Listen My Children and You Shall Hear- help!

#1 Post by Lindy Bomb » Tue Nov 11, 2003 11:08 pm

Ok, so before I cancelled my emusic account I downloaded the two disc Basie set, Listen My Children and You Shall Hear.

As I was copying the files to cd for storage I listened through the album and noticed some discrepencies between the titles and the songs I heard. The songs are listed in the same order as they are on the list on allmusic. However, some of the songs I hear do not match the titles of the files. I was wondering if anyone owns this set and if they have the same problem with the cds or not (meaning it's a problem with

Also, if you do own the set and/or have the correct track titles, would you mind sharing them with me? I have a good deal of the songs on other cds, but not all of I don't want to label anything incorrectly. Thanks.

From listening to the music (although it DOES sound like a Cd worth ordering), I'd say you need to take out one of the "Good morning Blues" and put it at the end. I don't know which one, but you can figure it out by looking at the time of each version to see which one stays in place and which one moves...

It seems like a sampling of the Decca set.

That's not quite right, although it does work for most of the cd. It gets all screwy at the end of the first cd, and mixes the songs up more than just being offset by one. The second cd, however is completely messed up- the songs are all mixed up and I'm not familiar enough/own enough of them on other albums to figure it out on my own.
