IMPRESSED 3 - HERE & NOW !




















As you will all know from my previous post Impressed 3 was good to go until Universal pulled the plug on it. Compiled single handedly as a labour of love by Tony Higgins (who had previously put together Impressed 1 & 2 with G.Peterson) this third volume was shelved by Universal and nobody would have been any the wiser ...if Tony hadn't left a comment at my Stan Tracey post mentioning this fact. So I posted up the track listing and Don Rendell's notes courtesy of Tony and got a stack of comments and a lot of interest.
So now here's the good news - Tony Higgins has sent me a CDR of Impressed 3 pulled together from his original vinyl and given the go ahead for it to be made available here at Orgy In Rhythm ! Tony has also sent me two collages which he put together to be used for the artwork on the intended release along with a superb set of copius sleeve notes about each featured track and Don Rendell's previously posted intro essay. I have included all of these in the download file and also used one of the collages to head up this post.
So big big thanks go out to Tony Higgins - please leave a comment to show your appreciation for all the work he has put into this magnificent compilation and his decision to share it with us.

It's amazing, just discovered the story, was wondering if there was a guy crazy enough in blogland to do the compilong work, but now it's coming from Mr Higgins itself!! A big lesson to these record companies that block projects on the one hand and complain on the other one. Big up Bacoso & Tony!!

This is what this music blogging thing is (should be) all about. Big, big thanks to Mr. Rendell, Mr. Higgins and of course our gracious host, Señor Bacoso.

insta said...

This is so awesome and special that a "Thank You" post obviously is not enough in terms of gratitude, but it's all I can send right now, so THANK YOU to Tony and Bacoso. The music will be cherished and celebrated (by playing it many times :-) !
Unimportant side note: it's my birthday today, thought I'd check out OIR for a little present - and BAM! Beautiful!

Bacoso said...

My apologies to reza.ryanb and Martin who all commented on this one.I managed to accidently delete your words of wisdom with my fat fingers earlier today.Feel free to leave your thoughts here once again and I promise not to fuck 'em up this time!

Bacoso

Massive thanks to you & Tony for this.

This really is a special share & it is unbelievable (or perhaps not) that Universal dropped it!!

I have the first two but had no idea that a third was planned.

It was my birthday this week as well so this is a fantastic surprise present!!

Can't stop playing Jazz Rule at present but it all sounds really strong & this will remain for ever in my record collection.

Thanks again

Desdemona said...

thanks so much.

bengubbins said...

Thanks a lot for posting and props to Tony for all his doing.

Impressed 1 + 2 are essentials that directed me to plenty of under-championed UK jazz LPs (Including Graham Collier's Deep Dark Blue Centre and Laurie Johnson's Synthesis).

Looking forward to giving this a good spin, tho shame it's not (yet) on wax.

Fred Martin said...

Hmmm, rapidshare doesn't seem to like me:

"Download can not be started. The server returned with error Please stop flooding our download servers..."

Anyone else got this problem?

Living on an island in The Netherlands with no record shops in a 75 km radius, it's great to spend my Sundays in blogland. This post is one of my favourites...but all your posts are..

Thanks,
