                                 Release Notes
Here's an old Benny Golson release that hasn't been posted in awhile on here, 
maybe never.  Definitely not my favorite of his.  I'm not even sure this thing 
qualifies as jazz.  Sounds a bit too Superfly meets the Bee Gees meets 70's 
soft rock to me, but perhaps that's your bag.  Opinions are like assholes as 
they say...

It was sourced through a lossless CD quality webstream feed courtesy of Tidal 
music service.  Rip was done through an Asus Xonar DG sound card using Cool 
Edit Pro.  I ripped it at 48k/16 bit settings.  Also, I totally silenced any 
residual system noise between the tracks with the wave editor.  Since this is 
not a CD rip, there won't be .log and .cue files. 

Because of the lack of documentation, the hardcore collectors probably should 
steer clear of it.  However, for the casual listener it'll be a peachy keen 
chance to disco out on the living room rug with your dog.  Track timings should 
be approximate to what's listed below but they won't be perfect.  This is the 
original release and doesn't contain any of those extended disco mixes that the 
CD versions had.  (The world simply doesn't need more extended mix dance 
versions.  You're welcome.)

This is my way of giving back to the binaries and this group in particular.  
Here's the Wiki on it.  Peace out, leeches. - mm

Killer Joe is an album by Benny Golson recorded in 1977 and released by the 
Columbia label. This was Golson's first jazz album in over a decade when his 
career has been devoted to writing music for television and motion pictures.

Allmusic	2/5 stars

The Allmusic review states, "This album broke Golson's long hiatus in America 
and reintroduced him to the domestic jazz audience, but it wasn't quite the hit 
for him as for Quincy Jones".
