  2. Item: Duke Ellington/Johnny Hodges - Blues Summit 2 Record set Location: Langwarrin Price: $22 plus $8 postage Item Condition: VG/VG+ Reason for selling: Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: World Record Club reissue of the Verve recording. One of my favourite sax players and inspired playing by all. Hard to let this duplicate set go. Not sure why some sleeves were red and some blue. "This features altoist Johnny Hodges and trumpeter Harry "Sweets" Edison leading a sextet that found Duke Ellington on piano. The repertoire is inspired, a variety of jam tunes including several by W.C. Handy, and both Sweets and Hodges are heard at their most expressive. The remainder of this two-fer teams Hodges and trombonist Lawrence Brown with tenor-great Ben Webster and the exciting trumpeter Roy Eldridge; this time Billy Strayhorn is on piano and the music is almost as memorable. Highly recommended in one form or another." Pictures:

  7. Item: Nitty Gritty Dirt Band - Uncle Charlie Location: Langwarrin Price: $10 plus $8 postage Item Condition: VG+VG+ Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Tx Extra Info: SLYL934016 Australian pressing. Nice quiet surfaces, good dynamics. Gatefold sleeve. New inner sleeve and crystal clear outer sleeve. The first album issued by the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band after they had temporarily disbanded in 1969, this greatly expanded their pop audience, due primarily to the Top 10 hit cover of Jerry Jeff Walker's "Mr. Bojangles" (which actually wasn't a hit until early 1971). The group moved into a more accessible rock-oriented fusion of country, bluegrass, pop, and rock & roll, relying primarily on smartly chosen covers of tunes by the likes of Walker, Mike Nesmith, Randy Newman, and Kenny Loggins. Few bands had incorporated instruments more commonly associated with country and bluegrass, particularly mandolin and banjo, as comfortably into a rock setting prior to this release, and their well-crafted harmonies help put the songs over for those not-steeped-in backwoods sounds. It was an extremely diverse program for a country-rock album, too, moving from rustic instrumentals and snippets of tapes of elderly musicians performing rural Americana to the Buddy Holly cover "Rave On." The group were actually at their best, though, when doing softer, melodic pop tunes. "Mr. Bojangles" was a deserved huge success in that regard, but Nesmith's "Some of Shelley's Blues" and Loggins' "House at Pooh Corner" were almost as catchy and appealing. Pictures:

    Ipods are classics!

    That will be welcome news for those still using one of the most iconic and memorable DAPS ever. Used mine also on a dock sucking digital into into an outboard DAC. That micro setup has long been replaced though with Raspberry pi and dac hat fed by an SSD and controlled by wifi on the tablet.
