No Sun In Venice... (Mono Version)
No Sun In Venice... (Mono Version)
Price: 4.14

5.0 out of 5 stars It's MONO and different.., 14 Jan 2014
Been looking at the incredible BnF Collection which has been steadily rolling out onto MP3. With over 3000 items listed it is a massive archive. This MONO version of MJQ's "No Sun In Venice" is a set with different takes to that which was issued on the STEREO version. It was quiet common to record separate takes for stereo/mono issues in the 1950's and for any jazz fan this can be a source of treasure. I know that the MONO version of MJQ's "The Comedy" is also different from it's STEREO sibling. The whole collection is worth a closer look.....

If you want Desmond's RCA recordings in mini 'original artwork' card sleeves, then this is the one to get. Nice. Good value.

Great Brubeck Quartet studio collection. But why not all the Columbia recordings, including the live recordings...come on Sony, why hold back?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product - but get the size right for you......, 9 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Saw this shirt priced €60 on sale in France. Back in UK saw shirt on sale from AMAZON but unsure which size to order. A helpful reviewer had said that sizes for this product were a bit on the large end of the scale (the product is designed by an American company and I know from past experiences that clothing from the US comes up larger than european examples). I am nearly 11 stone, 5' 11" tall and 15 collar size and usually buy medium size clothes. The 'small' size shirt fits perfectly, not tight at all, so this confirms my thoughts that, when buying clothes from US manufacturers, a size down works well by european standards. Product is great, well thought out as a hiking cover-up shirt and good value.
