Count Basie & His Orchestra
"Chairman of the Board" (Vinyl)

I'm not exactly sure what this means; internet searches have done little to explain to me why every online image of "Chairman of the Board" was a Roulette Records release and my pressing was released on a label called Emus.
I will speculate that this was an international release and this record was originally purchased somewhere outside of the United States.  Until I learn otherwise...

Recorded and released in 1959, this is prime-time Basie swing.  The firs time I heard "Boss in Hoss' Flat" Jerry Lewis was mugging to it in one of his films.

Is there a better way to start a grey morning?
