Performing 4 times between now and the end of the year.

The other person interviewed, Terry Cannon, is a wonderful person who, besides running the Baseball Reliquary now, also founded Pasadena Filmforum in 1975.  Pasadena Filmforum evolved into Los Angeles Filmforum, which I now run.

Thanks for the heads up! I try to catch Bobby any time I can. The 29th date conflicts with the Makoto Kawashima concert I'm going to but I should be able to catch another date or two.

The CD from this suite will be released soon.  Terry Cannon, who organized it, died on Sunday of cancer and one of his last acts was editing the liner notes by Lynell George.  It's also been mastered.  Not sure when pressing will happen now, but I don't think Terry's passing will delay it long.

Terry was also the first one to invite Mark Cantor to present a show of jazz films, which he did at Pasadena Filmforum in the late 1970s.  

Here's more on Terry, that I just sent out:

No address on the cd package - only the logo for The Baseball Reliquary. Maybe they can be of help.

Another Jackie with long legs.

Long, but not skinny.

I purchased this a couple weeks ago in Pasadena. The shopowner said Bobby dropped them off himself a couple days before. One spin so far and it's very excellent.

i ordered through the baseball site, but it looks like it was fulfilled by Cryptogramaphone. That's what the return address was on the package.No idea about bandcamp, but it seems like it should be in there somewhere, unless this is a really limited edition for baseball people.

Yep. He said Bobby comes in from time to time to shoot the breeze and tell stories.
