That went out the door when Dick Hyman and Dick Wellstood played a duet on "Cherry".

I'd mention a couple of old actors named O'Toole and Bonerz, but that would take us even further off topic...

Chu Berry...

Though that's not dirty. Kinda cute, even.

Chuck Berry, too.

If Rollins keeps putting out records, why should we buy them if he's giving short weight?

Who says you should?

You should.

Keeping in mind that Silver City collects most, but not all of the highlights of the period it covers and is probably the best choice for the "casual" fan of Rollins' 70s and beyond work (and I know a fair number of people for whom the issue of not liking this later work is simply a matter of them not liking Sonny's tone, or not likeing electric bass, or not liking any number of things that have nothing to do with the actual quality of the music itself other than personal taste as to style and such), here's the Milestone albums I keep coming back to and finding new dicoveries and enjoyments . They also contain material is not included in in the Silver City box that I would have included if I was compiling such a set.

So Jim, which Milestone cuts do you have on your personal Silver City list? I am finding much of this material to be interesting and would welcome your thoughts.

Gee Jim, I thought you could toss this off the top of your head ;)

At your convenience, I would enjoy your thoughts ... if it is anything more than a complete labor of love for you, no need to bother :)

Having said that, I am enjoying my own spin back through this material. Lots of surprises and lots of regrets!

Some days Jim can't find the top of his head. Me too. :g

Some days I'm not even sure if I have a head... :g

That about sums it up, I think. There's more gems there than are generally given credit for, but not as many as "we" would like. It's a complicated mess, but if you wade through it all w/o expecting the "records" to be like they were back in the day, there's cumulatively more than a little great Rollins playing to be had
