Charlie Mingus – Jazz Makers ep (126 106 MCE) (1960)

SAM_0368Not everything was an unqualified success this weekend. This lovely 7″ ep from Charles Mingus, while containing prime examples of the edgy big band style one associates with the influential bassist/band leader, is overburdened with surface noise. I am hoping to organise a disc washing system which will at least give vinyl like this a chance–more to come in this vein later.SAM_0370Likewise, the A-side of this Wicked Wilson Picket 45 is unplayable; however, the flip is in fine shape and a great tune to boot. I’ve been keeping an eye out for the 7″ers much more lately following the installation of the MegaSingles Storage Unit®.

  1. mustang sally – arrgghh! i don’t know if that song was popular in the states or not, but it meant nothing for years after it’s original release in blighty until it was revived in “the commitments”, since when laws have been decreed that a: every pub band has to have it as part of their repertoire, and a: it has to be done at least once at every karaoke event that ever takes place…

    • Just as well that’s the side that doesn’t play.
