RIP - Les Paul - The New Sound

We've had this one before, but in the light of the sad news of the great man's passing here's one of my Fav tracks from Mr Paul.

I have quite a few of his 78's.. they are mostly on CD and sound superb so there's not much point of posting any more (is there?) Remember If you know of someone with a stack of 78's Tell me!! All I want to do is transfer them and present them here!, Im in no way a "Collector" all I want is to hear the music I love, not to ferret away dusty discs in a dark corner unloved.. that's the biggest crime to music, having all these great sounds hidden!. Hell I don't even have much of a collection! (can't afford any now sadly....) so If you know someone who wants some discs transferred for FREE, expertly too, just ask.

Les Paul - Brazil (Ary Barroso) CAPITOL MX42014

Les Paul created the "multi track" method of recording years before anyone else thought of doing it.
not only does he play all the Guitars but he uses different speeds to layer a true masterpiece,
I quite like the instrumental Les Paul cuts. This one again from a "played to death" CAPITOL pressing.

Re. 78 Collections...
Pity you can't bring your gear to the UK, there are half a dozen guys and gals with very extensive 78 collections, who play them fairly regularly.
If you ever do the long journey to London, look up the Black Cotton Club at the Volupte Lounge (once a month) with El Nino and Lady Kamikaze.
Also there is Tim Hellzapoppin and a guy called Paul who DJs at Sugar Push at the "Positively 4th Street" bar.
