New Thelonius Monk Recording Available

Postby Tonybro » 26 Jul 2018 14:35

Guys,

Gearbox Records in the UK have acquired some unreleased recordings of Thelonius Monk recorded live in Copenhagen in 1963!

Limited to 500 copies only - all analogue using their in-house all analogue system.

More details here. I've ordered mine already. :-)

Guess I'm not too late. I ordered it. Shipping is only £8.00 (about $10) to the states. Hopefully it survives the trip.

only 500 being pressed and 4 people on here over a 3 week period have managed to order one. Given the way new releases sell out almost instantly this is very odd, unless the OP is the only person who spotted the webpage?

Speaking for myself, I've never heard of Gearbox Records and the only time I search across the pond and down under is when I can't find a particular record here. I suppose, out of curiosity, that one could call Gearbox and ask them how many they've sold :-k

I believe they are a very small outfit without a big marketing budget and specialise in all-analogue productions.

I also have the Applewood Road album they did last year and that is excellent.

its just odd that one email to Fremer and the whole 500 would sell in a minute. I'm not in the market for £40 albums otherwise I'd grab a copy.
