<The Dave Brubeck Trio - Distinctive Rhythm Instrumentals>

 

 

Is this good?  I passed it up, not knowing exactly what's on it, but they possibly still have it.  There are a few other Brubeck releases that are high up my list of things that I want to find a great copy of.

 

I think I just have RSD release fatigue, this year there was very little that appealed to me, and what did appeal I either couldn't get (Elliott Smith) or was overpriced (Malkmus live Ege Bamyasi cover LP).  I kind of feared the Brubeck one would just be odds and ends or something, so many of the RSD releases just seem a bit overhyped.

 

Although I'm against fighting crowds and lining up and stuff, I did do a big mid-afternoon walk to hit four of the best stores here.  Didn't get any RSD stuff, but there was a 10% off sale at one of the stores so that was the only excuse I needed.  All of these are LP's:

 

Lô Borges   S/T

João Gilberto   O Amor, o Sorriso e a Flor

Grizzly Bear   Shields

Bob Dylan   The Basement Tapes  (MFSL Edition)

Burial   Truant/Rough Sleeper

 

Even though I didn't get any actual RSD releases, I did get stuff on sale, and there were tons of people in all the stores I went to, so I am in favour of RSD.  The best part about it, though, was that I was going to catch William Tyler play a show last night (which I was hugely looking forward to), and found out Friday that he was playing an in-store show earlier in the day.  So I got to see him twice, which was amazing.  Bee, the store was Sonic Boom, which I'm sure is the store you went to, if you were there at 5 PM you would have caught him. 

 

Anyway, I also bought a 7" and a live CD at the show later on.  And I bought a CD copy of the album I already had on LP just to send to my sister or something.  I basically just wanted to buy some stuff from the guy because he's driving all over North America by himself like a maniac with seemingly minimal support for such a talented musician.  Go see him if you're into guitar!  It cost $8.

Considering I only paid $10 for the Brubeck I'd say it's worth it on name alone.

 

Here's some samples from the full 24 track release.

http://www.allmusic.com/album/24-classic-original-recordings-distinctive-rhythm-instrumentals-mw0000308751

 

The tracks on the RSD release are:

Sweet Georgia Brown

That Old Black Magic

September Song

Spring Is Here

'S Wonderful

Tea For Two

Undecided

 

Reminds me I need to get the first Brubeck RSD release from eBay. It's only like...$20.

sm@,

 

I got that Bob Dylan The Basement Tapes (MoFi) too, it's a great record! It's my favourite of Dylan's stuff.

 

Ya, I was at Sonic Boom. Lined up at 9:15ish and got some of what I wanted, but there were too many people in that small RSD corner, and it was impossible to look through bins.... so I paid for the few albums I got and left. Then, I went to the Sonic Boom sister store in Kennsington that opens at 11:00. Got there before doors opened as well and snagged that Phish album, which really made my day (especially considering they only got 2 copies in).

 

After all the rush, and after grabbing some brunch, I went back to the Bloor location for some music, and yes, I saw William Tyler. He was very good - real chill. What other stores did you hit up? Soundscapes and Kops are my other two regular shops, but I didn't have the energy to be on the move all day. Was a fun day though!

post #5704 of 6447

Thanks MT, at least I know what it is now. 

 

Bee, cool that you saw him, I figured you were long gone since you lined up early.  Yesterday I went to, in order:

 

Kops (Ridiculously crowded, didn't stay very long at all)

Rotate This (My favourite store, had TONS of RSD stuff, a lot of it seemed a bit expensive, though)

Soundscapes (10% off everything, not tons of RSD stuff left)

Sonic Boom (didn't even look at the RSD stuff, but did get that Dylan, and the Burial EP)

 

I was basically just killing time between doing what I had to do early in the day, and meeting some friends later on at Sonic Boom for the in-store. 

 

Good to know that that Dylan record is a favourite.  Weirdly (since I have loads of Dylan's other albums, and love The Band), I haven't actually even heard it before.  I was always waiting for a good edition to come out, didn't feel like spending on the double CD that was the only one around forever.  I guess I have a good edition now, I didn't even know MFSL was doing these.  I also just saw that Blood on the Tracks has also just been released by MFSL, I'll definitely have to try to track that one down as well.

If they still have it I would say go for it.

My good friend and former roommate of mine set out for the stores a bit late (around noon) and ended up missing out on a number of titles, one title being The Dave Brubeck Trio album.

I might've been the only one at my shop that got it, honestly. Not too many Jazz guys here I guess.

Got some post- Record Store Day treasure....

 

...had dinner across the street from another shop, so I peeked my head in beforehand, and saw they had one copy left of the Sly Stone 10". The album cover is pretty groovy; think I might stick it on my wall.

post #5710 of 6447

Hey I saw that Rhye - Woman record when I was browsing through, but I didn't buy it. Listening to them now and I think I'd buy it later if I see it pop up again.

Yes, I was out of town and luckily my local record store still had some items that I wanted:) The Liquid Tension Experiment is one cool piece of vinyl. Looking forward to listening to the Miles records.
