It'll very likely sell out, even big and expensive as it is, but it will take a while--I would guess more than two years. ... Cool. I definitely wanna buy it, but most likely in at least 2-3 months from now. The Mosaic booklets recently have been 15 or so pages, LP sleeve sized, with many large pho...

I have three questions for the "regulars" of Mosaic Records. 1. Is the upcoming 1932-1940 Duke Ellington's box set likely to sell out? 2. If so, how quickly? Within weeks? months? one year? 3. Do liner notes by Mosaic Records and by Bear Family Records compare quality wise? I've been buying several ...

I've searched on Google, but did not find any band under the name "Twin Jumpers". However, I found a band named Time Jumpers who recorded a version of "All of me".

Here is the link to their album on Amazon. Is it them?

I also randomly checked some of my past purchases: pretty much all of them cost $.49.

Once in I while, I may play a couple of songs by the same artist/band within the same set, but not not consecutively. However, I don't think I would play two or more songs in row by the same artist/band. My rationale is to avoid the risk of sounding monotonous. Recorded music, even with high fidelit...

The changes have taken place, at least for eMusic USA. My account balance has just switched from 0 credits to $0.00.

The credit system is still in place for my account too. Besides, I haven't noticed any signs of eMusic's "single largest addition ever".

I think that only about half of the CC were available on Amazon MP3. Unfortunately, it looks like Amazon MP3 (at least in the U.S.) has followed eMusic discontinuing them all. :(

If you are also considering Western Swing music for your acquisitions, you should include in the top notch class for sound quality and liner notes:

Bear Family Records
Origin Jazz Library (with some Jazz releases too)
