  2. Thanks for this Pete – sessions with Handy are relatively scarce, so I’m looking forward to hearing this one!!! By the way, the .flac/.zip issue seems to have gone away…don’t know what caused it, don’t know why it receded…

  3. Many thanks for this gem – I’ve always loved the 1960s albums by this band. There’s something about that sax/violin/guitar front line that I find appealing. For those who want more, there’s a fairly obscure but excellent recording of the 1994 “reunion” of this group called Live at Yoshi’s Nightspot. Definitely worth a listen. – Marco
