Monday Night Vinyl

It’s been a total butthole of a day at work so now that the workouts are all finished I can sit down to bowl of cashew chicken, a bottle of Belgian Moon Wheat Beer and some live, mellow jazz with the ‘Dance Date Air Force U.S.A. March 1958‘  bootleg by Duke Ellington.


Released on the Jazz Conoisseur label, this Italian mono 10-track album was originally recovered from a rare radio broadcast.

Aaaaaand that’s about all I know about it aside from the fact it has a bunch of tunes on it that I don’t have on any of my other albums thus far like ‘Snada‘, ‘Vivi‘, ‘Willow Weep for Me‘, ‘Blue Star‘  and, well, most of the tracks are labeled as “first time on record” so that’s cool.

And it is!

I also can’t help but notice that the last track is ‘Basement‘, the same track I remember hearing the high school band playing in ‘Back to the Future‘ movie (click HERE).

How weird is that?

Anyway, I found it at the Orange Monkey record store in Waterloo, Ontario this past Saturday and for $13.50, I certainly wasn’t good to pass it by as I’ve been really enjoying the Duke as of late and right now, it’s rocking my world.


About crazytigerrabbitman

I am a fat guy and always will be in the same way they say that “once an alcoholic; always an alcoholic”. Eventually I got upset about my poor health and ballooning body frame so I decided to change things for the better. Some people sign up for Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, or whatever fad diet program it is that happens to be occupying the majority of air time on the boob tube. Other people prefer to run out and purchase the latest, fold away, piece of shit being hawked by some celebrity has-been. Me? I decided to take up triathlon. I had abused my body over the years with bacon cheeseburgers, pints of beer and double-dipped donuts, and the time had now come to abuse my body with physical exertion, perseverance and hard work instead; penitence in it's purest form. The time had come to kick my ass. I am Terry Nash and I am the “fat and the furious”.
