The Power of Feeling !!

I came across a pristine copy of this album, just yesterday. My guess
is that it remained in such great shape because it was the property of
KTXT FM Radio (the non-commercial station of Texas Tech University
in Lubbock, Texas). Now, how it ended up in Houston would be fun to
find out. Yes, it's in the same state but a drive between the two cities is
520 miles (8 hours)! And, if you know anything about Lubbock, it's not
exactly an area known to have many Jazz listeners. Anyway ... this
albums states that it's by Sir Edward, but that's actually a
pseudonym of Harold Vick. With that being said, you
know it's gonna be a killer. I got this rip years ago
from the fantastic Never Enough Rhodes. If you
aren't hip it this blog, you need to! There, you'll
find a treasure trove of music, and also, much
more in-depth research on the albums. Enjoy

    1. You're welcome! Never Enough Rhodes certainly blessed us with a great rip

  3. Wow, due to the pseudonym, I bet most jazz collectors don't even know this album exists! As for it's condition, I'd think it has more to do with "Lubbock... not exactly an area known to have many Jazz listeners." I'd also venture a student from Houston probably pinched it, thinking 'what the hell - no one wants to listen to this anyway.' In any event, thank you very much for this rarity.

    1. You may be right! Either way, it was a great score, and the rip via Never Enough Rhodes is top notch

    2. Rocky Mount Willie & Stocking Cap are two of my faves on this record!! I've spent hours...DAYS downloading from NER! Great find!!
