Archie Shepp - For Losers (Impulse). After close to 30 years, still quite possibly my favorite Shepp record. Discraceful that it's never been on CD anywhere, at least not that I know of.

This is a tough one to come by on vinyl too! I've tried to grab it on eBay a few times without any luck. I'd love to hear this some day.

Just grabbed a bunch of Van Morrison's records (later german and UK pressing): Astral Weeks, T.B. Sheets, It' too late to stop now.

I love this guy! :wub:

You're sorted ! :tup

Just spinning a UK original of Miles' 'Star People' (how did this one pass me by, especially when I caught this band live playing much of this stuff ;) ). Followed by a German original of 'Miles in Berlin' and the CBS-Sony of 'Miles in Tokyo'. Both in tip-top mint.

Aretha Franklin: Aretha- Live At Fillmore West (4 Men With Beards reissue)

Incredable!! The crowd sings along on Dr. Feelgood. Brother Ray drops by.

No one touches Redding for the live stuff, but she gives it a shot.

Benny Goodman - The Famous 1938 Carnegie Hall Jazz Concert.

This Is Tommy Dorsey - Big Band Music - 2 record set recorded between 1933 and 1944.

The set features Frank Sinatra, Bunny Berigan, Ziggy Elman, Charles Spivak and Buddy Rich and it is electrifying.

Love Is A Gentle Thing - Harry Belefonte

Belefonte Sings The Blues - Very interesting variation of Harry Belefonte's amazing talent. I had never heard him sing blues before and I am impressed.

Jirí Stivín & Co Jazz System - Five Hits in a Row (Supraphon)

a nice Czech effort from 1972 featuring Polish guest Zbigniew Seifert and US guest Barre Phillips. Stivín plays various flutes. This is pretty much all over the map and nicely jerky.

It sounds like some jam from Uncle Meat at times. Neat!

Stevie Wonder - Songs in the Key of Life (Motown) I need to find a mint original. My 2 copies have seen lots of play and abuse from my younger days.

Pure genius!!

A recent find I picked up at Second Story books the other day: Clark Terry Mumbles on Mainstream Records. Lots of latin feel to this one and I've played it twice today and I really like it. No recording dates or info on the liner notes, but some of the players include Richard Davis, Grady Tate and Jerome Richardson. Record is old but its in great shape.

New additions, finally getting some playing time:

Warne Marsh: All Music (Nessa) Nice, all the way around!! Real good sound on the piano. That poor instrument gets the short end very often.

Art Pepper: The Intimate (Analogue Productions) Artist House sides, but don't know if they saw the light of day before this(1996).
