    What a musician/magician! I never heard of Andy Bey before yesterday. I guess I've been living under a rock.

    Bought in vinyl this week! He is recording again for Ricky Tick Records.. Anyway, what I can't put my ears on is the stuff he recorded for Silveto Productions with Horace Silver during the frightening 80s.. If anyone can help :)
