    I was very tempted, but just can't get past the price. Would be nice to pay less for a more simple package...just the vinyl basically. They can keep the scarf :)

    I suspect the scarf isn't influencing the price by much, nor the "Jazz Doesn't Suck" coaster or platter mat thingee...

    Thanks JMo... I'm in, when I find my wallet.

    yeah i'm torn on this one. i'm obviously a big fan. but 200 buck for 3 LP plus a bunch of paraphernalia fodder i'm trying to do the internal idiosyncratic math and i'm not sure yet.

    Does seem like alot for a vinyl mix tape and accessories, but what has blue note ever done that wasn't great?

    yeah that's why i'm torn haha. the 3 LPs will almost certainly be cool (and i don't even have much charles lloyd on vinyl yet, to name one example from this box), and i agree that a scarf and a platter matt and whatever else isn't hiking up the price. it's scarcity that is doing the work. if it were $100 i'd be all in. for double that, my impulsivity is being matched by my will power in an epic battle that will end in mental collapse.

    How many compilations is it supposed to be? I got distracted by the gigantic jazz is not a crime coaster. Looks perfect for keeping the condensation from my 40oz off my exotic wood coffee table.

    I'm a no. If I'm going to pay 200 the vinyl should be AAA. The price is going into the packaging rather than the content.

    yeah exactly. they say content will be AAA whenever possible, so probably not the new stuff and maybe only certain older things depending on the quality of the tapes?

    Only 3 LPs? Not AAA all the time? I haven't found my wallet yet..... maybe I'll pass. The packaging is definitely running this up a bit, and I have no interest in lithographs, booklets, scarves, nor fancy boxes.

    yeah i mean, it's 2 LPs that are a compilation of stuff, and then 1 LP that's an album by i forget who now. they say it's AAA when possible, so that excludes new material or if tape quality is bad (though i don't think they'd reach for that material right away anyhow). my will power is winning out so far, so i think if i can make it through the night i'm in the clear. mental collapse averted.

    Yes, rest your orbitofrontal cortex for the night, as it is associated with shifting decision thresholds in self-serving cognition.

    I'd be so much more excited if they were basically re-starting the Musicmattersjazz remaster under their own label. Three of the MMJ records would be $150-200 and would be a far safer bet for quality (at least in my opinion).

    This. Unless you plan on blathering on and on about how dedicated you are to AAA, I don't care about your product.

    Even then, I find if I take some trips to jazz hotspots for the same prices as remasters, I can get originals. Though BlueNote stuff is always tough. Originals always beat remasters.
