  2. Thank you for this.

    I've managed to track down a lot of these records through the years, but it is wonderful to have them together.

  3. How large are these two files? They've locked up your dropbox account so all of your poasts are unavailable. I'm happy to wait, but I don't want to clog things up. Zippy recently raised their per file size limit to 500mb. I don't know if that would help in this case, but they're free, so I thought I'd toss that out. Otherwise, I'll keep trying DB.

    1. I’ll definitely email you the files if you want to PM this blogs Facebook page? If not, I’ll try another route tomorrow

  4. Well, I apologize for the hiccup in accessibility. This happens EVERY time I share a large or numerous files. Dropbox says that I have reached my daily sharing limit of 100,000 (even though the post only shows viewership of around 300). So, I think it's BS. Either way. here's another source to grab them until the original links are back up ...

  5. wonderful, thank you. How about a guide to listening priorities?

    1. I would definitely start with The Awakening. Also, Doug Carn and Rudolph Johnson are wicked. To be honest, though, EVERY single album on that label is an 8, 9, or 10 rating. Interesting story behind the repurchasing of the label ...

  6. Thank you so much and Happy new year.

  7. Thanx for these! happy New year.

  8. Hey Ethics, greetings from Oz! I grabbed these the first time and have been so excited to work through it. To a whitey from Australia like me these are SO important and SO powerful. I really feel like I've won a lottery of sorts by being exposed to these recordings. Very grateful to you for your blog. Long may you keep it up - and long may your crazy weather let you! Cheers, Ace

    1. Wow, for some reason, Blogger thinks your comments are spam haha. I’m not sure why. I had to go into the spam folder and mark it as just a normal comment. Anyway, yeah these re incredible albums, and I’m really glad that you’re enjoying them. It’s seriously great music

  9. Thank you so much. I'm a musician studying jazz and have really wanted to play along and learn from many of these.
