This was a cool yard sale find over the weekend. It is an ad-lib jam session with James Dean on bongos, and Bob Romeo on flute. This 45 was made from the original tape. It has him talking and relaxing with freinds. I have never seen anything like this beforeand I am also wondering if anyone else has ever found one, or has any information on it. There is no date on the record, but it appears to be from the 60,s. It was a limited collector's issue, priced at 1.29. The history behind this record is on the back of the cover, and is pretty interesting. The record plays good, and the sound quality is also good. It is really amazing to sit and listen to James Dean talking and playing the bongos ! Hope everyone likes it. Thrifty Gypsy

    It is my pleasure to help. Part of my job for 28 years was finding old parts, manufacturers, and NOS parts for people. I like to do it and I like to help people out. There a lot of great people on here that have helped me identify items that I could not. This is what we all do, why we are here, and besides, I have plenty of time.

    This one seems to be rare. I ran it by both numbers and it was only listed on one site.

    Records are pretty Ho-Hum as research goes but this one seems to be more special. I believe I came up with the same site as Packrat did. I would keep it very safe and secure while researching it. Thanks for sharing it.
