Nice thing to happen, especially when it was cheap like that.

It's later Blakey (early 80's with a 19 year old Terence Blanchard and a 21 year old Donald Harrison) but I just ordered and received a new sealed copy of Blakey and the Messengers "Oh-By the Way" from the Jazz Record Mart in Chicago after seeing/hearing Donald Harrison in Chicago on New Year's Eve.
$9.99 plus shipping for a sealed record. Pristine Dutch pressing and great performance and sonics-clearly an analog recording. Makes some of the re-issues I've been buying seem pricey!!!
They have a couple of different pressings of this record (all sealed NOS) in stock-I opted for what I thought was the original '82 pressing with the gold cover. It has a few liner note errors on the back but I'll accept that for the earlier pressing!
Just a heads up for those that might have some interest and shipping was ultra reasonable!
01-24-09: HdmMaybe you need to fly to Concord Records and straighten them out?
Mred didn't agree with you. He said:
According to All Music Guide the Keystone disc is with the Marsalis bros. but the "Oh-By the Way" is with Harrison/Blanchard.Grimace's original post is about the Keystone disc.
Hdm-I understood that you were talking about a different record, so I guess my comprehension meets your standards, but you might have avoided a prolonged back-and-forth by reiterating in your second post that there were two different albums at play. Instead, you chose to give a flippant "Actually, it doesn't" just to force on us how above-it-all you are. That's on top of semi-jacking the OP with a post only peripherally concerning the OP's.
All to say that, in this case, I'm siding with the 'comprehension challenged'.
Johnbrown: Let's really hijack the thread and review things here. I post about another clearly identified Blakey record available sealed/new at a reasonable price that might be of interest to readers identifying the players (now that's become a "semi-jacking" of the thread) and the original poster succinctly responds that the personnel is different, to which I succinctly respond that they are not.
Somebody else identifies that there are two different records involved (which is abundantly clear from my first post) and then it's reiterated and implied, incorrectly, once again that the Marsalis brothers are playing on the record I've described. Then, when I saracastically (sorry, can't help myself but at this stage I'm becoming a little less tolerant) make my point, I have someone else that clearly has not either read or understood what I've posted suggest I fly to Concord Records and straighten out "my" misunderstanding of the situation.
In other words, I'm "corrected" incorrectly on three different occasions and now I'm the "bad guy" here! A thread jacker and an "above it all" guy. Absolutely nothing to do with the original post, as you point out, but an interesting commentary on our society. As my 13 year old son likes to say: "that's rich!" (he's a bit sarcastic like his old man).
And now, back to audio/music topics.
