                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A very nice early 70's outing from Roy and friends.  It was originally released 
as The Roy Eldridge Sextet.  Not sure when the title got changed.  This might 
have been included in an anthology or compilation on here, but I didn't see the 
album title itself listed when I searched with Newsbin.  I dubbed this off of 
Tidal Music Service, and it is supposed to be a lossless CD quality stream.  I 
used 48k/16 bit settings with Cool Edit Pro as the .wav editor.  Tracks are 
trimmed to approximate the times below but by no means perfect.  Since it's a 
stream rip and not a CD rip there aren't .log or .cue files.  Take it for what 
it's worth but it sounds good to me.

ps: I usually am not great about replying to re: posts in the group.  Not to be 
an ass or anything, but I'm usually off doing other stuff and don't lurk the 
groups nearly as much as I used to.  However, I do try to pad the releases with 
plenty of .pars to help them survive in the wild.  Other than that I'm not much 
of a talker (other than here, hehe.)  I thought it was high time I gave back a 
little to the binary groups and this one in particular.  Hope you enjoy it if 
you grab it.  - mm
