RARITY #57

LUCKY THOMPSON AND JACK SELS TRIO & SEXTET
EP "BONGO JAZZ"  -  Germany, 1959
BERTELSMANN SCHALLPLATTENRING 66126 - 7" / MANHATTAN C 66126 # 7"

Another rarity thanks to onxidlib.  Actually, it is not the first occurrence of this record in the blog sphere, it was already posted on the Berlin Beatet Bestes blog in 2010.  By the way, it's an excellent blog that I recommend highly. And I’m very jealous of Andreas who manage to buy this EP for 2 €   (read his story, it’s great fun.  Aren’t we – collectors - all like him?).  Man, you’re lucky! These European Jazz EPs have become highly collectable and can fetch unreasonable prices in auction.  This one is no exception. 

What I did not know was that it had been reissued in the late sixties on a budget LP.  It’s our man onxidlib who found out and ripped it directly from the LP.  

You will find more info on the Berlin Beatet Bestes blog where you can also download the single “Bongo, Bongo, Bongo” by Sam& the Saxtones (aka Jack Sels).  Ils sont fous, ces Germains!

    1. The remaining tracks/musicians are as follows:
      Two tracks from the LP/CD The C-Jam Allstars "Diminuendo and crescendo in blue" - most probably still available.
      Than two tracks from Hans Koller's New Jazz Stars which will be re-issued through Sonorama tomorrow. Originally from “Hans Koller Cool Jazz” on Manhattan 66035C.
      And finally two tracks from an EP which had 3 titles from the Johannes Rediske Quintet (and a duo) > Bertelsmann EP 7686.
      It seems that the Rediske tunes weren't re-released.
