Bebop Spoken There

Paul Edis: "One of the regulars at The Gala today called me a 'turncoat' and another a 'deserter' - that's a very northern way of displaying affection in response to the news that I'm leaving the area. 'They're vicious down there mind you'. " - (Twitter January24, 2020)

Bird Lives in Hood Street (Newcastle)

Browsing through the music & film section of the Oxfam shop on Hood Street, Newcastle I noticed they had "Bird Lives" by Ross Russell.
As I already have a copy of this book which, incidentally, is an invaluable tome for jazz ornithologists I didn't bother checking the price but for those without a copy it may be worth popping in or giving them a ring.
I know there has been a lot of flack aimed at Oxfam from second hand book dealers - whether you agree or disagree is not relevant here - I'm merely pinpointing the whereabouts of a book that should be on everyone's bookshelf and is probably not on sale anywhere else in the locality.
Lance.
