Just returned from an Atlanta used record store that always seems to have amazing gospel records - MG knows the one. Right now I'm listening to Rev. W. Leo Daniels' sermon Looking for a Bargain (Peacock). Also picked up an Ernest Franklin Savoy LP (with Arthur Scales on saxophone), but the real find was a 1971 Glori LP, Brother Vernard Johnson (I guess he wasn't "Dr." yet) with the Washington State Youth Choir, Give Up to God. Sorry, MG.

Freddie King: Freddie King 1934-1976 (Polydor)

This one has sat on the shelf for 15+ years, and I just pulled it out to give it a spin. Sometimes we forget that there are forgotten diamonds nearby. Freddie was a blues monster--certainly one of the best.

John Coltrane: Coltrane Time (UA/King Japan) - aka Hard Driving Jazz

Producer's record that didn't come off the way it might have if it were Cecil, Trane, and compatible musicians. That said, I enjoy listening to it - Cecil playing his thing, Trane trying to find a way to react/interact with Cecil, Kenny Dorham playing K.D. and probably getting more pissed about Cecil's playing by the minute, Israels & Hayes just trying to keep the peace. Don't listen to this often, but when I do I always find good things to hear.

Knowing Cecil a bit, I'd guess he was looking forward to KD's participation.

Never met him, but from hearing him speak at a Q/A session about 45 years ago, I have the sense that he can enjoy stirring things up.
