Open thread

With Haloscan dying, I ended up losing a lot of comments, and unfortunately Blogger won't allow me to have comments on old posts. So, here's an open thread.

I'm in the process of making some possible career changes, and so am extremely pressed for time. When the proverbial dust settles, I do have a backlog of material I want to upload for you all. Thanks for your patience.

thanks for your time, energy, enthusiasm, taste and generosity, there's been a lot of music I heard first because of you, thank you very much!

I've gone through a number of career changes, it was scary and not easy for me, I hope it works out well for you, whatever it is you are doing

all the best

Thanks for the opportunity to download Arthur Doyle's Conspiracy Nation. I don't buy vinyl so it has always been one of the missing pieces for me.

Just a note to say thanks for all the great music. You've done a tremendous job here of making some obscure and amazing free jazz accessible, and this blog has been a big part of my recent and ever-growing interest in jazz.

Thanks a lot (from some side of western Europe) for one of the best works I ever saw on the net.

Au revoir!

Thanks a lot for sharing the Pullen Graves from 66. I like Pullen but only knew the one with Mingus and the late Pullen from the 80's and 90's.

I cannot thank you enough for all the uber-cool music you've turned me on to that I would never have known about. Kudos and props!

Love this blog ... being a big fan of Arthur Doyle, it's a continuous source of frustration how little of his stuff is available. Could you post some of the download links again?

Regards
Anthony

James Benjamin said...

Thanks for the kind words, Anthony. I have been trying to decide what to do with this blog, since it has been so long since its last update. There is a possibility that I may try to launch a new version of it before the year is over. That will depend a great deal on my work load. The career change I alluded to in the open thread post came to pass, and while I am glad I did so, one of the things I ended up sacrificing was this particular hobby. Stay tuned, though. I hope to have something new in the works.

I too miss your great work, a lot of ear-opening uploads. If you do return, Lon Moshe's "Love is Where the Spirit Lies" is on YouTube with only 6 of the 7 cuts. I'd love to complete that really obscure album sometime.
Thanks.
