Thank you for a nice group of Jimmy Raney and Stan Getz selections, mucho enjoyment in playback.

One problem in CD2 -
selection 12 These Foolish Things is actually an alternate version of selection 11 Fools Rush In.

All three tunes can be found in their "Complete Roost Recordings" CD #3.

Once again, thank you for all your efforts in sharing this wonderful music.
