    So you pick up a disk, nothing special, cheesy looking portrait of the composer on the front. Famous composer's greatest hits. that form of words is an instant turnoff for me, but at least it's Handel, who seemed incapable of writing a bad tune. Have a look at the spine, and it's CBS Masterworks. OK, now I'm getting a bit interested.

    So who are the artists performing these "greatest hits". Holy Shit! It's everyone who was ever anyone: Philadelphia Orchestra/Ormandy - Mormon Tabernacle Choir - E Power Biggs - London Phil/Boult.

    I'll take this one as a win, and play it next

    Handel's Greatest Hits

    The seventh and final LP has mentions of fragments. I'll assume that it represents an 11th unfinished symphony?

    Possibly. I don't know. I'll take a look at this and report back. I never got around to listening to these disks, having become paranoid about inadvertently wrecking the case.

    I'm not familiar with the D numbers which seem to be used to classify Schubert's work. Something else I'll have to take a look at, and which might throw some light on the fragments. My CD case calls them "symphonic fragments". Looking at the case, only 10 symphonies are listed, so it appears that the fragments are indeed the 11th.

    Since it seems to be traditional to die after having composed one's 9th symphony, I'm assuming that Schubert tried, and failed, to beat the odds. He probably should have spoken to Mozart, who managed 40+ symphonies, even though he died young.

    Edited for corrections of composition numbers

    I was so impressed with the earlier Michael van Merwyk video that looked for another. This shows his band live.

    The Coltrane was a little too intense for the time of night; had to table it after Side 1 for now. Plus, it's late and I'm over-budget again, time-wise. Have to say goodnight for now, but first, I must highly recommend this video. Regardless of how you feel about modern-day Crosleys, this is a bit of a scream. Watch it for as long as you can; there are several "pay-off" points. Enjoy:

    Listening to "Look Sharp" when I had a thought: How many songs do you know of start with the bridge ? "Is She Really Going Out WIth Him" does.
