When will democrats in Atlanta ever decide to try and compromise with the moderate republicans in the the city to end the race politics JUST 1 TIME?  Whenever this does happen, the city will begin to pull itself together again.  Racial politics are why we are in this horrible place in the rest of the USA.  Sooner or later, common sense has to rise to the surface and a new political party HAS to be developed that is a true meeting in the middle of both repub and dem ideology. 

After eight years the Maynard Ferguson Orchestra was in its last period when it recorded a couple of LPs for Mainstream. The band's sound and winning spirit were still unchanged from its prime days and this excellent album (which features solos from the trumpeter/leader, valve trombonist Rob McConnell , altoist Lanny Morgan , Willie Maiden on tenor, baritonist Ronnie Cuber and pianist Mike Abene ) is a fine example of the orchestra's music. Highlights include "Airegin," "Green Dolphin Street" and a remake of "Three More Foxes" (although their version of "People" can be safely skipped).

John Lineker missed the 126 pound weight allowance for a Flyweight fight, weighing in at 129 pounds. As a result, he surrendered 20 percent of his purse to his opponent, José Maria, and the bout took place as a 129-pound catchweight fight. [13]

The idea of 7" singles playing at 33-1/3 rpm was hardly new when Columbia re-introduced that format to the public in 1959. Back in the late 1940s, when Columbia and RCA-Victor were battling to see which speed would replace the 78, Columbia went all the way and started issuing their now-microgroove singles on the 33 speed (see example, below right). They even added radial "rumble strips" around the label to keep them from slipping when on a changer. But they were just weren't popular with record buyers and 45s quickly won out for singles. Columbia had to be content with a victory on albums. By mid-1952, the 7" 33 singles were banished from Columbia's catalog (they had never been in other catalogs).

When rival RCA-Victor jumped in on the stereo 45s in a big way in 1958, Columbia sat back and waited. Ultimately, they totally refused to give in to RCA's stereo-45 singles, although the did start issuing stereo EPs in February, 1959. Instead, they re-introduced their brainchild 33-single, this time in stereo, during the summer of 1959.

A bad idea is also a bad idea ten years later, usually. The record buying public still disliked the 33s. As singles, you couldn't put your thumb through a stack of them to keep from dropping them, and the fidelity wasn't much improvement, if any, to most customers' ears. Within a very few months, Columbia's dream of a single-speed industry (at 33-1/3, of course) failed completely.

By the start of 1960, the only solid customer the stereo-33 single had was the juke box operators, who stocked their stereo juke boxes with them. All the record labels began shipping stereo-33 singles to the juke box people in little packets of five discs, along with title strips for the juke boxes and 5x5-inch slick photos of the album from which the packet was derived. The juke box folks loved it.

A vast majority of the stereo-33 singles listed in this discography started as part of a 5-disc package for juke boxes. By 1962, the idea of selling stereo-33 singles at the local record store was about done, and the juke boxers started going for stereo EPs and "Little LPs" with three songs on each side, costing the listener 25 cents instead of one song for 10 cents. The Little LPs lasted much longer than the stereo- 33 singles, reaching into the 1970s.
