Same six arrived two days ago...
Got my 6 today, as expected the same as everybody else's. Damn this Mingus album rocks, playing now. That's the only new one of the 6, but no regrets.
Comparing to my first batch of 10, I definitely feel like these are a rougher set, only half of them sealed, some of the covers a bit damaged, etc. I still give the Zavvi effort 10/10 overall, for £52 incl shipping I've gotten 11 absolutely amazing albums and now have 5 to give away to friends which they will love (despite the slight wear and year on the covers). But it looks like this was probably the tail end for them, given that everyone got exactly the same selection and the condition seems a bit worse than the earlier sets.
They will all be held in 2 weeks hotel quarantine due to our Mutant Ninja Coronavirus!
Delivered today, Just in time Christmas. Same six, only the ones with Mingus on bass were in shrink wrap. But all in great condition.
Got mine today too, just in time to give my doubles away for Xmas! Hooray!
Oh and I got 3 sealed, 3 open. All look fine though.
I ordered the 6 set and just received it. Mine differs with Time Out - Dave Brubeck instead of Somethin Else. This was the only one that was unsealed.
Wow, finally some variation!
Is this the first Brubeck spotted in the wild?
Yeah big plot twist! After reading loads of these lists in order to decide whether it's worth getting a second set earlier, I think it is also the first one that doesn't include Somethin' Else
Yes he got something else!
I found mine under the Christmas tree this morning with Time Out instead of Somethin' Else. The only one that wasn't sealed.
Santa did a swap as he had a duplicate of Time Out!
Getz/Gilberto - S/T (got)
Cannonball Adderley - Somethin' Else (got) - sealed
Eric Dolphy - Out to Lunch - sealed
Ellington/Mingus/Roach - Monkey Jungle - sealed
Dexter Gordon - Go
Charles Mingus - Mingus Ah Um
"Monkey Jungle", the really rare misprint.
Yeah, strangely many people seem to make that typo when reporting these lists (some contextual auto-correct on the phone maybe?). If I got a dodgy grey market pressing with that actual text I'd probably keep it for the laughs...
Still waiting on my second set. I could be waiting a while.
iPhone autocorrected indeed
You hum it and I'll play it....
Finally they posted my 27/11 order just now ...
Mine arrived today after my hastening email.
And they're back, this time 6 for £34.95, and don't forget search for the free P&P code.
Fool me 3 times, shame on you. Fool me a fourth time, shame on me. Won't get fooled again.
I put my spare six on eBay for £19.99
So for those that have ordered off the US site, are they D’Agnostini or public domain (Waxtime, Dol, etc)?
