  1. The Duke Of Earl

    Here too. Not particularly memorable. Check out earlier soul hits like "Think Nothing About It", "What Now", "Man's Temptation" etc.
  2. The Duke Of Earl

    Gene Chandler did some great records in the early 60's, and that one is epic. It and "Stand By Me" hit me as hard as anything from the era. Agreed on the video, which I have never seen before. Not at all familiar with John(ny) Board, please enlighten us.
  3. Black Jazz & Tribe Records

    I'm a bigger fan than you of Black Jazz, especially the Doug & Jean Carn albums, but also several others. I have them all except for the Cleveland Eaton and the Gene Russell titles. Have never heard the Eaton. The Russell titles are pleasant but nothing meaningful.
  4. Black Jazz & Tribe Records

    I hear you, but "Kinda cool" isn't gonna justify a $299 price tag. I agree with you on never really getting into the label. Great historical/cultural interest, but musically not so much. I think the Marcus Belgrave is probably best of breed of what I've heard (which is probably close to the entire catalog if not all of it).
  5. Eric Dolphy on Blue Note?

    Good point!

    Not McBee on #13!
  8. Eric Dolphy on Blue Note?

    Sheila Jordan, Sonny Red, Duke Jordan, Dodo Greene, and there were others.
  9. Eric Dolphy on Blue Note?

    He died in June 1964 and my internet search says the album was not released until August 1964, so there would not have been time for anything concerning publishing or contract renewal, I don't think.

    Yes, an all-time favorite of mine. Love Buster Williams on this track.

    It's not something widely known, not like Sonny Fortune or Hubert Laws.
  12. BFT 201 - Link and Discussion

    No, 'tis not.
  13. BFT 201 - Link and Discussion

    Correct.
  14. BFT 201 - Link and Discussion

    LOL! Not a particularly well-known player, but someone I have seen live and have followed for decades.
  15. BFT 201 - Link and Discussion

    You got it!

    The whole Sun Ra crew have been located in the Germantown section of Philly for 50 years.

    Indeed it is. Wasn't sure if people would be familiar with Pitts at this late date.
