This is more than appreciation! I have been looking for this album for years!

Finally got this unpacked & sorted! As best as I can figure, the original ripper reversed the two sides; that is, the correct sequence (by filename) is 06.flac, 07, 08, 09, 10, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05. "Out to Lunch" and "Sophisticated Lady" are fused in file 07.flac (he announces the first title, the lyrics to "SL" are clearly recognizable. All the announced tracks line up with their correct titles, and the file numbers are sequential within the sides. Give it a try in that order!

another great post ... i knew of the other Human Arts records, never heard of this one,
by the way, I hereby vote to abolish all future use of rapidshare... it is not like they are improving their crappy throttling and limits.(though i must admit many of the shares that were around back then did not last at all, rapidshare at least held on a few years)

Hi Santos Curser, that's the reason I keep my RS links.
It is the only file-hoster which hasn't deleted my links (~96%).
Of course this company isn't less a p.o.t.a. as most others (or all of them).
If a re-up to another file-hoster is necessary I shall do so.

Obviously rapidshare wasn't as reliable as I thought...

Another great share, onxidlib...thank you!

This was a wonderful group and if anyone has other albums by them to share I'd love too hear them too. In particular I'd love to hear the second volume of "Live in Trio Performances" on the Circle label. I bought the first volume when it was first released on vinyl back in the day but have never been able to find a copy of Vol. 2
