    You should see his stuff when he was part of 'Beyond the Fringe' in the early 60's. If it weren't for them, there would have been no Monty Python. I'll never forget the bit where he played a one-legged man auditioning with Peter Cook for the role of Tarzan. Then later I saw him play a concert at the Hollywood Bowl and was like.. whoa..What??. Quite a talented man.

    Rasputins Modesto had a ton of Nina Simone also. They also had 1 Lee Morgan, Jimmy Smith- Back to the Chicken Shack and I can't remember what else. Lots of artists name dividers but not much vinyl. Back on Record Store Day they were stocked up. Hope they are selling but I suspect they are having trouble with distributors. Lots of Rock titles though. At least 30 blues titles in stock. On checkout I asked if they carried MoFi inner sleeves. Nope, but she said she would bring in some poly-lined sleeves for me to look at. Next time I'll ask about reordering the Jazz titles.

    What a great post.:thumbsup: Most people only knew him as Arthur from the movies. But he was a very talented pianist. If I'm not mistaken I think he studied at Oxford. In his final interview before passing he stated the piano was what he missed the most.

    WOW!!! I'd would love to hear that once in my life...how does it sound on tape? (I'm a R2R newb even though I have a Revox G36 that needs restoration...)

    It sounds quite good. This release is 7.5IPS. I had another copy that was stored improperly and played OK, but this is clean and plays better. The "Something Else" tape is in excellent condition..I got it many years ago new in original shrink! That G36 (736) of yours is a lovely deck, especially when recapped and loaded with Telefunken tubes. Well worth restoring, so get on it! :rockon:

    Bought this yesterday at the Half Price Books sale with my 40% off coupon! Decided that it would be too busy today for the 50% off sale, too many people today! Going to stick with the 40% off sale from now on, seemed like a normal Saturday crowd.

    I wish! Unfortunately, it'll be a little while before I get to the Revox—I'm (very) slowly working through my vintage system and getting everything updated/restored. Man, this audio/vinyl obsession is expensive :D

    I had an interesting and enlightening conversation with Fred Cohen at the Jazz Record Center on Friday. He quizzed me on whether I was familiar with Contemporary Records recording engineer Roy DuNann (I wasn't), and then asked whether I knew of other recording engineers such as Tom Dowd at Atlantic (I did). He said it was really a shame that Roy wasn't more well-known, because he felt that the sound quality of Contemporary Records were of an even higher quality (for the period) than Blue Note recordings.

    This one is a 70s repress, but the sound is definitely crisp and balanced—almost modern in its presentation. And I really like Hampton Hawes here—
