Hi Bill et al,

Many thanks for the info. I guess I'll have to watch eBay for a copy of the 
Mosaic before my ancient LP finally gives up, I've got very fond memories of 
the album and learned a lot about driving a band from the fine propulsive 
drumming of Herbie Lovelle. Not a Dixieland drummer by any stretch of the 
imagination, but a fantastic swinger.
