This is being discussed elsewhere on the Board. Giving it a spin (fine album, my copy is the stereo release)

I never saw that Carl Wilson album before.

I was thinking Horst Jankowski !

Now spinning:

'Miles Davis' Greatest Hits' (Columbia 2-eye, stereo). Picked up today for £3 and trounces my 70s UK pressing.

Followed by Miles Davis 'Quiet Nights' (Dutch CBS, mono). Strange and exotic issue with 60s heavy vinyl orange label and what looks like a sort of facsimile sleeve, printed front and back creased over with no joins top and bottom. Bizarre ! Maybe they ran out during the initial print run?

(updated to say that the sound quality of this Dutch mono issue is superb. Definitely the best I've heard for this title).

Jankowski wears glasses! :P

Will give this a spin later today - I have to stop piling up CDs on the lid of my turntable ... :w

A few days ago I put on this magnificent Mongo Santamaria album - Hubert Laws plays some fantastic solos here. It's a shame Columbia never really cared about reissuing the Mongo albums he made for them.

Miles Davis 'Miles Smiles' (German CBS, stereo). Unusual front cover - white sleeve, red text. Classy !

George Girard - Stompin' at the Famous Door (Vik mono). Girard was a talented New Orleans Dixieland trumpeter. This album has one of my favorite New Orleans clarinetists, Harry Shields, but also, unfortunately, Paul Edwards on drums - he turns every tune into over-the-top Bourbon Street dixieland. Girard is a little over the top himself at times, but mostly sounds fiery and imaginative. I can only imagine how he would have sounded with a little more maturity - seven months after this album was recorded, he was dead of cancer at age 26.

The Garner contains a great harpsichord piece!

And the Doyle is surprisingly good!

Artie Shaw - The Sideman Years (Sounds of Swing). Some well-known sides here, but also quite a few unusual rarities. I particularly like the 1934 Wingy Mannone date with Bud Freeman, Dickie Wells, and Jelly Roll Morton.

Jimmy Gourley Quartet "No More" Musica (France) - Parisian 1981 session with Lou Levy (and Dju Berry on 2 tracks)- decent session. Was Dju contracted to Concord ?

The Holy Modal Rounders: The Moray Eels Eat the Holy Modal Rounders (Elektra/Sundazed)

A prime example of an album recorded under the influence. I'm a HMR fan and I'll keep this record - it's actually fun to listen to in limited doses - but I'm sure I'll play others of theirs more than this one.

The World of Duke Ellington, Volume 3 (Columbia) Beautiful music; this series was really over-processed, but a mono cartridge makes it much more listenable.

He had just signed with Concord and had started recording a couple of albums for the label.

Now spinning:

Albert Ayler 'Swing Low, Sweet Spiritual' (Osmosis)

Ayler playing his "roots". That's a record that's often overlooked and shouldn't be.
