I have to get this book. Growing up outside of Philadelphia, Third  
Street Jazz was like a mecca for me. It got soooo much of my $$$, and  
I wouldn't have it ANY differently. In it's heyday, this store (along  
with WRTI) was the best course of jazz (and music) history that a  
younger person could get.  Those two things influenced so much of who  
I am as a working musician today. If there is anyone on this list  
that was a part of either of those, THANK YOU!!!!
