- Dear list
Recently, someone in other jazz email list reported that several tracks on discs
1 & 2 of the Armstrong Decca Mosaic have been transfered at the wrong speed,
what makes it a difference of up to a half tone.
As I don't have that boxed set yet, could anybody confirm this?
(sorry if this has been discussed before or it is common knowledge, but I made a
quick search through the group's archives and could find anything related)

- Augustin - It might be useful to know which tracks you think are suspect. For the most part, I've found that Armstrong tending to play tunes in the written key. So anyone with a sheet music collection could confirm the correct key for various pieces.
