PRESSING: #2752/5000 ALBUMS PRESSED
CONDITION : LIKE NEW/NEAR MINT
In 1983 Mosaic launched an endeavor whose objective was to assemble and reissue definitive collections of particular artists or groups which cover their work during a certain phase of their career. These collections not only included published recordings but also alternative takes and even numbers that for various reasons were never released. These reissues came in 12' x 12' boxed sets that included extensive liner notes and a complete discography that proved to be of great value to serious jazz lovers and collectors. Originally issued in LP form, early on Mosaic added CD's which today are their major offering.
In the 1980's I began to collect these Mosaic sets feeling that eventually they would attract great interest among collectors. At this time I have decided to disperse my collection of over 80 albums all of which were acquired directly from Mosaic.
The album listed in is a 3 CD set featuring Ike Quebec and John Hardee. Although CDs are not subject to wear, these CDs (as well as the others I will be offering) have been rarely played and are in like new condition. The box and booklet with liner notes and discography are in near mint condition.It should be noted that what appears to be scratches on the lower right corner of the cover art is actually part of the original print.
