Wonderful - Mobley never failed to generate artful music, even this late.

MonkSphere said...

Thanks, Ubu - the Japanese CD that has released some of these tracks notes the date as 10 March 1968.

ubu said...

No idea what their source is ... might even be what we have here, as that bootleg set also seems to contain the Griffin/Mobley set that yours truly helped to put together (not that I'm the source, but a friend helped fixing speed, I did some splicing etc.)

Anyway, p. 7 of this article gives "April 1968" as date - and might be the best source we have so far:

Mobley is a great favourite of mine and this is all new to me - wonderful! Many thanks ubu.

Thanks Ubu , your the man!

Musrafak said...

Do yuo have the covers?

ubu said...

no, sorry - and don't know about "the" covers (which ones? this is not sourced from any illegitimate release, it's the files that are in circulation among traders)

anon'n'on said...

thanks for hank

Musrafak said...

Please, forgive my poor english, ubu. i was trying to allude to the scans. You konw, the Booklet, Tray, Back and things like that.

ubu said...

No problem, I understood that.

It's just that this is a file-set shared on various platforms for many years, and I never received any (self-made) covers for it, never did any myself, so there are none.

This is not a rip of some bootleg edition of the same material that would of course come with covers.
