                                 Release Notes
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Don't know much about this other than the recordings probably date long before 
1972.  Everest Records basically became a reissue label in its later years 
after a somewhat low budget startup back in the day.   

Buddy Rich did a few vocal albums over his career and this self-titled release 
has some of that.  Who knows, if he hadn't been the drummer he was he might 
have even taken Sinatra's place back in the days when they were both in Tommy 
Dorsey's band.  (Some weird alternate history for you sci-fi geeks.)  This is 
kind of uneven and definitely schmaltzy for a release of the period, but it was 
a reissue after all.  Nevertheless, the (disappointingly few) big band tracks 
here sizzle as always.   Enjoy it if you don't have it. - MM

This originated from a lossless audio stream rip from a Tidal music service 
subscription of mine.  Rip was done using an Asus Xonar DG sound card.  Wave 
editor was Cool Edit Pro using 48k/floating 32 bit settings.  It was then 
converted down to 24 bit using DbPowerAmp, then converted to flac files. The 
only changes done were the total silencing of any random system noise between 
tracks. (For those of you in the .mp3 binaries, I compressed it further to 320 
kb/s with DbPowerAmp using Lame encoder.)  Track timings will approximate that 
of the original release but are by no means exact to the second.  

Because of the lack of .log and .cue files it probably won't be something a 
hard core collector wants.  But it's plenty good enough for the average 
listener. In terms of sound quality, I see no reason why it should be 
distinguishable from your garden variety CD.  Tracks are tagged and I put some 
info in the comments section about the source and .wav gathering, just to keep 
the digital gene pool organized.  If possible I'll try to find some artwork off 
the web to include with it.
