  2. Quite the collection! I wonder what was released on the missing numbers – the jazz albums on the “home” label were quite unexpected; they sure didn’t service the radio station I worked at with them, and we had a long-running 3-hour daily jazz program.

    Next break I take from writing holiday cards, I’ll check out the next chapter!

    • Usually the missing numbers were unreleased
