Unreleased Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers' Blue Note Just Coolin' Coming AAA on April 24th
Not sure what's more amazing: how many recordings Alfred Lion produced for Blue Note, or how many great ones have remained in the vaults. Over the past few years, numerous unreleased Blue Notes have finally been released and none are sub-par "leftovers".

AudioNautes Reissues Chesky Classic O Magnum Mysterium
What better time than now for the all-analog resurrection of this Chesky classic? Easter is three weeks away (though "Oh Great Mystery" is really about Christmas) and home lock down in a dreary time is here now.

Ken Micallef Interviews AnalogPlanet Editor Michael Fremer About Jazz LPs, RVG and Turntable Set-up
I think this video wraps up Ken Micallef's interview with me. It covers more jazz LP favorites, Rudy Van Gelder's legacy and plugs my turntable set-up DVD. It includes anecdotes, humorous asides, etc.

Mandy Moore's Silver Landings
I didn't know who Mandy Moore was when the press blurb arrived in my inbox. Incredible Boomer ignorance. What my eyes latched onto was the blurb's "laid down to tape" line. A web search quickly informed my Boomer/pop culture cluelessness! I should be embarrassed, but I don't embarrass easily.

ERC Announces Monk's Brilliant Corners From Original Mono Master Tape
Electric Recording Company announced today the forthcoming "true mono" reissue of Thelonious Monk's Brilliant Corners featuring Sonny Rollins due some time in April. ERC's costly limited edition releases usually quickly sell out. This one's still available but for how long?

Pro-Ject's Tube Box S2 MM/MC Phono Preamp Beats the Built In
Pro-Ject Audio Systems is undoubtedly the king of budget friendly, entry-level, high performance analog components. A definite go-to for sub $1000 turntables and bang for your buck phono preamps. Founded in 1991 by Heinz Lichtenegger during the evil reign of the CD, they fought their way to vinyl success and made it!

Ortofon 2M Blue Versus Audio Technica AT-VM95ML
More than a few emails have arrived over the last few weeks touting the sonic excellence of Audio-Technica's $169 AT-VM95ML dual moving magnet cartridge. The $236 Ortofon 2M Blue equipped Fluance RT85 was here for review so why not procure a VM95ML and do a direct comparison?

Analogplanet's Best Reissues of the Decade!
Here are our choices for the best reissues of the past decade. They include individual LPs, box sets and ongoing series. We decided to omit from the list re-mixes such as Abbey Road, because they are not strictly "reissues" as well as "newly found" older recordings such as John Coltrane's Blue World.

Rhino originally released this material in 1999 as a 7 CD box set, but to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the original Fun House release the label returned to the original tapes and Bernie Grundman cut lacquers directly from them for the original album and for the live concert LP.
