    Ok, so a few days ago I was at the recycled books/music store, and I happened to walk by the LP aisle. I found around 10 Harry James albums, most of them in pristine condition. Unfortunately, I only had 20 bucks in my pocket, so I only got two. One is "22 Original Big Band Recordings", which is an excellent album, IMO. The other is Jazz Session, which is a little bit of the older James, and not exactly what you'd normally expect from his big band. Anyway, I spent the last day of my break back home transferring them over to CD, and they turned out rather well. Sooo, if anyone who knows how to not let the authorities know would like to have a copy, give me a few days to get resituated in my dorm (I've only been back for a few hours), and then I'll see if I can't share the wealth.

    I'll post the track lists later if I remember.

    Hey Aggie,

    I'll take one of each! Those are great albums but I've never been able to find them in LP, much less CD!

    PM me and I'll send you my address!

    Ok, so I'm off to the store to get the blanks. All those who would like a copy, please IM me your names and addresses that way I'll know who to mail them to.

    EDIT: I'm having to postpone the whole thing for a while. My computer is acting quite goofy and I can't get the burner to work. I'll get back to ya'll when I have it fixed, but it will more than likely be a while. :dontknow:
