Bernard Herrmann - Vertigo OST - Mercury (Netherlands, stereo)

OST conducted by Muir Mathieson.

This pressing is from the 70s. The tapes used for this album sound SO much better than those on the CD. No idea if they're the same tapes, or if the masters just went to hell between the 1970s and 90s.

A couple of LPs I picked up in Seattle a few days ago, starting with one of the unintentionally funniest album titles of all time:

Johnny Hodges/Charlie Shavers - A Man and His Music (Storyville). Hodges has one side, Shavers the other. The heart of each side is a mid-50's broadcast by each man with Columbus pianist Al Waslon and his trio. Each broadcast is excellent and relaxed; the leaders sound good, as does the little-known Waslon, who I believe played with Jimmy Dorsey earlier. A personal note: my first wife, who was a Johnny Hodges fan, had this album, and for years I've been mourning my separation from it - not from her so much.

Vernard Johnson - Live (Glori). He's introduced as "the world's greatest gospel saxophonist," and that's about right. This makes my fifth album by Brother Vernard - they're all great.

Illinois Jacquet: Midnight Slows Vol. 8 (Black & Blue)

Is that the one with Hank and Sir Charles (if memory serves)? It starts with a killer version of All Too Soon. If it's the same recording, mine had a different photo.

You have a good memory - same record.

Bobby Hutcherson - Total Eclipse (BN 1985 "revival" pressing). This is my first hearing of this album - I was prompted to seek it out by the high esteem in which it's held around here. I'm not disappointed.

What a price.. (albeit one requiring a time machine to take advantage of now). Hopefully no noisy hiss !

Reminder to self to get my copy out..
