For fans of the great singer Jackie Paris, know that the fine blog site, Big 10 Inch Record , currently has Paris' first LP available for download.
Note: a bit of amplification on the blogger's comment re: my association with Paris. It's a bit of a stretch to say that I knew him "personally." But I did meet and see Jackie perform once, received a few letters from him, which I cherish, and had a couple of phone calls from the man. A bit remarkably, he even sent me a couple of his Japanese CDs when I was having trouble finding copies of them---pre-cyber shopping---stateside. One hears tales of his imapatience with various record biz functionaries, but he sure was nice to his fans, i.e. me.
