My afternoon's enjoyment was listening - for the first time in a while - to the whole 1938 Benny Goodman Carnegie Hall concert.

Because there's no single complete sound source, I used a variety - kicking off with "Don't Be That Way" from the Columbia Disc Jockey-issue 78. Used the 1999 CD issue where necessary for the first half; otherwise stuck with an original-stampers pressing of SL-160 - especially for "I Got Rhythm," where the CD omits some music.

Here's hoping that someday soon we'll see a truly accurate issue of the concert.
