got shipping notice an hour or so ago.......
« on: June 28, 2011, 06:18:39 PM »
.....for TP-019, Nojima Plays Liszt. i could have it tomorrow, or Thursday at the latest.

i heard a couple of cuts off this at our local audio club meeting a month ago and was very impressed. this might be a new 'best' based on that listen.

i've been 'jones'ing' for this title ever since it was announced last year. i love the CD, and the Lp.....if you don't have it, is outstanding and essential. great performance, and great recording.

and there is nothing like a full tilt boggie concert grand to challenge a system.

i cannot wait!

Got the notice today too! What a nice surprise.
I've been bogged down with a bunch of "home improvements" and having a new TP tape will be a fantastic break from my DIY efforts.

That's what we have always thought, and that's why we chose it for The Tape Project. It's a captivating performance.

Mine should arrive today!  I also have the LP - one of RR's best.  Heard a performance of the Lizst Sonata a couple of weeks ago. It is one of the great piano pieces of the repertoire.   Larry

We experienced shippus interruptus while we were attended Romo's wedding and the California Audio Show, but we are back to shipping this album this week. A big pile is heading out today, with more to ship out over the next few days.

Got my shipping notice on the 28th of July with delivery for today, August 3rd. Checked the UPS tracking service and discovered the tape was only in Davenport, Iowa. Tracking updated stated: "Adverse Weather Conditions". Tape had only gone from WA state to Iowa in 6 days and now is stuck there. Anyone know what's going on in Iowa?

Even if I did I'm not sure that I would admit to it.

Got my shipping notice and should see the tape next week. Just in time to play it on the deck with the new heads Charlie's installing on my Technics this weekend! ;)
