I've been looking for this CD for years, but it went OOP very quickly and was stupidly expensive on Amazon (used copies are $500 right now!). It's a free download on the band's page now, even the lossless versions (FLAC *and* ALAC)!

https://davinaandthevagabonds.bandcamp. ... -the-times

This is fun horn-filled blues. I don't DJ blues events or fusion events or whatever the kids call them these days (insert rant about it not being a true dance, etc. etc.), but I really like this CD. I will happily play "Put a Lid on It" (175 bpm) and "This Little Light of Mine" (123 bpm) at a lindy event. The rest I'll probably just listen to at home with a big smile (or grimace, as the mood dictates) on my face.

Get it. It's awesome.

Nice find, and possibly the last swing band to record at the Times -- it closed the year that album came out. Thanks for sharing!
