Thanks for this. I own the vinyl but never get the time to convert a lot of my vinyl to mp3 etc. Got this for a nice price when I was hunting for everything Grant Green related. Love Cantaloupe Woman for which Grant Green done an even funkier version on one of his own albums. Excellent to see someone take the time and pleasure to share this stuff.
