Dear friends, 
I have just been advised that the new Eddie Condon discography, mentioned by Don
Mopsick in the Riverwalk 'Jazz Me News', and which I had ordered. has sold out.
I have also received a copy of the following email which I assume (and hope)
isn't confidential.

Subject: Eddie Condon discography from Italy 

 FYI--The Condon book is  a travesty!!!!  So many inaccuracies and errors.  It
is a shame that such  an archival document is allowed to be published and sold. 
There was no effort to correct  errors in previous printing.  Such recordings
that I produced were totally incorrect re. personnel and the author never took
the time to contact me for accurate ino.  Sorry.  Am not a critical person, but
this publication is a waste.                                       Joe Boughton
