Jimmy Gordon & His Jazznpops Band - HOG FAT LP 69


 A big thanks (yet again) to our fine contributor E.W. for another classy obscuro find!  I had been wavering between using his name with no periods in the past--not being consistant--which during search brought up a bunch of extra garbage so I went back and labeled all his past submissions or my buys from what he asked about with 'E.W.' (two periods) so if you search above you can find his deep studies into obscure buried classics at this blog!!  Thanks again bud!   https://gofile.io/d/LfxTSp
