I bought this at Nagano’s only dedicated vinyl shop, a place called “Good Times”, run by an older fellow and his younger assistant. I must ask next time if I can take a photo of the shop.
I bought it for 680 yen which is cheap as most other albums in the jazz section were around the 1000 to 1500 mark. No idea why, but I ain’t complaining. Both the cover and record are in pristine condition, almost like new.
Stan was a member of the Church of Scientology for a long time. On the back of the cover, in the “thanks to” section, at the end, he wrote…
“…and to the greatest man on the planet – Ron L. Hubbard”.
He came to his senses in 2013 when he left the church.
