-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I searched the groups and a lot of Buddy's stuff has died out.  So, I guess 
I'll post a few from The Prince of Darkness himself, as Johnny Carson once 
referred to him.  When I was a kid I liked to see Buddy come on The Tonight 
show.  I played drums in the high school band, so of course I stayed up past my 
bedtime to get a chance to see Buddy play with Doc Severenson and the band.  
Carson was a pretty good drummer himself, as most people suspected by his habit 
of tapping pencils on the desk.  It was clear that Buddy was one of his 
favorite regulars, and that acerbic, utra dry wit of Rich's certainly wasn't 
lost on Johnny.

Here is a very early solo effort of Rich's that he recorded with Harry Edison 
in glorious monophonic.  Track timings are kinda tight on some of these tracks, 
so if you burn it without the 2 second gap it'll sound more as intended 
originally.  Enjoy it - MM

This originated from a lossless audio stream rip from a Tidal music service 
subscription of mine.  Rip was done using an Asus Xonar DG sound card.  Wave 
editor was Cool Edit Pro using 48k/floating 32 bit settings.  It was then 
converted down to 24 bit using DbPowerAmp, then converted to flac files. The 
only changes done were the total silencing of any random system noise between 
tracks. (For those of you in the .mp3 binaries, I compressed it further to 320 
kb/s with DbPowerAmp using Lame encoder.)  Track timings will approximate that 
of the original release but are by no means exact to the second.  

Because of the lack of .log and .cue files it probably won't be something a 
hard core collector wants.  But it's plenty good enough for the average 
listener. In terms of sound quality, I see no reason why it should be 
distinguishable from your garden variety CD.  Tracks are tagged and I put some 
info in the comments section about the source and .wav gathering, just to keep 
the digital gene pool organized.  If possible I'll try to find some artwork off 
the web to include with it.
