Bebop Spoken There

Alan Barnes: "Normally you can cobble a set together with five guys on the back of an envelope over the first pint and it's just fine. Livestreaming isn't like that." - (Jazzwise July 2021)

Christmas may come early if you collect vinyl!

What do you expect to find when tidying up your vinyl collection?   Well,  Ken Drew recently tidied up some recent additions to his vinyl collection, and found two LPs which he doesn’t remember buying, despite being worthy of adding to his collection.  They’re in a carrier bag brandishing the seller's name, and are both shrink-wrapped so are brand-spanking-new!  The photo shows  the bag and a leaflet – but what are the contents ? 

The most likely place Ken acquired these was at the last GIJF  (2018!)  whilst tidying up the Jazz North East stall, late on the Sunday night.  But everyone was a bit jazzed-out by then and they were in a rush to pack things away.


So, if anyone has a distant memory of buying but not being able to find nor play a couple of misplaced LPs then contact Ken by Messenger/DM  on Facebook.  Tell him what the 2 LP titles/performers are, and he’ll arrange to post them after the Xmas rush.
