El solar wrote some names from his want list a while back; we found this special recording which features some of them. Personal listening experience says the meeting did not bring the results we might have expected. But we did read the Estival book, and we quote, more or less:
"The quartet came back after that memorable night in 1980 (...). Perhaps it was a mistake to have Archie join them in their second appearance. Truth is they did not get along well. Before the end of the concert Archie left the stage and walked solitary and drunkenly the Via Nassa, blowing his sax in the dark...

Archie is not singing the blues here, carville. George is though, and he's great at it. And Danny is displaying some very good gospel singing. And when the quartet plays their stuff, they are fantastic!

Never for sale, do not turn into mp3 or silver bootleg!
