Dear Jim and friends.
By sheer coincidence, yesterday I was browsing through the jazz section of a
Sydney (Australia) bookshop, and there was the Studs Terkel book, 'Giants of
A new reprint by US publisher, New Press.
Unfortunately, our $$$ exchange rate meant that it was far too expensive for
what it is.
About A$70.00! The same price as Mr Sudhalter's new Hoagy Carmichael book.
Gary Giddens' Bing Crosby book (which I did buy) was only A$39.95.
Go figure, as they say.
Book prices here are more variable than those for CDs.
I chose not to buy Mr Terkel's book from the Jazz Book Club in the early 60s, so
I think I can wait for a cheap secondhand copy to turn up one day.
