  1. I used listening booths many times in the 50's and early 60's. LPs were not sealed in those days, most were mono. Typical price for an LP was $3.95 or less for 10-inchers. LPs were produced on heavy vinyl and were fairly resistant to scratches caused by playing prior to purchase. I think the emergence of stereo and sealed LPs and lighter vinyl LPs helped the demise of listening booths. Also in those days if after purchasing an LP you found scratches on it while playing you could return it to the record store for a refund or exchange.
  2. Paul Horn Corner

    The Paul Horn Quintet was recorded in a March 10, 1958 session on the "Stars of Jazz" TV series show #88. This session was released on Calliope LP CAL-3034. James Harrod's new book "Stars of Jazz" gives detail biographical information and a discography of that session.

  11. Your music cataloging "system"

    With the stay at home situation now would be a great time to enter your 3x5 cards into an excel spreadsheet. Each card would be a record. It would take a lot of time but in the long run it would be worth it.
  12. Your music cataloging "system"

    Entering a collection onto an excel spread-sheet is quite easy. It would take a lot of time if you have a large collection but the benefits after you are done are terrific. The capability of excel to sort any column is very useful. At a minimum you could enter artist, title, and label in each of 3 columns. Additional columns could include source such as CD, CDR, LP, Cassette. Secondary artists could also be listed in separate columns. I find this very useful because some albums have more than one principal artist or for a particular artist that I follow. I also have a column for notes about the album that I want to save.
  13. Joe Pass "Sounds of Synanon"

    Frank Rehak LP Dawn DLP-1107 titled "Jazzville vol.2" is reissued on Dawn CD DCD-114 titled "Jazzville".
  14. Your music cataloging "system"

    I use an excel spread-sheet for my 4,000 CD/CDR collection. I can sort by Artist, Title, Label. For liner notes, etc I have to go to my shelves. Other than excel I have not downloaded any thing to hard drives, etc.
