I had found out about this record somehow back in the 90's, and I'd had it on my wish list for years till someone else finally posted it on another blog. Of course, I have to check out your rip so I can make sure to have the best quality! This is of course an example of generosity and effort for the sake of the music, and I wish I had better ways of showing my appreciation than my little anecdotal stories!

I was lucky enough to find a lossless copy of this beauty a while ago. But, like Newk, I'm going to download your rip. Thanks very much for the splendid share, Nick.

Bought this on LP many years ago and it's fantastic, one of my favorite Mal LPs. It's actually quite surprising that no reissue has appeared.

I asked many friends decades ago: Who was the lucky lady referred to in the title? And still haven't found out ...

Mal Waldron is pretty much the bee's knees. I've been looking for this one a long time. Cheers.

If I recall correctly Orgy In Rhythm shared it a few years ago. I'm following the gang in ensuring I have the highest quality rip. Many thanks, Nick. I'm particularly pleased to be prompted to go back and listen again.

I think WallofSound is correct. I love this record and even the cover of Eleanor Rigby can be decent if you are in the right mood
