Señor Calleverde:

That Searchers re-issue was given a glowing review in Shindig!

I'm a bit miffed that the SOHO jazz series is now being issued on CD with loads of extra tracks.  I bought them on vinyl and I feel a bit cheated!   >:(
On the jazz front there's the upcoming comp Martin Freeman And Eddie Piller Present Jazz On The Corner.  Both CD and vinyl have same track listing  ;D

Ady, amigo, the Searchers' reissue is a welcomed one, as I think the original albums were long out of print.

I've seen the "Jazz on the corner" comp mentioned by Dave in the main site, but I'm not sure if I'll pull the trigger, as I have many of the tunes already.

I understand how you feel about the "Soho Scene" series, but then it makes sense to add as many tracks as possible to the new CDs. My main issue with the last CD one is the poor remastering of some tracks and an uneven overall sound, but it's great value anyway.

The Z  - People of the Mirror World (Detour Records).  On first listening some tracks really stick out:  the glam pop of Everything's Alright and the spacey dub of Laser Love and the title track https://youtu.be/k2ocf1EGkrg
And will you shorten the sleeves, love? I'm not a gorilla.

Another recommended to me by the ever reliable Monkey of this parrish. Awaiting it's delivery, Ady, sounds like I won't be disappointed

Love the tune, Ady. And the clip, it reminds me of the late 60/early 70s animated movies from behind the Iron Curtain. I'll have to check out the mysterious Z.

Classic Blue Note there, especially the Hank Mobley album.

Love this song, but I can't make up my mind about which is the best cover. What do you think?:

And here's a nice clip of the writers playing it in a acoustic mode (with Pete Seeger as host)
