Records that you got straight from the artist
I got in touch with one of the band members of the Danish fusion group Ariel and I got both LPs for free cause he was excited about my interest in the music.For some time I had been bidding on the Ebony Jam Band LP but I was outbid every time until at last I caught a copy fairly cheap. Probably because the guy wasn't auctioning any other records, and didn't put "rare modern soul/booogie......" in the auction description. It turned out the seler was Tony Newson. I gave him props and he told that he's still recording today and he sent me a track that he had recently recorded.I bought a couple of these from the label owner of the label that this LP was released on and at the same time the houseband of Lise Reinau. He was pretty ill and got moved to the hospital while we was talking. He eventually got back out and I bought a few copies. Soon after I heard that he had passed away. R.I.P.Any other have similar stories?
