    Dwight Evans never made the HOF. Damn good outfielder but not in the hall.
  3. Percy France Discography Help

    Well, jazzdisco.com has the following: Sir Charles Thompson And The Swing Organ (Columbia CL 1364) Rudy Rutherford, clarinet; Percy France, tenor sax; Sir Charles Thompson, organ; Aaron Bell, bass; J.C. Heard, drums. Columbia Studios, NYC, released 1959 I Get A Kick Out Of You Cool And Easy Robbins' Nest Lady In Red April Love 19th Hole Jumpin' At Basie's I Wanta Love You What's New Oh Me, Oh My Love Is A Many Splendored Thing Party Time ** also issued on Columbia CS 8205. The February 1, 1960 issue of Billboard pictures the album: https://books.google.com/books?id=BR8EAAAAMBAJ&pg=PA39&lpg=PA39&dq=charles+thompson+and+his+swing+organ&source=bl&ots=bAH0oQxUq7&sig=ACfU3U1PtUoTWHBz31qOunCvAqRDT3tuNw&hl=en&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiwhs6SpeXjAhXy1FkKHYLeCo44HhDoATAEegQICBAB#v=onepage&q=charles%20thompson%20and%20his%20swing%20organ&f=false That would certainly support a 1959 recording date. It's unlikely that Columbia would get it out that quickly.

    That's assuming that Lord is correct. Not always a good assumption.

    Mine has just the 3 CDs. Slim, gatefold packaging. No DVD.

    It’s a stripped down version with different packaging. You get all the music (great!) but not the elaborate original packaging. I had also been looking for a reasonably priced version when I saw it offered a few years ago on Amazon. I assume that’s what you’ll be getting.
  8. Are you a man of distinction? A real big spender?

  10. A 2-fer. The first one is a hoot. The second one is the Schaeffer beer commercial. Having trouble embedding the video file. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eHGMMuD4Vag
  11. Hi David,

    Let me know if you'd like the box score from the game.

    If so, send me your e-mail so I can respond directly.

  12. Tips for Appreciating Baseball?

    David, Perhaps you're slightly misremembering the game. I can't find any 1-0 pitched by Andy Ashby over the Dodgers. The closest is a 3-0 win by Ashby on April 16, 1999. Ashby had a complete game shutdown. He went all the way giving up 5 hits, striking out 8, and walking 2.
