    Blast from the past

    Browsing Ebay I came across a copy of a 1955 LP I had bought when in Cyprus with the RAF and enjoyed for quite a few years until it went to that big turntable in the sky.

    Called Blow Hot Blow Cool, it features Herbie fields sextet on one side and on the other a group calling themselves the Melrose Avenue Conservatory Chamber Music Society, actually Marty Paich and a few others.

    It should arrive later this week, I'll have to see if I can remember how to connect the Turntable: it should also be an excuse to copy a few more Vinyl tracks to the hard drive.

    Might post a short clip or two if any one's interested. Had a look on You tube and couldn't find any of the tracks there.
    Cheers MIKE.

    My very first LP a 10 inch LP mono, no date on it but I would guess late 50s early 60s, could not get all of it in the scanner, still plays ok and good music.

    Arrived this morning, played it through, no noticeable clicks or scratches, but cover is badly worn, but then one doesn't play the cover! Also found further copies on discogs. Hunted all over for samples, - nowt!

    Anyone that knows me will not be surprised that my first LP was T for Trombone by Jack Teagarden, which I still Have
