Amazing that such a work can be experienced for a penny under a dollar isn't it?

The history presented here is priceless Marc. Thanks for the lesson.

I count myself fortunate to have seen Jackie after he "disappeared." In 1964, he played a gig at a rather upscale, mob-connected club in Worcester, MA, where I was living at the time. He was really good, as I recall, but my friend and I constituted about 20% of the audience. There were more people working there than there were customers. Sad.
