I had a helluva time getting disc 2 off of that hub. Really thought I was going to snap the disc in half to remove it.
I finally nudged it off after a lot of praying, and now have no plans to put the disc back on that stiff hub. I'll place disc 2 in a sleeve.
Anyone have a trick to getting this disc on and off?
Same here. I remember several threads where people mentioned this kind of problem and each time I thought, well, what *is* the problem. Always managed the get the discs out. 'Til the äva Collection. Disc 2 and I had a fight. In the end we both lost in a way: I got the disc out but had to sacrifice one of those tiny plastic "hub teeth thingys". Fortunately the disc still holds itself on this hub without falling out. And it's now easy to release it.
Jesus I was just going to write and ask how the hell do I get disc 2 out! I can't! I don't know how close I got to snapping that disc in half.
The sound quality is just so far superior to the LPs or the pretty horrendous early pressings of the CDs, this one is really a must-have. Other than almost breaking disc 2 like many others, I'm 100% pleased.
Yes, our new release will go well with the Ava set. There are a couple of cues Nick Carras wrote for DATE BAIT that were obviously influenced by Bernstein, one of them dealing with heroin addiction should remind some of Berstein's THE MAN WITH THE GOLDEN ARM. In fact, here's the first half of the track...
I finally sprang for this. What the heck was I waiting for?? If you like jazz, crisp high end fidelity, happy vibes, and smooth orchestral scoring ... get this set!!! Is there a release out there for Henry Mancini similar to this?
