Nesuhi Ertegun tribute from Rhino Handmade

Postby Muskrat » 06 Dec 2008, 02:21

Nice, if you've got the bucks.


When I was a kid, I bought a Ray Charles jazz album. The liner notes referred to a song ("Deed I Do") that wasn't on the album. I wrote to the producer -- Ertegun -- asking what gives. He personally responded, that there were different lineups on the mono and stereo versions of the album and that inadvertently wasn't mentioned in the notes.

God, I wish I'd kept that letter. But it taught me a lot about class.

Things that a fella can't forget...

It's one of those things I'd love to buy (I won't, for reasons of economy - but I'd love to) just to reward them for doing something so classy.

I received a email about this today too.
It looks like it's very nice - and I think it will be sold out soon :?
But it it's difficult for me to ask Mrs Kenji for her credit card again...

Great!

Would you mind if I asked her for her credit card, too?

A friend of mine in the early 60s wrote to Atlantic explaining how much he loved the atlantic records he'd heard and how difficult it was to get hold of them here in England. He got a letter back and a bunch of singles (6 he thinks).

Mine arrived today (#1896) - it's a beautiful box and it's very classy package.
I really like "An Atlantic Jazz Portfolio by Lee Friedlander". This portfolio has nineteen 10"x10" photographs.
Also, I just listened to disc 1 ["Volume 1: Some Atlantic Jazz"] and of course the music is wonderful too.
I will enjoy this box for many years, I'm sure...



Also, I think I was lucky with shipping cost - Rhino charged
me USD19.99 but the shipping cost on the parcel I received
was USD44.25! It's a heavy package...
