  1. Great Finds

    I saw this for sale: 18 LPs by The Three Suns, only $1.00 each. Vow, I bought them sight unseen. What a deal, I thought. My favorite piano player Gene Harris, how could I go wrong. I got the LPs home, read a few back sides. What? No mention of Gene Harris. What are those strange names on the records? So I dug out my old Down Beat review books looking for Three Suns. No there, but wait, here's The Three Sounds AND Gene Harris on piano. I get cold, my heart starts to flutter, I reach for the Bourbon and decide to play one of the Three Suns Lps. WAIT! WAIT! My wife likes them, she does some research and tells me I've got most of the Three Sun's RCA LPs. She says that I got a real find. OK - I reach for another B.
  2. TONY PASTOR - "T" YOU'RE ADORABLE. I only listen to the first track: - DANCE WITH A DOLLY WITH A HOLE IN HER STOCKING - I've listened to that track for the tenth time. What a masterpiece of a tune. A real work of art. I'll play it on more.
  3. Any BAJA MARIMBA BAND LP I can lay my hands on. Right now it's HEADS UP! Long Live BAJA MARIMBA BAND. OLE!
  4. What is the best way to clean LPs?

    Oh Boy, I just came across this ranting by ME from almost 2 years ago. Time haven't changed much EXCEPT I found out what INANIMATE means. It means: "Not endowed with life or spirits." No wonder the Zerostat didn't work. Here I've been waisting my time trying to neutralize the whiskey effect. Oh well, time marches on!! By the way, I still play Artie Shaw records, but I make sure there's no whiskey effect. That way I enjoy Shaw more. Too good for a smilie! Laugh of the day!!!!! MG Thanks a lot, Magnificent Just for you I will hoist a Penderyn Single Malt Welsh Whisky cheers. ZEROSTAT, no, I've packed it away, doesn't do much to my system anyway. I am going back to my ROOTS, no more SUN RA listening! Since this is CRAZY OTTO INTERNATIONAL WEEK, I will play CRAZY OTTO LPs all week. Check 'What LP are you listening to' for further details.

  6. is it possible to repair scratches in vinyl?

    Re: A.L. his CEDAR and "Why is the sky blue?". I was looking out the window trying to figure this out, and suddenly it came to me, out of a clear blue sky: CLICK REPAIR (Just GOOGLE it to find out more). This is the most amazing software to digitize vinyl. (Free for 21 days, $35-- to buy. Works on both MAC and PC. It's written in Java.) I have used it for about a month. I have been able to remove all the clicks from vinyls automatically without the laboring process of wave repair. The software does it for you (wave repair). No need to spend $$$$$ when this tool does the job. Anybody use it? Comments please.

  8. is it possible to repair scratches in vinyl?

    I know this doesn't address the subject of scratches but the info is interesting: Shock-Waves--the Major Cause of Record Wear The major cause of record wear/damage is "shock-wave fracturing" . A pressure wave is produced by the phono stylus (needle) as it passes through the record groove. Rapidly moving pressure waves radiate from the two areas of stylus contact on the groove wall. These pressure waves travel ahead of the stylus as it moves along the groove in the same way as a bow wave moves ahead of a boat. When the pressure wave encounters a microcrack, flaws in the vinyl, or other surface imperfections, the energy builds up, forming a shock wave that can exceed the cohesive forces holding the surface together. When this happens, cracks occur in the vinyl and fragments can be blown off the groove wall. This kind of damage can occur on the very first play, and will increase exponentially as a function of both the number of plays and stylus loading. For more info check this site: http://www.lastfactory.com/record_wear.html Hip Hip Hooray for Pete Barbuti, the best cornbroom player in the world. Now tell me this: "How do you tune a cornbroom?"
  9. Scratches

    How dare you slur my favorite piano, vibraphone, cornbroom and penis player: Pete Barbuti. Barbuti is the only musician I have ever heard play "Tenderly" on the cornbroom, and he improvised too. And he could play "Holiday for Strings" with his nose and his "p". A fabulous musician. Now you answer this: Why is the sky blue?

  19. Creating CD copies from LPs

    I checked out that UK web site and found this: Skytronic AM/FM Antenna (is this part of the Skyhook family?). That reminded me of Alan Lowe (Why is the sky blue?) So where is Alan Lowe? This man is an expert on this subject (LP to CD). About a year ago there was quite a discussion about transferring LPs to CD. ALAN LOWE please respond and puzzle us with some more of your wits. Now for something different -- I just bought this: Wingy Manone with Papa Bue Viking Jazzband on Storyville LP. One of his last recordings (Manone).
  20. Your next Mosaic set

  21. Your next Mosaic set

    RED NICHOLS & HIS FIVE PENNIES. ssssshh.... this is secret!! (Jeff Healey is working on the project). Listen to Jeff Healey every Monday on www.jazz.fm - 9PM US Eastern Standard Time. Jazz from 1920s and 1930s, it's a great show. He is playing old scratchy 78s. Here's a Jeff Healy tid bit: "Benny Goodman banged Helen Ward". Keep a stiff upper lip!
  22. I am still spinning Woody Herman ---> Civilization (The rarest of rarest?) Here is how it goes: Bongo, Bongo, Bongo, I don't wan t to leave the Congo Oh, no, no, no, no! Bingle, bangle, bungle, I'm so happy in the jungle I refuse to go. ---> More to follow ?? Has anybody got the answer to A. Lowe's famous question; "Why is the Sky blue?" This is the rarest of questions?? Like wow Man! Hi Hi
  23. Rarest of Rarest: --- Woody Herman - Civilization from Capitol Xmas 1947 - That's the one that goes "Bongo, Bongo, Bongo, I don't want to leave the Congo etc. etc. The band has Stan Getz and Herbie Haymer in it. I once asked Stan Getz about it. I can't repeat his answer here, but he was in one of his "MOODS". 30 seconds later he was talking to my wife in Danish, charming as he could be, signing his autograph, laughing it up. Like Wow Man! Wow! This is one of my rarest Woody Herman's. Never on LP. Part of my Woody Herman in Disco Order. ALMOST COMPLETE WH! ALMOST?? Like Wow Man! Svend Asmussen quintet also did Civilization, somewhere in 1955?? on Odeon? If you want the words and music, just say Bongo, Bongo, Bongo. Hi Hi
  24. Chronological Jazz Classics, are they ok?

    Thanks Brownie. City Hall. US distributor lists the track name as -Blues Ice Size- hence my question. I guess I can order it from City Hall, didn't really realize that. Thanks again.
  25. Chronological Jazz Classics, are they ok?

    Re. George Wettling Classics (France) 1940 - 1944 track -Blues Ice Size- Is this the same as -Blues for Stu- on the Complete Commode Vol 2 LP#16. Does anybody know? Could somebody please post the master# for -Blues Ice Size- ? I am trying to fix bad LP tracks in the Commodore set. I am having a tough time locating lots ot stuff. It's like somebody cleaned out the relevant Classics (France) Cds. For example Hot Lips Page tracks from 1944, Albert Ammons tracks from 1944, George Brunies (or Brunis) from 1944 impossible to locate. Also some Ralph Sutton, Joe Bushkin. I have tried City Hall, Worlds Records, Tower, CD Universe, CD connection, eBay, as I said above, it's like somebody grabbed the stuff lately, just can't be found! Who has an answer? Thanks a lot.
