I think I woulda bought that Esoteric ES 548 LP as well. That's Charlie Christian with Dizzy Gillespie at Minton's Playhouse from May 1941. You probalby already know about JAZZDISCO DOT ORGEbay also shows the LP being issued in Japan by Columbia, and it LOOKS LIKE THIS.

Hey Barrie, Yeah I should've bought it. I didn't because I had never even heard of Charlie Christian 'till yesterday. It looks like the Japan cover in your link w/out the obi of coarse.
I think there was a 10" first, then a 12" in 1957 which is the one I found.
Then there are later reissues on a couple of different labels counterpoint, everest, etc.
Strange why they have it titled "Charley". I have a week to go back and grab it since it was found at Half Price Books. Pretty cool they hold for a week and you get the time to see if it's worth their crazy prices. This one was only 9.99 so if indeed it's the 1957 press it will be coming home with me. Very Happy

I would buy that Charlie Christian LP. I've got a bunch of Benny Goodman 78s featuring Christian on guitar. Great stuff! Check out the tune "Solo Flight" for a taste. Not my record, but here's one that somebody put up on Youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3t7S2PeiJgg

That's Charlie Christians final recording, I think. He had tuberculosis and died in march 1942. GO GET THAT RECORD NO MATTER WHAT!

I love Half-Price Books. That's the store that started my collecting back in the 1970's, those in Texas. WOOHOO!

Miles Davis Vol. 2- W.63 Blue Note DG, Vinyl is pretty abused. Cover is nice except bottom ss and name on back. Only paid 2 bucks at the record shop since the vinyl was so nasty.
I'd have paid that for the cover alone. It'll be a nice display piece.

Nice finds Hood. By the way, did you get that Charlie Christian record? Christian was a monster player and influenced so many.....

I totally forgot about it until it was too late. I'd hoped they had just restocked it but no, it was gone. Maybe it'll turn up again around here, who knows. I do see the same ones recycled here a lot.

    Amongst many just released nowadays records, I got this:

      'The Hi-Lo's and All That Jazz'- The Hi-Lo's (US Columbia (6 eyes) stereo - CS 8077, 1958)

    This one is in amazingly condition, cover: VG (top seam split and bend of bottom right corner), vinyl: (strong) "VG+". Someone must have loved this album and superbly cared for it.
    By the way, original U.S. albums of this time are more than just scarce over here in Germany.

Not jazz, (well there is some jazz on it) but I picked this up for super cheap at a record show here in Boston recently.

I know a little about it, I understand it's considered the forst "rock" lp, ever. It's a pretty hard record to find, do you think the guys on the rock boards might know anything about it?
