    Thank you for covering some less common songs. (In terms of covers.)

    This Kind Of Friend is a really uncommon cover. And I love Anouman, Manoir De Mes Rêves, Webster, Appel Indirect, Vamp, et.c.

    What is "This Kind Of Friend" really called? I've seen it as "What Kind Of Friend" and "Some Kind Of Friend" as well. It bothers me a bit.

    It's either "This Kind Of Friend" or "What Kind Of Friend". It isn't registered because it was never actually properly released. The original recording by Django from August 25, 1947 is from a radio broadcast. (Radiodiffusion-Television Française, Paris) and those radio recordings were only transferred to disc and commercially released later. (In the 60's on Vinyl?)

    The other radio broadcasts suffered the same fate. the most famous would be the 1949 Rome sessions with Grappelli. Those were recorded by a chap named Christian Livorness. He stored them amongst Gorgonzola Cheese. A handful were damaged, some unissued because of damage. Those that were issued became so after the release of Vinyl when Livorness sold them. (Some tunes were too long to fit on 78's anyway.) Amongst the unissued ones was a recording of "Nuages". Nobody knows where these unissued discs are now.

    Amongst the records Unissued due to damage were:

    January-February 1949 Rome Acoustic Sessions:

    I'm in the mood for love
    Body and Soul
    Que Reste-t-il Nos Amours?
    and WL-216 which could be I'll never be the same, but sources vary.

    April-May 1950 Rome Electric Sessions:

    Stompin' At The Savoy

    Is this Mam'zelle? Imagine this played by Django and Stéphane with Bass, Piano and Drums! Wow!

    I alla fall, lycka till med försäljningen. Synd att jag inte kan lyssna på demon av "Impromptu". Det verkar vara någon tekniskt fel.

    Anyway, good luck selling your album. Unfortunately I can't listen to the preview of "Impromptu". Seems to be a technical issue.
