    Fantastic news.

    I’m glad it got a release.

    Thanks for posting, I’d not heard about it.

    Excellent, thanks for the news, DE!

    Assuming they stock it, I wonder how the hell HMV or Virgin will find a section to file *this* baby under?

    Good point DP!

    How about a Point Of Sale promotion until the stock runs out (half a dozen copies say?) then stick it on Back Order? Job’s a good’un.

    I should have made more of this in the above post but fans of the old 78 should look up the ‘vintage jazz’ link on the front page. There must be others that cover all genres too…I should google that sometime!

    Well my copy from klang-records.co.uk arrived on Friday.

    I only ordered it mid week too, great service.

    Great fun it is too – I was initialy dissapointed when I opened the nice gatefold sleve to look at the booklet, and opened it to discover it was all in German, however much to my surprise as I looked at the third side of the sleve and found a nice second translated booklet…

    Oh, and the musics a nice mix too, as to be expected I suppose…
