Acquiring Music UK/Overseas Online Stores

Hey all. I'm sure someone has already done this/posted about this before... but I'm looking to purchase some music from the Amazon MP3 UK store, since this album is not available in the US. Is someone interested in an even trade/PayPal transaction and would be willing to give me a hand? :) Posting t...

Re: Remy & Alice - Seoul Lindyfest 2018

You sir are a gentleman and a scholar. Thank you.

Upon an initial search it appears a hard CD or digital copy of said album is not available for purchase online at the moment. I'll have to keep my ear to the wall.

[Answered] Sent for You Yesterday, Basie, 1945-05-14

Hey all, been a while since I posted but I'd love some help ID'ing a song. Remy & Alice are dancing to a version of Sent For You Yesterday by Count Basie that I haven't heard before. Perhaps from a Mosaic set or the Savory Collection? Can anyone confirm this? :) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-hpn...

Re: [Answered] St Louis Blues, Teddy Stauffer

It would link to the version off of this album, which is not the same.
Thanks!

[Answered] St Louis Blues, Teddy Stauffer

Hey all,

Doing my best to try and ID this version of St. Louis Blues. Shazam insists this is the Original Teddies version, however that is clearly wrong.
Any ideas?

Re: Lindyfest 2017 - Todd & Natalia

Of course! I have the CD but I guess I haven't listened to that track enough. Thank you!

Re: Peter Davis & Lindy Hop Heaven CDs

I did indeed contact Peter Davis about his CDs last summer but totally forgot to follow up here. My bad! Here is Peter's response: I'm afraid I'm the only one that has some copies.... they're a million seller - there's a million in my cellar. The first LHH cd - I only have a few of those.... So if ...

Only on CD: Albums/Collections You've Snatched

I wanted to put a question out there to the DJs. There's a ton of great music both in digital and "hard" CD/Vinyl formats, but as most of us have come to find, there a handful of albums & sets that are still only available in CD format. What are some of the CDs you've found worthwhile to buy over th...

Nah, no luck. Maybe just contacting Peter Davis directly is the solution. Will try sometime in the near future!

Re: Savory Collection Volume 2

There's complex legal issues around the release of this material. I suspect either digital-only made the copyright issues simpler, or Apple was seen as a suitable partner to help the project forward in exchange for exclusivity. As for audio quality, AAC format at 256 kbps is pretty decent, especial...

Re: Savory Collection Volume 2

The tracks sound great, but I wonder why only release these volumes in m4a format via the iTunes store. Kind of funny that so much time went into restoring these tracks and preparing them for release, only to have them released in a somewhat low quality format... :P

Songs that Speed Up

Hey all, Took a look around to see if anyone had asked this question previously and couldn't seem to find anything (maybe I'm mistaken). In any case, I'm looking for some suggestions for songs that speed up. This doesn't have to be at the beginning of the track; it can be in the middle or towards th...

Re: mosaic sets

Heard the most recent HMJ podcast mentioning the Mosaic set and had to come here. I've only listened to the SoundCloud samples they have up, but man...such crisp quality. The drums on Jive at Five are so clear!

It's on the wishlist for me as well. :)

Peter Davis & Lindy Hop Heaven CDs

Hey all, A friend recently reminded me of Peter Davis and Lindy Hop Heaven , and mentioned how it seemed impossible to find his CDs online (unless you want to shell out $250+) or contact Peter Davis. I started looking around and had similarly fruitless results. :? So I'm calling upon the powers of t...
