The Steve Gadd Band RSD release is just awesome. Great music, exceptional pressing / mastering. So good it'll make anyone's system sound better lol

Along those same lines, picked up the Tommy Bolin live release "Taste" . And if it wasn't in poor taste (reference the complete title) , I'd say it sucked. Has to be one of the worst record titles ever, in addition to poor selections/ poor recordings/ poor remastering etc. If that was the best they could do, they should have left them in the can lol  I like his music but this is a waste of $.

Picked up a few new releases recently, and the one I've fallen in love with is  Nils Lofgren  Blues with Lou. Makes me remember why I've been a fan for such a long time now.  Not the ultimate recording or pressing, but what few shortcomings it has, are much more than made up by the songs / music/ writing. A great listen.... will be in regular rotation. Jim

Following up on the Doctor John theme, I pulled out New Orleans Piano, by Fess, aka Roy Byrd, aka Professor  Longhair.

Great Crescent city R & B.

I just found this used.   I've wanted to buy it ever since it came out.   Maybe I'll get his new one in seven years, LOL.

Pressed in Japan on Quiex vinyl.   Plus I had the good fortune of seeing Ozawa conduct this at Symphony Hall back in the day...

 Solstice -Ralph Towner on ECM (West German pressing)

Picked up about 25 mint ECMs last Monday.   A friend bought a 500+ lot of LPs that included about 250 ECMs.  I'm a long time fan so these are getting some heavy rotation.  Some Jarrett, a few Towners , some DeJohnette, Abercrombie, a couple Kenny Wheelers.  Should keep me busy for a while.
