It's Real George! - George Shearing & Bobby Freeman

Fire One

Also Starring Bobby Freedman And His Group

A split disc between Shearing and Freedman. The engineering or the "reprocessing" of mono to strereo on Shearing's side sounds pretty awful. In contrast the sound on Freedman's side (B) is, by far, better even if not necessarily "stereo" worthy.

  1. I'm not surprised. The Shearing sides were recorded by MGM Records as 78s between 1949 and 1951.
