    1. Spot on, Timothy. I looked up the discography at the back of 'Congo Co3&9suso#ls; and computed that (TP)OK Jazz had 84 albums listed of which I also worked out that I'd heard exactly 75% (63). I'll bet that over half of those have been heard from this blog. You're a champion, Moos. (PS. Franco lovers also have much to thank the World Service blog for)
