Ya know, when I start using the phrase "pretentious idiot" in comments on the blog, even when it's not directed at anyone in particular, even when it's meant as a joke of sorts....then it's time for me to step back and take a look at myself. In this case, I think the best answer is to pull out a pin, and burst my own little bubble of pretension. What's fair is fair.

What can I say? I'm very opinionated. I've got a major league mouth on me. I try to be good. It's unfortunate that I don't always succeed.

Anyway, this the most pretentious record I own. There's no reason to own it other than it's a trophy of sorts. Ya see, I could sell it and buy two copies of the more common Capitol pressing.

That said, it's great record, I love owning it...but do I really need an original pressing? Nope.

Hope ya enjoy...it's a nice copy.


  1. Funny that this followed your Mary J Hooper post as I read somewhere it was originally speculated she and Inez Cheatham were one and the same!
    This record is amazing.Shoop!

  2. Indeed, that was what was thought until fairly recently Perrata.

    What folks may not understand is that most of the important digging about Eddie Bo productions has only been done in the last 2/3/4 years.

    Big time credit goes to Dan Phillips, Martin Lawery, Red Kelley, Larry Grogan in this regard, although it's definitely worth pointing out that Jeff Hannush was more or less there before them.
