Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer - Rankin Bass TV soundtrack - Decca mono

The CD of this is one of the most horribly mastered CDs I've ever heard. The vinyl sounds much better.

Various - Christmas Gift 'Rap - Motown stereo

Xmas comp, pre-Jackson 5ive.

Music For Torching - Billie Holiday - Verve label.

The back of the cover has some nice candids taken by Norman Granz.

Accompanying Billie are:

Jimmy Rowles on piano

Harry Edison on trumpet

Benny Carter on alto-sax

Larry Bunker on drums

and

John Simmons on bass

Nice collection that includes one of my favourites, "I Don't Want To Cry Anymore."

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.

Unit Structures was a little late - 1966 - so its first edition was with New York USA labels.

My copy has the Bluenote label with Division of United Artist in the spot where Liberty is usually seen. I'd never noticed this before because I friend had given it to me years ago and I wasn't going to look a gift horse in the mouth. I don't think I have other examples of this old style Bluenote label with United Artist on it. The cover btw, has the 43 West 61st St. address on it.

I'm listening to Sergio Mendes Favourite Things (Atlantic) Blue/Green label and now that I've read this thread, I think I'll play

Cecil Taylor's Indent (Unit Core) next.

Maybe somebody could help out more with this, but as I understand it this switch occurred shortly after Transamerica/UA bought out Liberty. This was an interim label design between the blue/white Liberty label and the black/cerulean UA label.

I've had the Cecil in this version, as well as a plain ol' blue/white Liberty, before settling on a NY Mono. (no, I didn't keep all three!)
