"sittin' in"--Jazz Clubs of the 1940s And 1950s (2 photos added)
While others tossed, self-described music executive, historian, collector, archivist and memorabilia dealer Jeff Gold (an accurate though woefully incomplete description, by the way) was one of those prescient individuals who, as a young man, saw the intrinsic value in most everything physical related to the wondrous post World War II growth of music both as culture and as business.

Andover Audio's Super-Versatile, High Performance Model-One Turntable Music System
