Funny thing about this record is that on most copies the labels are switched, so that many listeners who know AMM and MEV only from this LP, will have a complete wrong idea about the music of both groups.

When I found the album 15 years or so ago, I figured it out pretty quickly from reading the liner notes. The random silences inserted into the AMM side (and mentioned in the notes) make it obvious.

Yeah, I think that by the time I picked up a copy I was already aware of the mistake.

Now, on that tip:

Musica Elettronica Viva - Friday - (Polydor, UK orig)

Oooh...that one bugs me.  I'm totally happy with the alga marghen CD, yet I know it wouldn't take too much to buy an original ($200 or so?) so sometimes I think about it.    However if I follow that logic with every record I like I'd have to remortgage my house :0

Bunky Green - Places We've Never Been (Vanguard). I just found a sealed copy to replace my less-than-pristine copy of an album I really love.

Charlie Christian / Wardell Gray - Tribute From Sweden (Fran Staterna). A Boris Rose production, purporting to be from Sweden. Some rare airchecks here, mostly by Benny Goodman small groups from different periods.

The Schwindt is good. The Meinert that he reissued is great. Bertil Strandberg "Cirrus" coming down the pike soon enough.

Now spinning:

Hank Mobley - Hank - (Blue Note 1560, Toshiba Japanese pressing)

The Meinert sounds (to my ears) more derivative - none the worse for that but it has a heavy and obvious Trane-like sound. Both are exemplary reissues. Clearly a label to watch 

 

NP, first spin of......

Julius Hemphill --- Roi Boye & The Gotham Minstrels-----( Sackville )

Yes, I like the reissue they did of the Meinert. Wonder what they will put out next?

Lou Bennett et son Orchestre --------Enfin !--------( RCA France)

French edition of this lively album recorded in Paris in 1963. Rene Thomas is on guitar. Curiously Jane (sp) is credited to Arnett Coleman (sp) . I've not previously come across that spelling of Coleman's first name.

It is a bit derivative, at least at first, but like many things it doles out its charms and originality over time.
