    Well done, gentlemen! Collectively you've got them all solved, save for the SIX (will be a tough nut to crack. Hint - the players are all American), and the SEVEN has proven to be a sleeper. I thought EIGHT would be a gotcha, but Sangrey made it out fast. Only one of you got the THREE right...surprisingly.

  4. Alice Cooper - KILLER On 1971 wafer-thin vinyl. Sounds the way it was intended. Halo of Flies. Dead Babies. How appropriate…….
  5. How's this? It's on every new vinyl releases page in the world. What a nice record! This is from the collection I wrote about a couple of weeks ago. Howard McGhee is such a gem on this album.

    Do you by chance wear a fedora that you skillfully throw on the antler wall hook with your right hand, while holding a glass of Tom Collins and a smoldering Lucky Strike in your left?

    3.5 gram vtf is nothing terrible. If you're buying 1950s-1960s records, many, if not most of them were tracked by much heavier cartridges, and are still well-listenable.

    I accept the possibility that this photo was taken at the Village Vanguard. 1. Tables are the same, or similar, but tables are tables, they could be replaced. 2. In the background, we can see a wall, with wooden staves. In my opinion, this is a partition between the main floor and the section of tables lined up along the wall. 3. To Lee's left we can see a small section a velvet curtain, for which the Village Vanguard is famous. Lee appears to be seating on the stage, his back touching the curtain. Approximate position is in front of where George Cables is seated on this photograph. I'm trying to find a photograph of the view from the stage. Meanwhile, I think Lee may have been seated on the edge of the far left of the stage, where the speaker is hanging now. We can see the partition on this photograph. It's on the right. Did Lee and Hank perform at the Vanguard?
  10. Not a very good singer, in my opinion. Just happened to be in the right place, as fate would have it. Also not sure I see her being 'the face of bossa nova"....maybe in America in 1964 she was.
  11. Well, if that indeed is the new law of the land in USA, good luck to the European and Japanese collectors buying records on the interwebs. The sales of rare albums will move back to the record fairs and record stores, where they were before eBay took over.
  12. Since the first Black Saint title was Billy Harper's, I guessed the same, but it doesn't look like him. https://media.gettyimages.com/photos/billy-harper-portrait-holding-tenor-saxophone-at-his-apartment-new-picture-id1364245277

    If the seller accepts returns, might as well give the old pressing a spin.
