been looking for that on the used market.... great reviews.

It's a great set.  I've picked up a few of these mosaics directly from founder Michael Cuscuna.  I spoke with him a while back and he told me that, back in the day, he put a handful of each of their releases aside for 'retirement planning'.  I think they are getting close to closing down the operation within a few years.

Currently listening to "Third Man Theme" - Anton Karas  (LL 1560)

Well, that's good to know.   As I've said before, I'll have to make a visit.

Better late than never.   Hal and Dale are probably still in biz-ness?  Might even have some of the pieces listed back in the pre-Trump era!!

Welcome to the forum.

Currently listening to 'Nows the Time" thru an AU 9500.  Pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good sound..

It will probably cost 40$ for an estimate and probably not much more, just guessing.  I'd try Vince at Galaxy or Kevin at Progressive electronics in met lebo area.  Kevin comes to into his shop there every Wednesday and works rest of time from home, I believe.

Good luck

Thanks guys and yes George .  Had to get them yesterday because today, after being on a super low carb diet for three months, I'm drinking a few beers and going out for pizza later!  First pizza since mid septEmber, and I love pizza"

Was out on the estate sale circuit Saturday with my wife, the Empress.  She got me up early to drive out to Nevillewood, where I was second in line behind Chuck, an audiophile type from Butler who was chatty and told me about buying a few things from Hal and Dale recently.  He also bought the DQ10s they had for $250.   I probably overpaid for a couple pairs of small Advents but my brain was still thawing out from the waiting in line to make a good decision.  From there, the Empress and I made a few more stops, one in West Mifflin, where I found a non descript box in a cluttered garage, opened it and, lo and behold, saw a Sony ST-80W tuner and a Heathkit SA-2 (complete with manual).  The Heathkit needs some cleaning but plays (though scratchy.)   Working on it should be a instructive little project for the winter months.  At the last stop, I found a gorgeous and working pair of KLH 6s.   Not a bad day after all.

Thelonious Monk
Complete Vogue and Black Lion Recordings
Mosaic CD Box
Disc one   

That does look like a beauty.  Had I not just had my Sansui au9500 recapped, I'd be all over that.  I'm sure the lucky buyer will be happy .


Hello PBJ,

though I am not sure we've ever met at one of nicks swap meets, I feel like I know you through your posts and want to wish you the best as you bravely  face the challenges with treatment .   Keep that love light shining.

Hey Mark,

Nice pickups.  I am guessing the Clash is the USA version, with 'Hammersmith Palais" on it?

Though I have never had much luck there, I was planning to hit the Monroeville HPB with a 40 or 50% coupon,  but got tied up with several estate sales Saturday and Sunday.  Found some cheap (as in $1 each) vinyl including some Coltrane on Impulse, two "The Three Sounds" mono Blue Notes with 'the ear', some Julie London, Donald Fagan 'the Nightfly"  and in honor of the recent Dylan show, I had to buy the 6 LP Sinatra set, 'The Voice -1943-1952 - The Columbia Years".    Also found a Huey 'Piano" Smith on Ace.   


I think Betty Draper would.
