Ms. Marian's Hickory House recordings first appeared on a couple of Savoy ten-inch LPs (24 tracks later reissued on 2LP set SJL 2248, which may be findable via collector spots). Many years later I showed up at a club date of hers to get the small ones signed, and she reacted with (possibly feigned) horror that any copies had survived; she then wrote something like "Destroy this immediately" on the jackets! But I didn't.

I am not surprised to hear that Marian reacted in that way, and I bet the horror wasn't feigned. Many years ago, I gave one of her albums an unfavorable review in Stereo Review. I don't recall which album it was, but made it clear that, as an admirer of her playing, I wish it had never been released.

Marian called me to say that she concurred!

BTW Marc, I really like your blog. Your select your images well and your interviews always bring me new information.
