  1. Great LP. I have this one, too!

    1. Hi,

      I have heard this LP on a lousy copy but I like the music and there is no download available anywhere. Are you willing to post it (if possible in good quality)?
      Thanks and best regards

    2. Generally I post only samples. And in this case, the quality of my quality isn't top shelf. Thanks for asking!

    3. I provide some details hoping that you will make an exception in this case, because the record has not been commercially available for almost half a century and I cannot find a download either.
      It is Bill Barron on sax, young Kenny Barron on piano and Ron Carter on bass at a time when they needed money....
      Bill Barron has long passed away, but I contacted Kenny and he himself is not in possesion of any copy!
      You see: It is really a chance to keep this record from being forgotten!

    4. I see. That does make a difference. I checked my files. I suspect that because the pressing was a bit rough, that I decided not to save the entire LP. Now the question is... where did I put that record? My filing system here leaves a little to be desired. Let me see if I have enough luck to locate the record and I will post the entire file.

  2. Thank you!! I really appreciate your effort and I hope you are successful in finding the record. If possible please choose a good bitrate. I forgot to mention: Charlie Persip on drums.
    And: You have a new fan and follower.

  3. In the meantime I have played all songs two or three times - thanks a lot again. The record is not perfect, but a lot better than the tape I heard before.
    The only thing (I am even hesitating to ask after all you did already) - would it be possible to post it with a higher bitrate (like 256 or 320)? The dynamics of the sax would be so much better.
    But anyway - I am very grateful!
    Best regards from Austria / Europe


Howdy! Thanks for leaving your thoughts!
