  • I bought Johnny Griffin's "A Blowing Session" late last year right before it sold out and listened to it a handful of times. But I've recently gone back and started listening to it some more and hot damn, is it blowing me away (no pun intended). Just some jazz legends absolutely killing it.
    Man I have no idea if I want to keep QotSA or swap next week. Never really go into them and while dollar signs are going off in my head about flipping this in six months, I don't expect the value of it to reach the level the original pressing reached, especially since the band is putting out a standard black version.
    Against my better judgment, I'm currently swapping for Joel Ross.

    Update: Swapped again, this time for William Bell. Still not feeling too certain about anything. Maybe I should just keep it on Da Brat lol
    This might be premature, but I'm thinking of pruning next month down to my main track only (RHH). And I'll probably swap if it's Da Brat. I kind of want it, but chances are it'll stick around for a while. She can go to the bottom of my to-swap list.

    My backlog is looking like this, although I'm kind of on the fence about Sister Rosetta:

    Sister Rosetta Tharpe
    Experience Unlimited
    Wells Fargo
    Eddie Floyd
    Jorge Ben

    Of course, even if I keep it to only my main sub, next month should still be a decent size box: both Madlib/Gibbs albums along with Yusef Lateef. And who knows, maybe an exclusive will bowl me over next week.
    Yoooo Charlotte Day Wilson has a new... something out next week.

    One of my favorite discoveries through VMP. Here's hoping they get another exclusive with her.
    I have a feeling enough people will swap out Hud Dreems for it to make an appearance in the store next month, but I'm not gonna take a risk and will keep it.

    I still wanna grab an album from my backlog so I currently have Essentials swapped for Clipse. I don't think that one will be around much longer.

    My current backlog:

    Little Milton
    Sister Rosetta Tharpe
    Experience Unlimited
    Wells Fargo
    Eddie Floyd
    Jorge Ben
    New month, new ROTM announcements, new list of future swaptions, probably in this order:

    Little Milton
    Clipse
    Sister Rosetta Tharpe
    Wells Fargo
    Experience Unlimited
    Eddie Floyd
    Jorge Ben


    I gave up Method Man for Lightmen this month. Honestly, I kind of hope another Bespoke Post VMP box is in the pipeline with several of the above records included as options. That box they put out this month ruled lol
    Posting this here for personal future reference. My current VMP backlog to grab up as future swaptions, roughly in this order:

    The Lightmen Plus One
    Little Milton
    Clipse
    Experience Unlimited
    Wells Fargo
    Eddie Floyd

    Of course if the new Mr. Bongo bundle or TLC survive to swaps, I'll have to push these back accordingly...
    Goodie Mob was missing from my box and was told it sold out. :| Buuuut... VMP agreed to replace it with Ivy Sole which I thought was sold out too. We shall soon see!

    Ah yes, the good ol' VMP "sold out". They've pretty much singlehandedly rendered the phrase meaningless. Coincidentally they've also rendered the phrase "in stock" meaningless so... that's impressive/mind boggling.

    And they still had Goodie Mob for sale in the store until I pointed it out. Ivy Sole is back in stock, although you have to search her name as it doesn't show up on the RHH page. It's all really weird.
