Phil Woods And His European Rhythm Machine

I bought this new when I was still in High School many years ago at a bookstore called The Owl & The Turtle in Camden, Maine. I didn't know anything about Phil Woods, I just thought 'His European Rhythm Machine' sounded like it had to be bad ass. I listened to it many many many times. You can sorta tell on a couple spots if you listen to it. It's still mostly a decent sounding quality copy. I'm sure the quality of the performance will make it worthwhile.

Jackie Gleason Lonesome Echo

I have always had a strange relationship with this record. The cover is certainly a worthy addition. When I bought it 13 years ago, that was what caught my eye. But it was then that I realized Jackie Gleason was THE Jackie Gleason. I never pictured Ralph Kramden in the company of Salvador Dali, but there you have it on the back cover. I've since seen a few other Jackie Gleason albums with less thrilling album covers and bought them. The music on these Jackie Gleason records are interesting to me. This one I think I like the best. It's so mellow. Mandolins and oboe. It has enhanced my moods on a few notable occasions.

Folklore Andino, Ecos de Los Andes

The stringed instruments are very crisp and clean. These musicians can STRUM. I really like the cover photo.
