Sorry to spoil the fun but this album is available at bandcamp.

No worries Ernst. Visited bandcamp and had more fun with $7 than I've had in a while! Does anyone reading this know how much the band gets? I'd like to think it's more than they'd get from a label. In any event, thanks for the heads up.

@Rev.B Bandcamp return around 75% for the artists, it is the actual best deal for them. ...and if you think that 7$ is not enough you can pay a higher price, bandcamp gives this possibility too.

@ correct silence, thanks for the info. That is a much better deal for them. I thought that might be the case, so I generally do add a dollar or two.

I'm very disappointed, as you can imagine I haven't checked on bandcamp before making this post because I was far to imagine that someone could still take care of Al Tanner's music. So when Ernst posted the info I thought that all the "touché records" catalogue was available but only the Al Tanner is. So if someone have "Les Oubliés De Jazz Ensemble" on lp and cant rip it it would be great.
