    I think this is one of the most beautiful records ever made. A while back I promised to upload it. I was just reminded that this never happened, so here it is:

    I hope this is okay since it is rare and out of print. I ripped it straight from the vinyl at my school's library.

    I have the LP, but that is hard to find. I think in this day it is really up to the copyright owners to keep things in print, because if they don't someone else will.
    This is important music and needs to be heard.

    Around here, we just call it "The Album". Some of the most phenomenal bass playing ever recorded.

    I have practically worn out this LP but never burned it to my cyber music devices.

    Thanks for this.

    Not to look a gift horse in the, well you know, but is this safe for my computer? That big blinky ad for the free laptop scares me!

    Man, I'm glad you guys are finally able to hear this album... before, it was the "haves" and the have nots". Everyone should hear this recording. Thanks, Nadav.

    Obvious you'd hear from me being the Red expert and fan I am....I've been lucky enough to have been listening to this side since it was released. Also was lucky enough to have worked with Jim for a minute.
    Every cut is a gem, but Reds solo on his tune ' Beautful ' is breath-taking.
    Welcome to the club!!!!

    Another BIG thanks to Paul Warburton
    who got me serious about Red through his posts.

    for anyone having trouble:
    yesterday I downloaded this and it was just an empty .zip file.
    tried again today & it was a undefined file type called JIM at 60 something Mb.
    .RAR as Toad mentions is a great program to have but I didn't need it to open this file.
    I renamed the file jim.zip,
    used winzip and picked which weird animal stuff I wanted to extract.
    (just .mp3s without the extra extension).

    Thanks Nadav!!!!!!!
