It was such a treat hanging out with her, pouring over music (while finding out we have very similiar tastes... scary :)), a...

Actually, I don't think it's that bad looking at all. It seems a bit easier to read to me.

I still prefer buying CDs over MP3s, but I do buy digitally, for all the reasons said earlier. I would have to say my buying split is about 70% CDs/30% MP3s.

I just found the Wynonie Harris set in a local bookstore and I'm in love. I cannot recommend it highly enough.

I'm interested in the Anita O'Day, Lionel Hampton and an anthology they have called Broke, Black and Blue.

Thanks all for your comments.

Probably not, but they do destroy the boundaries of good taste.

I might want to buy that from you. Have to check to see what I have at home. Not sure I'd have anything you'd want to trade.

My secret is out. I've been doing the strip club DJ thing for years. That's what I thought you guys meant by "swing" DJs.
