Some days it happens ...... that you forget to give your love a hug because it's her birthday ......... It almost happened me. Last weekend I mentioned in the Keep Swinging blog, a weekly web log in Dutch and English to share my passion for jazz, jazz-related music, record collecting and other music projects that surprise me, that its fifth birthday will be celebrated next week. Thanks to Jo, my co-editor, I learned that our the Oscar-Aleman blog, dedicated to the music of the Argentine guitar player Oscar Alemán also had started 5 years ago. And guess .............. This Hit of the Week blog was born today five years ago. The first blog was published the 14th of February, 2006. Isn't that great?
Isn't it great to receive this weekend a mailing from Archeophone records, that reads: Release Notes: The Complete Hit of the Week Recordings, Vol. 4 is coming! Details to follow in our March newsletter.
In 2003 Doug Benson and I started to compile a set of four 2cd's with all, commercially, released Hit of the Week recordings, enlarged with a lot of extras, like test pressings, advertisement- and custom records. The first album was released in 2004, the second in 2005 and the third one in 2007. It is great to learn that the 4th one wil be released this year. We'll keep in touch !
