What an Opening!!!

I have been converting old my 1950-60's LPs by cleaning them up (minus pops, 
clicks) CDs and manage to get nearly 2 LPs onto one CD.  These are mostly from 
obscure or non-available modern labels.  They really sound better than they 
did on the old hi-fi.  One CD I have created is by the Queen City JB 
(Cinncinnati) on the Toad Label which is paired up with the Gin Bottle 7 (Carl Halen, 
cornet) on the Empirical label.  These were great bands and I can forward the 
complete list of my restored CDs to anyone interested.  They come with copies of 
the original liner notes and the album covers and additional information 
which I have found on many of the bands.  These are available at $12 each plus 
mail.  Anyone collecting old records or who have trashed out their old turntables 
and want to hear the early bands should contact me by email to order.

In scanning Dan Augustine's list, I find many are still available as CD 
releases* (particularly GoodTime Jazz, Jazzology, and GHB so you're better off 
buying these from a major distribution (not to say that I don't have them).  Those 
which I have and am in the process of converting are highlighted in Bold and 
those which I added to the list are italicized.  This is by no means a 
complete list.  I try to avoid copyright infringing, etc.
