If a certain rare Charlie Earland recording is on its way, Jim, do I get a lifetime exemption?

Sh! Don't tell Chuck... I have to see him tomorrow.

All this organ shit is getting old.  I say we take over the board and initiate a new, crisp, fresh, HIP instrument theme!...

As long as it's electric. We don't like no pussified acoustic instruments around here!

Mount some pickups on that baby!

HOly...!! Are YOU thinkin' what I'M thinkin'? :excited:

Well, I have about half of those, but I only post half as often as most board members (if that) so I should be ok.

And I also have Teshissimo, which is my ace in the hole. Caught on private security tape, the members of Organissimo secretly rehearse the music of John Tesh. To be released as a bootleg DVD if I am kicked off the board ...

and his recent aquisition of his first Brother Jack McDuff record

In all fairness, it's my first Prestige McDuff (I have a couple of his Blue Notes), but that's still no excuse for being so unhip. :P

What if one owns your album? Is there a free pass for not having all 10?

:g

er.... regarding your album. Is that on the way?

It's not that I don't like organ jazz, I do. I have at least a dozen Jimmy Smith's, three Freddy Roach BN's, Reuben Wilson, the Big John Patton Select AND a Jimmy McGriff LP that he autographed for me years ago. Still, I feel the B-3 is underrepresented in my collection. What I like is guys who play the instrument, as the expression goes, with all the stops pulled out. I like that huge, fat sound - like the Gerald Wilson Mosaic cuts that feature Groove Holmes as part of the GW big band. So, my question is where can a guy, and everyday guy like me, get a little action...some genuinely house rockin', balls to the wall B-3? Recommendations please.

Up over and out.

Another vote for the Eddy Louiss date. Rene Thomas and Kenny Clarke round out the trio.

No mention of the greatest organ record of all time - "Face to Face". I once wrote "this record is the reason God allowed Mr Hammond to desecrate the organ".

You're damn right Chuck. Baby Face Willette's "Face To Face" is one of the Top Ten for SURE. Knew I had forgotten somebody very important.

O.K>Shirley Scott "Queen of the Organ" just got bumped to "honorable mention."

Forgetting, Baby Face. Damn me to hell.

Goodbye, my friends!

This is my last post, as I only have two of those albums, and I´ll be banned in a few hours. It´s been great!

I've got 5 of the 10 plus Don's Genius of the B-3 so that should count for something plus I only post 1/5 of Sangrey so I should be OK. :lol:

Does this count?

Was this really advertised on TV, as it states in the upper right corner? I'd love to see those commercials!!!

:lol:

If you were lucky and ordered in the first 10 minutes they would throw this little gem in as well.

No no NO no NO NO NO!!! "Queen of the Organ" is a KILLER date! It is worth the price of admission for Stanley's outro on "Just in Time" alone.

If we have to take off one, take off Bashin'.
