Dave Douglas
I just had two Dave Douglas albums arrive after ordering them from the HMV website (who seem to be ridiculously fast in terms of getting stuff out - I ordered Scott Walker's Tilt from there at about 3pm one afternoon last year, and it arrived the following morning), and the packaging on these albums (Songs For Wandering Souls and Charms Of The Night Sky) is absolutely exquisite. They're 'Artist Editions' from Winter & Winter, heavy and tactile and lovingly put together. But the thing that's really intrigued me is the inclusion in the Jiffy Bag, by HMV presumably, of a leaflet/piece of bumf advertising downloadable mobile phone ringtones and games - last week I received a couple of Plaid albums from HMV and those didn't have these leaflets in; are we therefore to assume that jazz fans are more likely to download mobile ringtones than electronica fans?
