MTed: I'll see if I can scare it up.

The jacket of _Copulatin' Blues_ (Stash ST-101) informs me that the performance of "Stavin' Chain" was *recorded* on the day I was born -- and, if the Harlem Hamfats were in fact in Harlem at the time, then not far from where it happened, either (Harkness Pavilion Hospital). Perhaps that is a more significant part of my musical horoscope.

The first song I ever *heard* was very likely "Rozhenkes mit Mandeln". I have the copy in my mother's handwriting that she studied it from while she was waiting for me to appear.
