  4. Hi, I don't know if this is the right way to ask a repost about John Mehegan - Jazz in Africa, but I try..
    I recently bought an antology with same title but only 7 tracks ( 5 from vol 1 and 2 from vol 2)plus the first lp by Jazz Epistles. Sadly John Mehegan's name didn't appear! I'd like listen all songs! John Mehegan is a forgotten hero of black-white integration. It will be intersting to listen lp "From barrehouse to bop" in duo with Cherles Mingus.
    Thanks
    Alessandro

      I bought lp from discogs, and there's alot of popos and cracks, I did my best to remove them, but you're free to do what you want to improve the sound.
      Best regards
