Monte Ballou's Castle Jazz Band live recording

Before moving to California in 1950, George Bruns was in Monty Ballou's Castle Jazz Band in Portland, OR. This is an acetate recording of the band at the 419 "Jazz" Club in Portland, WA. Probably recorded and used as a radio show. A one of a kind recording! I cannot confirm the date of this recording, but the annoucer mentions Johnnie Ray, who had his first hit on this label, so this was probably late 50s. 


This paper cliping from the Oregonian 1984, was enclosed in the record sleeve.  On one of the pictures of the record you can see the 3 holes used to hold the record while it was recorded.
