Wow, I love the jazzbros blog, thanks! It looks like tracks 1 and 2 from disc 4 (Village Blues and an alternate take) are missing. Is that possible? I look to see if they were somewhere else - in case perhaps the tracks had been rearranged - but that doesn't look to be the case. Is there any way these might be able to be tracked down? Thanks!
