In my rush to listen to, and praise, Maiden Voyage, I neglected to ask. But once you hear this one, all thoughts of future releases will fly from your mind. All I want to do is listen to this LP over, and over, and over, and.......

    I don't see a 33rpm of Maiden Voyage on the Music Matters list. It's in the works then?

    Test pressings have been sent to reviewers. It's not yet available for sale.

    Yes. It's coming. And it'll be well worth the wait.

    I'm guessing Robert Hutton violated a press embargo when he blogged about this several weeks ago and then quickly removed it.

    Do you know how many of these test pressings are sent out on a normal basis?

    Very exciting news. Can we expect any others that are not listed on their website's "preview list"?
    Off hand, with the release of Maiden Voyage, Music Matters will have almost covered Hancock's entire 60's BN output. The only one they'd be missing is "My Point of View". C'mon Music Matters, seal the deal!

    No idea. We've got three sources now who claim to have heard test pressings of this record.

    This is excellent - to continue the journey on 33's . Count me in and I will certainly get maiden voyage (even though I have the AP).

    I'm very excited about Maiden Voyage. It's one of the all time great jazz albums, IMHO.

    Music Matters still has Andrew Hill's Point of Departure for sale at the regular price, though it's for sale at an inflated price or out of stock everywhere else. Highly recommended, especially for mid-60s fans.

    Will this new 25 records series come after the 12 currently going on?

    Or it will begin now?

    Any extended info?

    There's not a lot of info yet, but sounds like it'll be the 12 titles already announced plus a further 13 titles. 25 total in celebration of Blue Note's 75th. I'd love to be wrong, though, and get a further 25 titles.

    In the TAS article about Maiden Voyage the pictured master tape is for Art Blakey's Indestructible. It seems like that will be getting a 33 rpm reissue as well?

    I can't wait to see the new list... Indestructible is my favorite jazz album outside of A Love Supreme, but I really hope to see more titles that haven't been done yet.

    I understand to promote the first 33rpm series that some classic albums would have a new release ...like Soulstation, Cool Struttin... but if they really gonna re-release other 45rpm albums from Musicmatters itself that would be a pity and a slap in the face of the 45rpm subscribers...

    Well I guess the current releases must be a "slap in the face" for AP subscribers then, I don't think it's an issue, I think that mostly these are selling to a different audience and personally I'm really hoping they do "Out To Lunch" and more Grant Green.

    I agree they could do the Out Of Prints and the AP 45rpm's, but the whole serie of 113 MM albums again on 33rpm that would be a pity.
    The Blue Note catalog is over 400 albums, so there are a lot of other albums that could be remastered...
