Well, I have a LOT of Ellington 78's...mainly 1927-35 (none of the early
rarities) but also quite a number of the pre-WWII issues (mostly Victor)
and the Musicraft album (where I discovered "Night Train" OUGHT to be
titled "Happy-Go-Lucky Local"...!).
One LP I can recommend (I no longer own a copy) is his collaboration...
I think on Reprise...with Sinatra. IIRC, the title was "Francis Albert
Sinatra Meets Edward Kennedy Ellington"...
