There is an Amoeba in Los Angeles as well, and Canterbury Records in Pasadena is much like Down Home Records.

My successful raid of A&B Sound in Vancouver, BC:

Lester Young Proper Box Set
Gene Krupa Proper Box Set
(I've heard both are excellent; what I've listened to on the Gene Krupa I like so far).
Pearl Bailey - Chronogical 1944-1947 - nice album; first 2 tracks are with the Cootie Williams Orchestra; last two tracks are a duet with Frank Sinatra - funny, but too much patter to be danceable. I like her voice a lot.
Pee Wee Russell - Swingin' with Pee Wee - seemed like Pee Wee was getting a lot of mention on this board - nice, mellow album, with yet another version of Exactly Like You.
Robert Johnson - Martin Scorsese Presents the Blues

I think the same cd is released as Jack Teagarden, Jazz Great with the tracks in a different order.

Yeah overall it's pretty solid for a Teagarden disk. Right now I'm loving the opening track, "Fort Knox Jump."

Out of the other Teagarden C.D's I have that are fairly good are:
Jack Teagarden- Vol#1 (Jass Records)
Jack Teagarden- Vol#1 (Jazz Archives)

Hope that helps!

If you can find it That's a Serious Thing is a good starter. It covers material from 1929–1957 including the Three T's, Eddie Condon, Fats Waller and Louis Armstrong and His All Stars. Sadly it's out of print.

His big band was a litttle bland however the live transcripts from Frank Dailey's Meadowbrook (1939) Is fun and lively. Again this one is a little hard to come by.

Verve has just reissued his Mis'ry and the Blues on CD for the first time. I haven't heard it yet so I can't coment.
"We called it music."
— Eddie Condon
