-Using a weight seems to minimize All Things Blue's warp, so I'm leaning on keeping it
-I've cleaned Billie Holiday several times and it seems to be slowly improving. There's one specific pop I'm hoping to remove...
-Monk is probably a lost cause. I'll see if they send another replacement but I'm not optimistic with how it'll turn out, either way.
All Things Blue: Still warped, maybe worse than the first one
Billie Holiday: Side A sounds good, but Side B still has frequent popping about midway through
Thelonious Monk: No visible scratch like the last copy, but still pops in the same spot
I've never had so many problems like this. I feel guilty for having to complain again, but at the same time, I paid money for this.
Anyone else's USPS package tracking hasn't updated since Friday? I have two packages and both are not showing any change... like, not even a generic "your item is in transit" update or delivery estimate. Just frozen on the 4th.
Roland Haynes' 2nd Wave is so fucking good. Extremely happy with the Real Gone Music variant I got instead of VMP. Are there any other must-own Black Jazz albums I should keep an eye out for when they get reissued? So far I have this, Walter Bishop's Coral Keys, and the Gene Russell RSD release.
