Hi Kent--the last title you're thinking of is probably "The Brass Are Comin'", which coincided with the "wild west" TV special the TJB had back then. Depending on where you live, decent copies of the Brasil '66 albums aren't too difficult to find, but IMHO, the crown jewel would be the "HA Presents" album that was pressed by MoFi. I've yet to hear a version that sounded so good, although I'm anxious to hear the CD reissues coming out next month.KentTeffeteller said:Hi,
For me, I need clean LP copies of:
HA Presents Sergio Mendes & Brazil 66'
Herb Alpert and the TJB: Warm (critically needed)
Sergio Mendes & Brazil 66": Look Around
A & M Audiophile series LP's
Herb Alpert & the TJB: Here Come The Brass
I've searched periodically for this set over the years but up until now have come away empty-handed. This week I finally spotted one on eBay, supposedly NM. We'll see when it gets here.Anyone here have three-disc red, blue and clear promo set of 12" singles from i]Keep Your Eye On Me[/i]? I already had the singles, but it's a neat set. Another local place had about four of those when I bought mine.
Interesting! Never imagined silver vinyl. Styx's Equinox was pressed on yellow vinyl, but I'm not sure if that was a Canadian or US pressing.The two colored-vinyl A&M releases in the U.S. that I'd most love to find but have never run across a copy of either are the silver-vinyl version of Styx's Cornerstone and the pink-vinyl version of the Pretty in Pink soundtrack. Anytime I run across copies of those albums, I always have to peek inside to see what color the vinyl is, but no such luck just yet.
I thought there was one unique mix on a B-side that wasn't available elsewhere...I'd have to check again. Pretty sure I have the original three 12" releases of this.As I mentioned back when this thread was newer, I've already got all of the 12" mixes that are represented on this red, clear, blue set, but once I learned of this one, it's something I wanted. I'm hoping for delivery early next week.
None of the covers will be in good shape--the cover seems to be slightly thinner than a typical LP jacket, but not as flimsy as those sleeves I've seen from overseas (which IMHO are horrible). What you'll find on just about all copies is that the bottom and side splines on this jacket will be blown out: three records are a lot of weight for one jacket to support, so just from handling alone, the spines get trashed.Ah! The triple-disc colored-vinyl 12" Alpert set!
I actually saw a copy of that at one of the local record shops here a few years back for $10, but the cover wasn't in the greatest of condition and was pretty dinged up, so I opted not to get it, but that was the only time I've ever run into it, unfortunately.
Ah - this one:I've been looking for Carpenters Brazilian Greatest Hits. It has Only Yesterday as the follow-in from the Overture from The Singles 1969-1973.
Yes, the 1975 remake of "Land Ho" appears as track 3 on the first disc in the Retrospectacle anthology.I've heard the remix of "Land Ho" that was originally slated for release of Crisis? What Crisis? and eventually found its way onto the Retrospectacle anthology a few years back. The original 7" version, though, I've never heard; as far as I'm aware, that single never got a release here in the U.S., sadly.
And I've surprisingly actually never come across any of their pre-Quietest Moments material on 45, not even "Bloody Well Right," so the "Lady" 45 with "You Started Laughing" on the flip has continued to elude me as well. Go figure why that one has still yet to make its way onto a CD.
