Roland Kirk: The Limelight/Verve Albums

Read "Roland Kirk: The Limelight/Verve Albums" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan


Several years ago when this writer was looking for rarities to include in the column Jazz From the Vinyl Junkyard, the chances for the medium to make a huge comeback seemed to be slim at best. Fast forward and it seems that vinyl is the new black, with efforts to market it to a fresh and ...
